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.

Looks like a nice amber ale. Caramel malt sweetness. Mild roast, finished subtly bitter. Overall a nice beer with a clean finish.

2 twelve ounce bottles poured into proper imperial pint glass. This ale presents a foamy large bubbled head with a classic amber body. I love this ale. It is very dependable. It is sturdy and well balanced. One can not go wrong in choosing this.

Bottle. Pours burgundy with thin white head that dissipates. Mild carbonation over Balt aroma. So so ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clean yet robust and complex aroma of rich malt, noble hops and restrained fruity esters. Light amber to orange-bronze to deep copper color, yet stopping short of brown. A long-lasting, medium-dry to dry, bittersweet or nutty finish reflects both the hop bitterness and malt complexity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mathieuc (1450) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
Bottle at the Willoughvale Inn / Gil’s Bar & Grill in Westmore, Vermont. Served without ceremony (and glass) so I had to improvise... Pours a light brown with a fast disappearing head, leaving you with a cola looking brew with big bubbles. Aroma is carrying fruity notes along some light caramel, again really cola-like. Taste is sweet, flavors of caramel and cereals. Body is light, texture lightly sticky. OK beer when nothing else is available, fortunately this doesn’t happen too often anymore!

Mep3222 (542) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Malty, almost a bit caramel malt like. Some roasted malt flavors. Bit of an odd cheap taste to this one, almost the odd lager funk. Not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewBoxer (2092) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Draft at American flatbread NYC. Pours a copper light brown color. Hops and malt balance but it's a very sessionable flavorful beer that's good with any meal ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jow (2238) - New York, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Big thanks to Lillian from work who brought us back beer from her weekend away. Thought I fated this before but guess not. Pours bright clear copper. Nose of hops and caramel. Tastes of buttered toast, caramel, some hop bitterness, and dried fruits. Slight oily palate with semi sweet finish.

It’s funny that I have yet to rate this. It’s a pretty decent ale. Good amber color and a fairly decent balance of malt and hops. Very drinkable, if not too exciting by current standards.

jsmerig (1277) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Pours a clear brown with a thin white head. Aroma is malty with a bready note. Taste is malt forward with a slightly tart bitterness from the hops. Not too good. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
