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.

On tap @ the stress Free Moose in Greenville, ME. Pours a clear amber, so light it's almost gold. Aromas are faint, a little malt perhaps. Taste is heavy on the malt side, a little bile, and tinny. Fairly thin with a cloying bile-like aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
