BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Legend Brewing Co.
Virginia, United States | website

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This is a nice, well balanced and highly quaffable brew. Living in the Richmond vicinity, you find it on tap in a lot of local restaurants and pubs. Hints of nuts and a little malt on the palate, with a clean finish. Goes great with a variety of foods. Legend doesn't pasturize it's beers, so it always has a pleasantly fresh taste.

Enjoyed my first-ever Legend bier.... This Brown (currently at 6.0%) has an attractive amber color, a little lace, and a fine, creamy tan head. Nose consisted of some caramel and malty notes....nice! Pleasant mouthfeel and good flavors abound. Some of the caramel and roasted malts show up nicely, and the hops (Tettnang & Mt Hood) make a brief cameo at the finish. Easy drinking!

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.
