COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the “Alt-biers” of Düsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival.

Bottle. Aroma is malty and earthy. Taste is malty and hoppy. A little metallic. Hop at end. Maybe a touch of caramel. Ok beer. Smooth but not much going on.

The body has good clarity and a nice medium amber color. Its head was off white in color, of average size and quickly settles down and fades to thin ring of lace. The aroma has hints of leafy, mineral like and grassy hops with some lightly toasted grain. The flavor is well balanced and delicate. Hop flavor is leafy and grassy with mild bitterness. It is in very good balance with the light bready malt. The light bitterness fades quickly and cleanly off the tongue, setting you up for the next sip. It has a light to medium body, smooth texture and average carbonation.

BierMeHoos (119) - Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is mildly nutty malts, earthiness and a hint of spice. The flavor is nutty malts, fruit and light citrus hops/bitterness in the finish. Not my favorite Long Trail beers but ok.

Very average ale. This one pours an amber but very little carbonation and no head to speak of.

tcane7 (1664) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle. Haven’t had one of these since the late 90s. Pours a clean amber with decent, diminishing beige head and big, thick rings of lace. Aroma is caramel, brown malts and fruity esters. Fruity flavors, very little hop bitterness but a harshness to the finish. Decent flavor, malty with some fruity esters

bellco33 (363) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - MAY 1, 2014
On tap at Catsup and Mustard: This was one of my favorite "craft beers" that got me into beer. Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, earth. Taste is mildly sweet with a nice hop bite at the end. Medium body, good carbonation, clean finish. This is a really solid amber ale and I don’t know how it has this low of a rating.

Aroma is mildly nutty malts, earthiness and a hint of spice. The flavor is nutty malts, fruit and light citrus hops/bitterness in the finish.
