Pelican Kentucky Pelican

Brewed by Pelican Brewing Company

Barrel-Aged American Strong Ale8.2% ABV35 IBU

Kentucky Pelican: Inspired by the mixed drink of a similar name, Kentucky Pelican takes aspects of those ingredients and turns them into a drinkable and refreshing strong ale. American strong ale aged in bourbon barrels, dry hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Dry Spiced with ginger and lime.

Appearance: Deep copper to amber color, off white head.

Aroma: Fresh ginger, bright lime-citrus, very subtle hint of mint.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, fully coats the palate, spec’d at 2.65 vols, alcohol content noticeable.

Flavor: Bready and slightly toasty with an earthy hop profile backed by the spice of ginger. Mild notes of bourbon, vanilla and ethanol in the finish.

Overall: Good drinkability, smooth with a slightly warming finish. The spice from the ginger and the acidity of the lime cut through the malty body to provide a refreshing take on the mule cocktail.

Specs/Ingredients: 18 Plato, 8.2% ABV, 35 IBU; NW Pale malt, Munich malt, Magnum, Fuggle, Aramis, Mandarina Bavaria hops, Ginger, and Lime.

Big and delicious for your ’perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Despite the technological advances, this beer is brewed according to ancient tradition and unites, as before, the best raw materials from our soil as ripe barley and fine hops, to preserve a maximum of pure flavor. This beer was originally brewed for the Knights of the Golden Fleece in 1491. Full graceful tenderness, with a clean and neat taste, this beer will enchant you: matured in the bottle, exclusively obtained from pale malt, highly fermented and 100% natural. With a full-bodied flavor that still works thirst quenching, thanks to a balanced hopping. For ideal savouring, gently pour out in one fluent movement, at a temperature of 5-7° C (41-45°F). This pleasant golden blond beer is preferred by all who loves heavier, somewhat seasoned and refreshing beer.

This is an aggressive beer. You probably won't like it. It is quite doubtful you have the taste or sophistication to be able to appreciate.
