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.

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.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a gigantic white head. The head was huge but faded fast, so the pour had to take place in multiple step additions. After fading completly the head left only a very light spotty lacing.

Smell – The smell is light and is of a bready an lighter sweet fruit/veg aromas of a apple and corn.

Taste – The taste begins of bread and caramel malt sweetness. Soon flavors of a lighter citrus nature come to the tongue. Mixed with the citrus are some flavors of an earthy taste. These flavors diminish the caramel flavor as the taste advances but a sweet corn and malty flavor takes it place. .In the end, a pleasant sweeter (for a lager) and very lightly bittered taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the lower and thinner side with a very high level of carbonation. The carbonation and body are both very good for the brew and make it quite refreshing and easy drinking.

Overall – Not too bad. A bit on the sweeter side for a lager, but refreshing and very easy drinking none the less. It has nice flavor transitions and a nice feel, which when coupled with the lighter and more refreshing body make for a good session beer.

Poured into a pint glass.

4.0 A: Crystal clear medium yellow color. Despite this not being bottle conditioned, there's a fuck ton of carbonation in this and I needed a few pours to get a full glass. Why would they carb it this much. Big foamy white head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left.

3.5 S: Fairly potent grassy and spicy hoppiness. Grainy malts with a moderate sweetness. A touch of wort-iness to this as well. Could be a tad cleaner, but overall smells good.

4.0 T: The taste has a good amount of hops in it as well. Grassy, spicy, and earthy in that order. Low bitterness. Grainy malts with a light sweetness and a lot cleaner than the nose suggested. Very nice.

3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. A bit overcarbonated, but not too much. Lightly creamy and smooth enough.

4.0 D: Solid beer. 'Nuff said.
