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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle from my Beer of the Every Other Month Club poured into a pint glass.

A -- Pretty nice looking body. Its got some stuff flotsam and jetsam floating around in it--sediment, if you will. Nice color, not too dark. Eggshell colored foam with solid lacing and very good retention of a layer of foam.

N -- Kind of nutty. Mostly malt smells here... breads or crackers or biscuits or something.

T -- Straightforward brown ale. Nothing crazy going on. Malty with a nice hop dryness and a little nut or fruit backdrop.

M -- Very drinkable and smooth.

O -- I liked this, i would drink it again.

Cheers.
