(22 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with jasonp, thanks Jason!) The aroma is quite musty, lightly hoppy, citrusy sour, but kind of chemical, like something I might buy at Home Depot. The flavor is fairly sour, very lemony, lightly hoppy, but lacking much, if any, maltiness or sweetness. Light-to-medium body with a well-carbonated palate. Pale golden, kind of yellow in color, fully clear in appearance, with a hectic, but massive display of rapidly rising carbonation bubbles. Off-white head builds an amusing top hat looking adornment atop a very large and bubbly head. Plenty of globs of foam are left on the glass. Second disappointing Legend beer in a row.

Pours a clear bright golden with a frothy white head. Aroma of light caramel malt, some floral grassiness and noble hops. Starts lightly pale malty and dry with a touch of tartness before a crisp saaz-hoppy, dry finish. Very smooth and enjoyable, a nice pilsener. Thanks Kinz!

thanks to kinz (i think?) for this brew.the pils poured a semi-murky yellow with a nice white head.straw,wheat,and that "pale" pils smell all made up the aroma.i was actually very surprised at the tatse and mouthfeel.it wasnt light and watered down at all.the mouthfeel was medium,and the flavor was full of hay,wheat,malts,and hops.this is a very nice treat,and a great light brew. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2005
Pours golden with a white and fluffy lite head. Nice looking bubbles in there. Has a bit of a nutty aroma and possibly rubber, stinky. The immediate taste is sweet (marshmallow perhaps) and malty but moves to a toasted grain and a hop finish that is clean and lightly piney (nutshell also). Body is acceptable to the style. I found it better in many ways than a macro pils, but still not my favorite. TheBeerGod (6208) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Bottled. Pours translucent gold with a medium frothy white head. Nose is lemony and grassy with lighter maltiness. Light bread notes as well. Taste is slightly bitter with grassy hops, more malt, sourdough bread and light citrus. Body is full and refreshing. Finishes with more citrus, but an odd rubbery note in amongst the grass and hops. Good beer nonetheless.

Light golden color. Sweet lemon flavor with some bitterness in the background. Crisp and refreshing. This is good, but nothing too special. But, then again i don’t think I have ever had a pilsner that was too intrigueing. I’d say legends did about the best is possible with this style. PeterA (342) - EL SALVADOR - OCT 13, 2004
Faint aroma, but what’s there is fruity and sweet. The appearance is good, a golden color with a white head. The hops in the flavor are pleasantly mild. Mouthfeel is good, not too sticky. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. This is a pleasant well balanced beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Clear apple juice body topped by medium white head. Aroma is mild sweet, biscuit, light honey, grassy. Taste is mild sweet, fruity, grassy, light honey. Light-medium body, with refreshing crispness. Another fine beer from Legend. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - OCT 10, 2004
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. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Pours yellow/gold. Floral aroma, with hops and corn as well. Malt and hops in the flavor, with light to medium body that has a bite. Pretty good...
