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,

Orange/copper in color with an off- white foam, this pale ale is somewhat weak in the nose, with scents of light grain and a floral presence. There is a fair amount of lacing and the beer seems to hold promise from an appearance standpoint.
With the taste, this beer has a grainy, biscuit- malt profile, some flavors of hay and toffee, toasted malt, bread, and piney, herbal hops. There is some citrus in there, too, and the beer manages to keep itself rather balanced overall.
Legend Pale Ale is not the hop bomb as some have described it, but the hops definitely make themselves known. I find it rather nicely balanced overall and while not a superstar in its class, it does have enough good going for it to recommend.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A very foamy off white head, that forms like liquid soap at three fingers tall. Lots of retention, with a body of simple pale amber, fairly clear if a little hazy. Soapy lacing rings on the glass throughout while drinking.
Nose is a bit of dense biscuity like malts. Light herbal and hinting citrus hop angle with the malts prominent. Fairly solid, nothing too crazy or impressive.
Body comes with a light but nearly wet feel. Light hop and dry pine angle a bit, but with a fleeting finish. Herbality and mint seems to come on the aftertaste but the malt backbone on this is hardly supportive. A bit grainy also.
Overall it's not terrible but it's not too impressive either unfortunately.

First had: on tap at Legend
Clear, amber pour with a small fizzy white head that receded to a tight ringlet. Aroma of grassy and earthy hops, sweet malt backbone. Standard stuff, once again. Taste of light grassy/earthy/citrus hops, sweet caramel malts, a bit of apple skin in there, mildly bitter with a somewhat metallic aftertaste. Light-medium body. A fair beer overall.
