Kentucky Ale Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale, 5.5% ABV pick up from Total Wine, is brewed in Lexington Kentucky and is 100% barrel aged. Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale pours a clean orange color with a one finger fizzing white head with sweet vanilla aroma with thin barrel oak that guides you into a sweet vanilla taste that washes quickly of your tongue with hints of a smooth sweetness with a lingering finish of vanilla that is soda like and a much similar aftertaste that lingers with vanilla with a medium mouthfeel. Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale has lots of sweet vanilla to it with very little barrel notes and I think its C-. The sweet vanilla flavor hold the beer to be average but not great. This beer has more of a vanilla soda like quality to it that is okay at best and I don’t think I would hurry back to have Kentucky Vanilla Barrel Cream Ale again! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
