Having had the St. George IPA on the cask, it was time to try the Legend offering. Per the (massive) beer menu, it's "dark golden in color and dry hopped to perfection."
It arrived in a 20oz. English Imperial Pint glass with an amazingly thick and creamy white head that really reminded me of a nitr-tap brew. Distinct and impressive rings of lace on the glass as this one was drained. Color was indeed dark golden. Aromas were very different from what I'd expected. I was thinking I'd be able to pick up something resembling a hoppy note but all I got was a very pronounced "applesauce" aroma. I'd be curious to see what hops they used in dry-hopping this. Flavor, too, was not very influenced by the hops, IMHO. Pretty mild, and toned down by the conditioning in the cask. Quite malty-caramel sweet up front, tempered nicely by the hops. Finishes with a sweet, tangy aftertaste. Mouthfeel is nice...creamy smoothness coates the palate. I really like cask-conditioned beers and this one was easy to drink. One that I would certainly order again.

Large mug off the tap,
Aroma- Has a strong malts aroma and maybe a slight coffee aroma at the edges.
Appearance- This beer is a dark brown color with red highlights when viewed through the bars neon!! Legend Brown Ale has a white head
Taste- Has a really good malt flavor that I didn’t expect. It went down really smooth.
Palate- This is a medium bodied beer with a low carbonation with an oily feel.
Overall- A really good beer from Legend. I will definitely drink this again. BigRigg120 (1) - , Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2010 does not count
Very good brown ale, good caramel after taste. Very easy drinking, not to filling. Spiceboy (12) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2017
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. Pours copper, with aroma of malt, toffee, brown sugar, hops, and cabernet. Tastes malty, rich, with some hops, brown sugar, and red wine at the finish. Nice balance and a great finish. I put this one up there with DFH Indian Brown Ale as great examples of the style. MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 31, 2004
A little lighter than normal, more of a deep auburn. Nose quite peaty, lots of malts to it, some caramel. Very nice flavor, loads of malts, lots of caramel and toffee, big peat character to it, mildly smoky as well. Quite nutty. Finish is long, with just a hint of sweetness hanging around the mouth. Quite enjoy the palate on it, good creaminess as well. One of the better browns I’ve had. mike5326 (1754) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2010
A nice light brown color. The beers smell is very standard. It is a good tasting beer that is well brewed. Hokeman07 (15) - Roanoke, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2012
This beer is a fantastic brown ale that I have turned in to my regular beer of choice now that it is virtually available everywhere in Richmond

12oz bottle cool from a tulip glass. Aroma of butter scotch, brown sugar, oak, and spice. A red tinted dark brown with a cinnamon colored head. Taste of butter scotch, seltzer, and bread. Medium carbonation with a smooth clean finish. I have had this beer before but this time it was just better, will update rating later
