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.

Enjoyed my first-ever Legend bier.... This Brown (currently at 6.0%) has an attractive amber color, a little lace, and a fine, creamy tan head. Nose consisted of some caramel and malty notes....nice! Pleasant mouthfeel and good flavors abound. Some of the caramel and roasted malts show up nicely, and the hops (Tettnang & Mt Hood) make a brief cameo at the finish. Easy drinking!
