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.

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

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

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.

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.

Berard (447) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours burgundy with thin white head that dissipates. Mild carbonation over Balt aroma. So so ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

quiksurf (7) - - FEB 14, 2014 does not count
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 (2082) - 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 (840) - 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
