Notes/Commercial Description:
Our most popular beer, Legend's is a full bodied version of a British Brown Ale. Expect a rich, malt-forward brew with a beautiful mahogany tone. Generous amounts of specialty malts bring flavors of sweet caramel, toasted nuts, coffee, and molasses, all perfectly balanced by a steady but cautious hop dryness. Fruity undertones provided by our house yeast strain bring the final flavor element to round out this world class ale.

When in the Central Virginia area, make sure you treat your tastebuds to this smooth, slightly sweet concotion. The deep brown color says it will be heavy. It is not. The aroma says nutty, and it is, but its in the back fringe of the flavor profile. Stops just short of making your mouth giddy. Can be dangerously seductive which leads to mass consumption. Then when you stand up the alcohol kicks in and the world spins. Tap version far superior to bottle.
