Bottle. Pours murky dark, reddish brown with thick, lasting, off-white head. Aroma. Sweet baked bean-like aroma of brown sugar. Brown-sugary sweetness, with molasses and flavors and gooeyness and a slight burnt-caramel aftertaste. Very little hops, resulting in a lingering sticky sugariness. Malty flavors are tasty, but lacks any semblance of hops for balance.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2017 Draft. It poured a cola brown color with a thin beige head. It had a nutty aroma and sweet taste. A very nice brown ale.

Our go to beer. Legend has been in Richmond for a long time before Richmond expanded to 17 area breweries and brew pubs. Local beer. Malts not hops ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Currently my 6th favorite beer is this English Brown Ale brewed in Richmond, VA. I’ve only had it in a bottle, so I look forward to trying it on Draft;)

Draft at Yard House-Springfield. Normal looking pour, faint aroma, then goes horribly wrong in the taste. Metallic bitterness, cola sweetness. Not sure what this is supposed to be, but not very good. No drains nearby....

Pours dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma of malts and brown sugar. Taste is smooth, sweet, and very drinkable. A nice brown ale to quaff! Thumbs up for sure! Thanks Andy!

Pours clear brown with a quickly-dissipating off-white head. Looks nice enough, though the aromas and flavors are best described as light - light caramel and nutty aromas, similar light flavors with a touch of sweetness. Hints of hops on the finish. Very drinkable, balanced style.

bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear dark brown color, smooth 1" beige head, streaks of lace. Taste is nutty malt that adds light carbonation and hops on the swallow. Very simple, not as sweet as one might expect. but not hoppy, either. Meh.

Good brown ale that converted my son who is not usually a fan. Tasty with nice aftertaste. Looks good and tastes good. Mellow beer that goes well with a meal. Recommend for cooler days and nights.

Pint at Fred’s restaurant Franklin VA. Bol aroma, sweet, earty caramel, clean dark brown color,small head and little lace, sweet flavor. Medium body thin smooth mouthfeel. Sweet finish. It’s fine. Classic brown.
