2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden amber with thin white lacing. The aroma is musky and a little soapy, but it may just be the glass. Mild malt on the palate with basement and musk flavors. Not loving it...hope my view is not unfairly skewed by the glass?

Bottle into a goblet. Aroma is that of hop and grass. Pour is a light copper with a nice white head. Taste is a nice bitter hop grass. Finish is a micro bitter. A nice ale.

LONG TRAIL ALE
Pours a coppery meringue, into pint glass, then an explosive, off-white head greets the drinker, three-to-four fingers in length. Smells and tastes of tin, caraway seeds, oxidation and sweat… its aftertaste is pure lawn trimmings with onion skins, some citrus and brass. Meh…

Copper colored, thin head that quickly dissipated. A nice, strong malty smell to it. The sweet malt is the first flavor, then mild bitter, grapefruit and a solid bitter ending. It works well together. Medium body, moderate carbonation.

On tap in a shaker. Pours amber with a lacy head. Aroma of pale and light caramel malts plus some floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. A good beer for the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber body with a one finger frothy beige head that had pretty decent retention compared to the other Long Trail beers I’ve had. The nose is lightly fruity with a bit of husky grain and toasted malt. The flavor is a bit bland, toasted malt, some light ale yeast fruitiness, a bit of light bitterness on the finish. Nothing stands out, the generic name they gave this really epitomizes the generic character of the beer itself. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Some lingering husky grains. Not terrible, but certainly nothing that stands out at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark Copper color, with a big foamy White head. Looks dark like a "Lager" and not an "Ale". Nice foamy head lasts along time, but has little to no lacing down inside of glass. Has light carbonation that lasts until last sip. Aroma is of hops, caramel, nuts, and doughy bread. Taste is mostly hoppy, and a little sweet like caramel. Hoppy taste is good, BUT a little light and thin. But you have to remember, you are drinking an "Ale", and not a "Lager", but it’s hard to remember this when drinking this beer, because of it’s dark Copper color! But not bad at all for a light Ale!
