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->SA. Amber with lingering white head. Aroma is spicy malt. Taste is very malty, with some notes of spice and caramel. Ok.

The appearance had a light amber color with an off-white head that didn’t last too long. It left just a bit of spotty lacing. The smell had the aromas of caramel, almonds and hops. This smooth, easy drinking ale is good in all seasons. It had a good clean, crisp, and dry finish and with a slight touch of bitterness. Overall, good for its style and good for me.

Tap. Amber pour with a white lacing. Floral, wheat, caramel. Nice carbonation, slight bitterness, hop, and sour bitter finish. Not bad and easy to drink.

micmillon18 (27) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2013 Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a shaker pint. Sticky white head dissipates quickly, with about a finger’s width sitting a top the beer. Copper color. Scents of sweet malt with hops and light grassy tones. Tastes of sweet malts followed by grapefruit-like hop bitterness. Malt and light hop bitterness are present in the aftertaste. Carbonation is in check. Not a bad offering by Long Trail.

On tap at a sports bar in Waltham, Mass. Reminds me of Yuengling. Amber in color with little to no head. Not much lacing left on glass. Aroma and taste moslty roasted malts with some faint hop aroma. Overall not too bad. Would not seek out on a regular basis.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
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?

Lightrider (270) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2012
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.
