2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle. Clear amber color with a thin tan head that does not last. Aroma is malty with some sweetness and caremel. Taste is slightly sweet with plenty of caramel. Finishes smooth. Creamy mouthfeel. I had to rerate this after finishing the bomber. Overall the malt profile seemed slightly cloying to me. I have had better Octoberfests from this brewery in the past.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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, I think?

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.
