Good brown ale that converted my son who is not usually a fan. Tasty with nice aftertaste. Looks good and tastes good. Mellow beer that goes well with a meal. Recommend for cooler days and nights.

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, red-hued brown color with off-white head. Aroma notes of light roasted malt sweetness, some nuttiness and faint coffee. Taste adds caramel, molasses and bread. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky with light roast finish. Nice brown ale.

Large mug off the tap, Aroma- Has a strong malts aroma and maybe a slight coffee aroma at the edges. Appearance- This beer is a dark brown color with red highlights when viewed through the bars neon!! Legend Brown Ale has a white head Taste- Has a really good malt flavor that I didn’t expect. It went down really smooth. Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with a low carbonation with an oily feel. Overall- A really good beer from Legend. I will definitely drink this again.

16oz draft 1/21/15 (Sheraton Norfolk)-Pours brown with a small head. Aroma of caramel, malt, and toffee. Taste is the same with a bit more sweetness. This medium bodied brew is well balanced and tasty.

This one is sweet and tasty but not really a brown to me. Caramel i think really overwhelms this one.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Rich deep brown coloured body with a nice tan head - dense haze of brown as well, about 80% opaque. Aroma of rich malt, molasses, sugars and even bit of light fruit - very nice for the style. Medium-bodied; Rich roasted malt flavours show through with hints of earth, but a lot of sugars, caramel, toffee and especially molasses - very nice with the sweet and complex flavours at the end. Aftertaste shows some subdued complexity of malts along with a touch of alcohol notes, but the real flavour is in the sugar - nice! Overall, a much better beer than I was expecting and rich in flavours and in texture - a good beer for the style for sure. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Costco in Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia on 16-July-2014 for US$3,59 sampled after a hockey game in Washington.

Nutty and sweet. Beautiful dark but clear brown. Very thin head. Solid brown ale. Thanks Erin for helping me cross off Virginia. Still need the Dakotas and Connecticut.

Served in pint glass, dark reddish brown with thin head. Little aroma, mild taste, deceptive ABV. Clean finish, easy to drink. But still a non-distinctive beer within its style, lots of better competitors.
