Beer Tasting: Legacy Hedonism

This is a red ale from Legacy Brewing in Reading, PA. This beer was sampled on draft at Flanigan's Boathouse in Malvern, PA. Legacy has created quite a stir with this beer, especially in the packaging and marketing of it. We're sure you already know what we mean by saying that. Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability.

Appearance Adam: dark amber orange with thin head of islands Bryan: solid copper; tinge of orange; lumpy remnants of the head stick around for a while Smell Adam: home brew, grassy, hops with whisky barrel nose present; Bryan: citrusy, fresh hops Taste Adam: whisky malt sweet Bryan: somewhat bitter (think between a pale ale and IPA) Mouthfeel Adam: coating Bryan: consistent; a bit carbonated, lively throughout Drinkability Adam: nothing to stop me Bryan: a good drinking beer; not complicated Seconds? Adam: yes Bryan: just one more would be enough; not interesting enough to drink all night
