Notes/Commercial Description:
A step above mass produced lager beers, Legend Lager offers the comfort of easy drinkability while also bringing a depth of flavor due to our use of 100% barley malt, yeilding a pure, bright malt flavor and a medium body. Modest hopping and cool fermentation temperatures make for a smooth character and a clean finish.

Draught @ Brewpub: This one poured a pale golden color. There was a small white head that left no lacing. There was almost no aroma. Faint malt and a bit of grassy or earthy hops. The taste is OK, but very unexciting. A step up from commercial lagers, but not a big step. It is pretty well executed. Not bad for just a cold one.

Serving type: on-tap

Pours clear golden with a rocky off-white head. The aroma has lots of butter, smooth minimally toasted pale malt, odd fruitiness and some plastic. Medium body with mild carbonation. The flavor starts with some sour fruit, funked up maltiness and light tartness. The finish is very medicinal and off-sourness.

Bought a 22oz bottle of this on 11/10/11. I've always been a fan of Legend but I've only had the lager a handful of times and decided it was finally time to give it a review.

A - Nice solid yellow color. Two-finger, white head. Minimal lacing and not very much carbonation. 4.0

S - I seriously can't smell anything. Maybe a hint of yeast, maybe malt as well? I've put my nose almost in the beer and I still can't tell what I'm smelling. 2.0

T - Taste is pretty smooth and delicate. Sweet at the beginning with some subtle malt flavors and slight hop bitterness at the end. It's sweetness is a little off-putting at times, and it seems a bit watery. Otherwise it's incredibly drinkable and if it was on-tap for a decent price I'd pay for it over Miller, Bud, etc. 3.0

M - Smooth and crisp with a bit of carbonation. Insanely drinkable. 3.0

O - This is a decent Lager. I would definitely buy it on-tap over some of the other big name breweries, but on its own I think there are definitely better options. 3.0

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass.

Appearance: Pours a translucent, very pale, yellow color. Has a thin, fizzy head that dissipates almost immediately and leaves no discernible lacing.

Smell: Has a very clean nose with only a hint of malty sweetness to it.

Taste: Modestly bitter up front with a sweet maltiness that continues throughout the beer. Has a slightly bready quality to it as well. Pretty standard, unoffensive lager territory here.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, clean, and refreshing.

Drinkability: An average lager. Nothing really sets this one apart from the countless other craft lagers out there. It certainly isn't bad; there's just nothing that stands out about it. It's definitely drinkable and certainly worth a try but not something to go out of your way for.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoyed at home.

A: Hazy golden color with a medium-size white head, which dissipated rather quickly.

S: Sweet-smelling with hints of citrus (lemon) and sweeter malts and a hint of toasty-ness. Perhaps some caramel and/or brown sugar as well. Aroma is pleasant, but not overwhelming.

T: Sweet and bready on impact, with some of the citrus flavors emerging in the end for a pleasant taste experience. Subtle aftertaste that resembles the front end -- a sweet maltiness.

M: Light body and sufficient carbonation. Unremarkable.

O: Solid, if somewhat mediocre, lager. Easily drinkable with limited after-taste, and the light body would allow for easy enjoyment with a variety of foods. Definitely not an irresistible beer, but certainly not bad.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Clear yellow with a whitish cap that fell quickly. The aroma was mild, a bit of doughy malt and faint spicy hops. Moderate bitterness, some malt and a hint of spicy hops. Light bodied and a bit dry, moderate carbonation, decent texture. Refreshing, but very mild in character.
