Bottle courtesy of alexanderj, shared with kleyland. Pours a clear, gold color. Large, fluffy white head. Pretty good aroma, tons of bready malt. Flavor is ok. Some citrus notes with buttered biscuits. Not my favorite style, but a nice beer out of VA.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is skunky and feety grain. Gold color, thick white head. Sweet corn taste, grass on the palate. Much too sweet and hopless. Not typical of the brewer’s ability.

dark appearance for a pilsner with a very nice thick white head. mild carbonation and flawlessly clear. flavor does not have that classic pilsner malt flavor but does have the nice subtle hop character. an interesting version

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Legend Brewing in Richmond. Clear gold under a small white head, but decent lace. Grainy aroma, some sweetness, and some grassy notes. Light to medium body and carbonation, clean on the palate. Refreshingly bitter over a light malty background, but a littel soapiness in the dry finish. Went well with the lunch that I had.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a rich golden yellow with medium white head. Aroma was really good for the style; lemon, yeast, butter and grass. Flavor was of buttered biscuit, grass, lemon/citrus. Some sweetness and good hop bitterness at the end. Another quality offering from Legend.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Visually the same as the lager - clear, medium-light gold, fluffy small white head. Very light aroma, lightly malty. Suggestive that the beer would compliment food. Very slightly herbal. Very bright and tangy, kolsch-like flvaor. Citrus and biscuity. Residual and building hopping that overstays its welcome a bit. Does OK.

Clear, bright gold appearance with a large white head and nice lacing. Toasty malt, herbal hop aroma with a mild grassy quality. Sweet malt taste with a touch of honey. More bitter and hoppier as it finishes. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. A very well constructed pils.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. Bought cold. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep yellow color, with a minimal white head. Faded quickly to a thin ring of foam around the rim. Aromas are of yeasty bread, pils malts, earthy hops. Flavors are of pilsner malts, some yeasty character as well. Decent body, medium mouthfeel. Good take on the style, even if it’s a little too dark.
