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.

First had: on tap at Legend

Here's the one for people coming in and asking "What's the closest thing y'all got to Miller Lite?" Straw-yellow pour, clear, with a small cap of white bubbles that fizzled out almost completely. Weak aroma of corn sugar and light floral hops. Taste of grains, corn, lager yeast, light hops lacking any crispness or depth. Light body. Any more than a sampler is essentially undrinkable.

12oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. Pours a deep transparent gold. Lots of bubbles rising through this, feeding the 2-finger width head. Aromas of wet grains, sugar cookies, lemon rind.

Crisp, clean mouth. Easy drinking, though this actually feels a bit heavier than expected. Sweet beer right off, bready flavors, some husk, and a touch of citrus noted. There's an odd flavor I can't place. Whatever it is, it make me think twice about having many of these on hand. There's so many better clean lighter beers I could get. Probably won't revisit this one.

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.
