3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 22 into a tulip. Beautiful amber liquid with a pillowy white head. Head stays around for a few moments and leaves a lacing behind. Sweet in the nose with a bit of the California Common yeastiness coming through. Flavors of toffee and caramelized sugars. Finishes with a bit of earthiness and a little alcoholic warmth. Overall a rather tasty beverage.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear copper orange brown, slight, lasting head. Aroma is is lightly earthy hops, faint caramel accented malts. Malt backbone moves into a pleasantly earthy and slightly minty hop finish. Good balancing bitterness. Haven’t said this about a Legend beer in a while, but it just struck me as being quite well crafted. Nicely done. Big for a Cali, but within the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz Bomber from Tom Leonard’s This is one of the best beers I seen with a deep clear amber color 1/2 inch white head. Some lacing and good head retention. In the bouquest, a hint of caramel threads together with american hops. You detect toasted grains and balanced caramel malts. I like the balanced bitterness with the sweet caramel malts. This is like a medium body ale with average carbonation. The dry, clean finish has you wanting more. Great overall beer.
