COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The is a pretty beer almost an amber/brown color. A well balanced beer that is great for the summer months. Unlike the porter, this is the beer that put them on the map.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2007
On draft @ Bottoms up in Richmond Va. Pours clear brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, & brown sugar. The flavor is nuts, sweetness, caramel, and brown sugar. Thin bodied, not a bad brew.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 1, 2007
22oz from Once Upon a Vine, Richmond. I am usually supremely unimpressed by browns but thought Id give this a try, as Ive usually found Legend beers to be at least enjoyable (and hey, 3 bucks and change). Nice deep brown with a modest head, I was pleased with the relatively robust body (compared to the thinness Ive come to expect from the style, fair or not) and the pleasant hop bouquet. Very crisp tasting and drinkable, with a decent bit of caramel malts for flavor. Im still disinclined to the style, but kudos to Legend!

Cobra (1100) - - JUN 23, 2007
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. Bought cold. No freshness date seen anywhere. Poured out a light, clear brown, with a minimal tan head. Lots of lacing on this beer. Aromas are pretty standard for a brown ale. Some caramel in the flavors, balanced with the hops. Pretty standard fare here. Medium mouthfeel, decent body. Not the best brown ale I ever had, nor the worst.

Va BF 07 Draft: Strange rubber and mixed nut aroma. Pours light brown, almost gold, with a light beige head and good lacing. Nice caramel and hop balance. Hop finish. Thin mouthfeel.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle Dark amber pour with thin head and no lacing. Not much aroma, but a bit of nuts. Flavor has some nuts and a bit of floral hops. Pretty smooth. Not great, but not bad.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 11, 2007
Pours a clear deep bronzy amber with a thin off white head and some light lacing. Aroma is chocolately and lots of nutty character and some light floral and tea-like hops. Good nutty toasted malt profile with light roast, some acrid black malt drynesss, and a floral herbal hop bitterness. Solid mouthfeel and finish. Good brown ale overall.

This was a pretty average brown ale. Though to be fair this was a follow up drink to the barley wine.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2006
Clear reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is very nutty with caramel notes. The beer is medium-bodied, oily, and velvety on the palate. Toward the sweet end but good balancing bitterness. I had this on tap, and from the reviews, it sounds like tap is the way to go with this one.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 23, 2006
22oz bomber from my Secret Santa (Numenor), no date. Pours a clear copper orange with a three finger light beige head. Aroma is of toasted malts and light citrus hops. Flavor is much the same with a slight addition of roasted malts. Lightly bitter finish. A bit thin bodied, moderately carbonated. Not too bad of a beer.
