2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ Brewpub. This one pours a crystal clear golden color. There was almost no head on it, and there was no lacing. Like their lager, the beer is pretty much devoid of aroma. Faint malts and maybe some grassy hops. The taste is OK, but very uninspiring. There was a weak bitter finish, with some faint malts. I wouldn’t bother with this one. Order the Lager is you are just interested in a cold one and nothing else.

This was the second Legend beer that i have had to pour out because it was terrible. Really thick and a bad mouth feel. Just not anything i remotely enjoyed.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a rich golden with a tight foamy white head. Upfront, the nose is bready and grainy with just the merest hint of freshly cut grass. Tastewise, the solid malty body and lemony/grass hops perform a hearty jig on the tongue, finishing with an assertive hop bite. Dry and clean in the finish. Too strong for a classic pilsner, but a worthy strong lager.

UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Location: Draft at Capital Ale House, 11/26/10
Aroma: The nose is clean and fresh, some grass, floral notes, and caramel malts
Appearance: This beer pours a clear golden-yellow color with a small white head
Flavor: The taste is malty, nice floral sweetness, and a crisp hoppy finish
Palate: A very nice, crisp and clean pilsner with a really solid drinkability
This is a really solid pilsner. Another really nice offering from a favorite hometown brewery of mine. Legend makes some very solid beers, and this one is no expection. It was quite smooth, flavorful, clean, and drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from the Giant in Leesburg.
It pours a deep, deep gold color with a large, foamy, white head. The nose is very floral with notes of grain and honey sweetness. The taste is on the grainy side with some cereal notes, honey sweetness, and florals from the hops. The mouthfeel is medium-light with medium-high carbonation and a medium-long, bitter finish. This one seems to have all the pieces to the puzzle but can’t quite get them to fit. You get nice floral notes from noble hops but the grains overpower them and leave you with no crispness at all. A decent, abet short, attempt. Take it or leave it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This one poured a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma was really grassy, some barn, and bittering hops. Flavor was a bit of corn, grassy and musty hops, and very bitter, but not hop flavor, just bitter, much to the style for this one.
