4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2004 Updated 8/29/04 - Clear golden body topped by a dense white head. Lacing is excellent. Big grassy hop aroma, smells a little bit like their non-traditional IPA. Very clean and crisp flavor profile, grassy hops are well-balanced by just enough malty sweetness. Medium bodied. Not exactly a traditional pils but a wonderful beer regardless. These guys know what they are doing.

To get it over with right up front, this is a marvelous pilsner. Bright gold, huge head, puffy and creamy. Smells crisp and a bit hoppy, some sweetness. Flavor has a great initial fruity burst, excellent hops for a good bite, malts at the finish have a beautiful toasty, vaguely nutty finish. Crisp. Really good stuff, one of the best pilsners I’ve ever run into.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is a little faint, but is of noble hops, followed by soft malt. Crystal clear, pure gold is color, with a nice dense, white head. Flavor is high IBU hops up front (spicy saaz notes in thier?), followed by a firm, but gentle malt character. Tail is slowly fading hops. Great traditional lager beer!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2005 Deep gold yellow color, beautiful white head that slowly subsides, nice lacing. Soft malts give way to a surprisingly earthy hoppiness, almost like some Goldings snuck into the kettle. Although not quite Czech in nature, a very tasty beer.

750 ml bomber. I was very impressed with this pilsner. Poured gold with good white head. Aroma of malt, hops, some honey, and slight chardonnay. Tastes malty, with a nice hit of honey, slight hops, and crisp smoothness at the finish. This is an excellent pils. I have been very impressed with all the Legend beers that I have tried.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2005 Just like other Legend Beers, the pilsener is big and hoppy. This extremely crisp beer is a bit lighter than their IPA, but at ~6% it holds its own in bigness. Great aromas and wonderful crispness make this beer a pleasure to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 Picture perfect pour - deep golden with a thick white head. The second half of the bomber shows tons of tiny floating particles. Aroma is herbal, floral and grassy. There’s also a hint of sourness in the nose. The taste also includes the qualities in the aroma plus chech saaz hops, grains, lemon and some sweet maltiness. Bitter bite on the back end which lingers. Mouthfeel is great on this one - very smooth and creamy, not as much carbonation as in other pilsners. Great lacework and head retention. Recommended.

Old Dominion Brew Fest 2005. Dam, not you’re average Pilsner. Tons of fruit tons, especially Apricots. Nicely done.

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.

Thanks to Secret Santa for this one!
Poured into a Pilsner glass, this produced a tall head of white that stayed for a considerable time, fed from below by multiple microscopic bubble streams through a clear golden beer.
Malty aroma that carries some bread and honey and flowery hops.
Smooth and sweet in the beginning to end a bit dry with some nice hop bitterness to it. Very nice.
