3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.
