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.

Having had the St. George IPA on the cask, it was time to try the Legend offering. Per the (massive) beer menu, it's "dark golden in color and dry hopped to perfection." It arrived in a 20oz. English Imperial Pint glass with an amazingly thick and creamy white head that really reminded me of a nitr-tap brew. Distinct and impressive rings of lace on the glass as this one was drained. Color was indeed dark golden. Aromas were very different from what I'd expected. I was thinking I'd be able to pick up something resembling a hoppy note but all I got was a very pronounced "applesauce" aroma. I'd be curious to see what hops they used in dry-hopping this. Flavor, too, was not very influenced by the hops, IMHO. Pretty mild, and toned down by the conditioning in the cask. Quite malty-caramel sweet up front, tempered nicely by the hops. Finishes with a sweet, tangy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is nice...creamy smoothness coates the palate. I really like cask-conditioned beers and this one was easy to drink. One that I would certainly order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very good brown ale, good caramel after taste. Very easy drinking, not to filling.

Draft. Pours copper, with aroma of malt, toffee, brown sugar, hops, and cabernet. Tastes malty, rich, with some hops, brown sugar, and red wine at the finish. Nice balance and a great finish. I put this one up there with DFH Indian Brown Ale as great examples of the style.

A little lighter than normal, more of a deep auburn. Nose quite peaty, lots of malts to it, some caramel. Very nice flavor, loads of malts, lots of caramel and toffee, big peat character to it, mildly smoky as well. Quite nutty. Finish is long, with just a hint of sweetness hanging around the mouth. Quite enjoy the palate on it, good creaminess as well. One of the better browns I’ve had.

A nice light brown color. The beers smell is very standard. It is a good tasting beer that is well brewed.

Rating #33 for 2012 12oz bottle cool from a tulip glass. Aroma of butter scotch, brown sugar, oak, and spice. A red tinted dark brown with a cinnamon colored head. Taste of butter scotch, seltzer, and bread. Medium carbonation with a smooth clean finish. I have had this beer before but this time it was just better, will update rating later

This is a full tasting brown ale. When I am in the mood for drinking a Brown Ale that has a simple rich flavor and aroma then Legend Brown is my poison.

Appearance: medium amber brown, with a short, creamy light tan head. Aroma: nutty and malty, with brown sugar, cola, and molasses. Taste: as the aroma indicates. Finish: prickly and lively, with the slightly sweet and nutty flavors lasting a while. Notes: Unexpectedly great brown ale. Light and vivacious palate, sweet and nutty without being cloying. This was actually very refreshing on a hot summer day. NoVA Brewfest 2013.
