3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark amber copper pour with small faint ring of clearish head. Not as agressively hopped as the bluemountain, and not as vegetal either. Sweet caramel malty nose and flavor. Hint of marshmallows and candicorns in the background. Toffee. Ever so slight noble hop bitterness on the finish. Pretty decent american attempt at the style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a deep copper color with a light haze. It’s head is creamy long lasting and makes some nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: The aroma has a sweet toasted bread character with some dried leafy hops.
Taste / Palate: It has a mild malty sweetness with a dark bready character through out. I also get some mild cooed vegetable notes in the background. The finish has very mild hop bitterness and dry leafy flavor notes. The carbonation and palate smooth and creamy.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2014 On draft. Strong flavors of caramel and spice, without being overpoweringly sweet. A little bit of toast or cracker as well. Finishes dry, very dry. Best of the style I’ve had in the region, maybe up there with Victory, Great Lakes and the slightly unusual Urban Chestnut version-ish as the best American take on the style I’ve had.

10/9/2011. 22 oz. bottle. Pours copper color with an off-white head. Sweet malty aromas with caramel and light fruit. Flavors are a bit sweet throughout and not a lot of hops on the finish. Good example of the style.

Perfect seasonal brew. Color is amber red. Smells of honey, with a taste of Mellon, brown sugar and honey slightly toasted with nuts. Very good Legend beer.

12oz bottle pours a transparent copper amber with some creamy, slightly off white head. Smells very malty, cracker, grist, yeast, orange, bread crust. Flavor is malty, cracker, baked biscuit, a little root beer, some roasted parsnips, yeast. Smells and tastes like an altbier. Creamy finish. Decent, but not true to style.
