3.53/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
12 oz bottle from my second Beer of the Every Other Month Club. Poured into a tulip glass.
A - Classic look. Very appealing. Crystal clear copper body. Light tan head. Good retention. Very fine bubbles.
N - earthy malts and hops. Not really too citrusy or piney. Maybe some rye?
T - tasty. Hops flavor but not overpowering. Good biscuity malt body.
M - smooth and drinkable.
O - I rather enjoyed this beer from Virgina. Cheers!

A: Golden orange. Small amount of white foam that left some sticky dots. Medium carbonation. Like some other brews from Legend, a hunk of sediment was at the bottom of my bottle. The sediment chunks made it into the glass in a separated murky haze.
S: Wheat, oats and rye. Slightly sweet malt. Dried grass and hay.
T: Sweet cashew nut and honey and malt up front. A light bittering follows with dried leaf and floral notes and grass. A medium amount of wet pine sap. Finishes off with a crisp finish and a slight metallic mineral finish.
M: Great easy drinking pale. Nice and light bodied with an easy crisp finish. Mellow and cool and mostly clean, except for a slight lingering mineral aftertaste.
O: Not bad pale. A nice lighter version of a pale without all of the dryness. Some places have really overdone the dry hop lately and it's nice to see a restrained version that finishes more crisp than dry. All that said, I felt like there wasn't all that much exciting going on here. Maybe good for kicking back a six pack, but a little boring for sitting down and enjoying a one-off beer,
