BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Legend Brewing Co.

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.

It's better on-tap than out of the bottle, but it still isn't the best ale I've had by a long shot. Still, I'd order it again if I absolutely had to drink something I knew was decent, and if I wasn't in the mood for untested beers.

the beer is edium brown color, good head retention. Bready malt aroma. Good balanced flavor, not too sweet. Medium bodied, easy drinking.
