Made my first trip through a drive-thru for alcohol. The boys were convinced they could get a milk shake.
First up was the Bluegrass Brewing Company's Nut Brown Ale. By far the best of the 3. Really was an average ale, drinkable and possibly chuggable. Drank 2 of 'em. At $8.99, I thought it overpriced. Grade=B-, PQ=21
Next up were the Kentucky Brewing Company offerings. I started with the Bourbon Barrel Ale. I like bourbon and I like beer, so this should've been win-win, but it was far from a winner. This stuff smelled like bourbon, which isn't a bad thing normally, but when you're expecting beer it just doesn't feel right. They must've left a lot of bourbon in the barrels, before the beer was poured in. The taste of bourbon is strong. Really, this tasted like a bourbon beer mixture, with the bourbon flavor overpowering the beer. Yet the beer was still there, making this a horrible concoction slightly better than the Fruity NAs of the middle east. Grade=D, PQ=5.45
Their other offering, Kentucky Ale wasn't that great. An average ale at best that's very overpriced. Grade=C, PQ=11.
Next time I'm in Kentucky, I'll stick with the bourbon.
