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.

Bierkrug (2133) - - MAY 21, 2014
355 ml bottle in Vienna, VA. Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is molasses, caramel, bread, malty notes. Its pretty light, and the taste is exactly like the aroma, very drinkable, but nothing really stands out to me about this beer. Palate is smooth.

Bottle. Lightly sweet, toasty nutty malt aroma. Clear chestnut with a large off-white head, suspended flocculation. Nutty toasty caramel malt flavor. Body on the light side of medium, average carbonation.

nearbeer (3849) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2014
Pint on tap at Norfolk Tap Room. Clear darkish copper brown with a small topping of cream. Mild aroma of dry cocoa, toast and a touch of citrus. Flavor is toasted nut, caramel, cocoa and a touch of citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Nice brown color and a relatively easy to drink brown ale. Not the most interesting or strong aroma.

solidfunk (4493) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Not quite so legendary. Pours clear brown with some fizzy initial head and not much lacing. Mostly just some light hops here, can’t get much of a sense of the malt here. Finishes with light sweetness. Tap at Big Board.

Shanebrews (194) - Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Legend Brown Ale is solid if not exceptional. The aroma is the richest part of the brew. The appearance is brown but with the viscosity and head of something like a Yuengling. The taste is malty and balanced but thin in the finish. This beer pairs well with bar foods.

RedSox2004 (1330) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Medium brown/amber with a slight haze, one-finger off-white head that dissipated to a nice solid film and left nice lace. Aromas of strong caramel malt, ripe fruit and nuttiness. Flavor follows, with a touch of caramel malt up front, some generic fruitiness and then nuttiness toward the back end. Lighter to medium body, prockly carbonation, soft mouthfeel and a dry finish.

Patrickctenchi (4120) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Cloudy brown with a puffy, cream head. Caramel, light chocolate aroma. Taste is caramel malt, mild nuts, creamy. A very decent, moderate brown ale. Satisfying and simple. Very solid.

kidobutai (424) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Nice appearance, dark brown but still translucent, nice in the light. Healthy head, but a little sudsy. Nutty sweet aroma, molasses flavor, a bit carbonated.
