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.

Merry Monks’ is a Belgian style Abby Tripel. To be true to the style, Merry Monks’ Ale is bottle conditioned. This means we add a bit of sugar and yeast just prior to bottling. This imparts a special effervescence to the beer, a creamier carbonation, and also extends the shelf life.

An aborted batch of their Old Gnarleywine ended up tasting nearly as good as that they were hoping for, so they bottled it. God bless capitalism.
