Legendary Red Ale has a very dark garnet hue, but sparkling clear, light loose head of white with tannish hues. Smell is pretty good; basic, slighty hopped malt toasted aromas, creamy caramel, very light smokey/oaky character. Tastes follows smell closely, some crips fruitiness, with a bit more of that magical black malt that really brings this beer altogether.

Very solid altbier, my first beer from GCB. Very impressed, will definitely keep this beer around as a great table red.
