I’m just gonna say it – Legend’s Oktoberfest has been my all-time favorite Oktoberfest of the season (St. George came in a close second!) It’s big and bold with loads of flavor – really enjoyable. Makes me think about eating brats and busting out the Lederhosen.
The beer is a deep amber color with HUGE head on the pour and settles into a nice layer of fluff.
The aroma brings to mind toasted malt with subtle spices. The flavor is very powerful and earthy – really toasted with no bitterness at all. The toastiness lingers and leaves a residual warmth. It has a really nice mouthfeel coating the inside of the mouth.
While this is definitely a “fall” beer, all I could think about was drinking it with a meatloaf sandwich (which I will do this weekend!)
Legend is brewed out of Richmond, VA, is somewhat limited distribution so if you see the Oktoberfest in your local beer store be sure to pick it up. You’ll be glad you did!
