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.

Had my first one of these 15 years ago, and it's still one of my "go to" beers. Love it in the bottle and adore it on tap.

It's better on-tap than out of the bottle, but it still isn't the best ale I've had by a long shot. Still, I'd order it again if I absolutely had to drink something I knew was decent, and if I wasn't in the mood for untested beers.
