Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our most popular beer, Legend's is a full bodied version of a British Brown Ale. Expect a rich, malt-forward brew with a beautiful mahogany tone. Generous amounts of specialty malts bring flavors of sweet caramel, toasted nuts, coffee, and molasses, all perfectly balanced by a steady but cautious hop dryness. Fruity undertones provided by our house yeast strain bring the final flavor element to round out this world class ale.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a beautiful dark brown color, with a slight head of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the beer in wispy clouds.

Aroma: Very malty and bready, with some good nuttiness there too. I get some slight chocolate notes too as well as some molasses. Very pleasant.

Taste: Like the aroma, the beer is very malty and nutty with some pleasing sweetness of toffee and/or molasses. The beer finishes with some nicely balanced hops bitterness to round everything out.

Mouthfeel: Medium with a slight chewiness. There is some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds, and with an ABV of 6.4%, there’s just the slightest hint of alcohol on the palate, but not much

Overall: I was very impressed with this brown ale. Nicely balanced, very tasty and very drinkable. I’ll certainly pick up a few more of these.
