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 beer is served all over Tidewater Virginia in restaurants. I have had it on tap, 12 oz bottles and 22 oz bottles and have never gotten around to reviewing it. I bought a 12 oz bottle at Total Wine, Chesapeake for the express purpose of a review.

Pours a mahogany brown color with plenty of red light shining through. Medium size antique white/very light tan head with average retention. Some lacing on the glass.

Smell is roasted malt and a little chocolate. Fairly mild.

Tastes pretty good. Malt forward with roasted malt and a little chocolate. There is some mild balancing hops. Overall a fairly mild but tasty beer.

Mouthfeel is crisp, maybe a little on the light side but goes well with food. A little potent for a session beer at 6.00% but the alcohol is not noticeable.

Nothing outstanding but I am always happy to see it on a menu.
