3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Total Wine, Fairfax: Pours a copper colour with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is not that powerful: light hoppage, with a hefty malt backbone. Upon tasting it, the malts take first whistle and provide most of this beers oomph. This is not to say that the beer is unbalanced towards malts, but rather that the beer does not have a hearty hoppy kick. All in all, this is an OK, but not a very good APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours golden with small fizzy white head. Nose is pretty weak- light earthy hops, some citrus, grainy malts. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Much better than the IPA for some reason. Iím guessing it was fresher.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Perhaps just the sampling glasses, but all the Legend beers Iíve tried lack a substantial aroma. This one pours light amber with a tiny wispy white head. Nice mellow carbonation. Flavor is semi sweet caramel malt with a fruity hop character. Balanced but one dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Toasty malt with backgroud caramel and citrus, very slight peach and butterscotch.
Ap: Clear gold-amber - small slightly-off-white head with good retention.
T: Substantial orange and grapefruit up front, with a long and firm bitterness that follows to a clean and malty finish.
P: Medium body with medium carbonation, finishes dry.
O: This is really a nice pale ale - assertive and pleasant hop flavor and bitterness, plus some good malt character - beautifully simple.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, dark copper color with golden orange hues and a 1.5 finger frothy white head that has pretty good retention, only slowly fading into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Slightly earthy aroma with hints of grassy hops and straw balanced by sweet malt and subtle light fruit notes. Slightly toasty with hints of caramel and biscuit.
Medium bodied with some bitter earthy hops up front that linger over a sweet malt backbone into a lingering dry finish. Thereís a dry earthy/soil like hop presence with a resinous pine character. This is countered by the sweeter malt notes with hints of caramel and biscuit. Iím picking up some faint apricot sweetness toward the end.
