Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with a large (2-3 finger) foamy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was light of roasted cereal malts and a lightly sweet leathery yeast with hints of milk chocolate, coffee and a touch of molasses. The taste was mildly sweet with just a hint of chocolate and a pinch of molasses from the onset and finished with a slightly bitter chocolate-coffee flavor that lasted an average amount of time after the swallow. Mouthfeel was somewhere between light and medium in body and a bit watery in texture with a mild carbonation. Overall a mild tasting and well balanced Brown Ale that possessed an excellent drinkability.

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.

Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, red-hued brown color with off-white head. Aroma notes of light roasted malt sweetness, some nuttiness and faint coffee. Taste adds caramel, molasses and bread. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation, sticky with light roast finish. Nice brown ale.
