duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Bottle. slightly sour, maybe it was past its best??? Gristy malt and resiny hops, Slightly sour bitterness, made me think it was either infected or it was old. An odd one.

maeib (8664) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A murky amber coloured beer with a puddly white head. The aroma is sweet and floral, almost herbal in a way. The taste is over-sharp and over bitter. Not very good and possibly infected?

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle at Chris’. Over carbonated beer. Slightly stale tasting, sour and overbitter. Not one of the better APAs.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours gold-amber with a large head. Decent lacing. Very good piney hop aroma, backed by bready malts and light caramel. Interestingly, the hops hit you from the get-go—piney and citrusy. The malt flavors are barely perceptible, but there is some toffee in the aftertaste. I guess all Legend beers are either really, really bad or pretty damned good.

Terminus (3231) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - AUG 16, 2005
bottle-thanks to whaleman for sharing this one at the tasting at bills this weekend. pours bright orange with a sudsy 1/2 inch white head. I think this beer looks pretty nice. bright orange and tangerine hop flavors with not much of a malt base here. pretty citric. I must agree with whaleman, how the flavors of the hops and carbonation meld tends to leand towards oxidization. light grainyness and metallic notes in the finish. vigerous carbonation again sugests oxidization. very dry finish from all the citric hop notes. no diacytl at least, but definatly still not a great pale.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Bottle. Clear, metallic-orange body with a big, sudsy off-white head. Aroma is dominated by tropical and citrus hops. Flavor of sweet, fruity hops with some suggestion of oxidation. Comes across mostly dry and bitter. Sudsy mouthfeel. Mostly just a hop vehicle without much depth of character. Legend bottles continue to disappoint me.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2005
05 OD Beerfest - Deep amberish, creamy white head. Grapefruit , toasty caramel with lighter citrus tones in the nose. Semi-bitter up front, with a lasting toasty caramel and toffee backbone. Nice balance. Lighter side of medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying bitter-sweet finish. Nice stuff...
