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.

Had this a few times on tap and in bottle at Killington. Pretty good, often the best of what was available. Goes well with food.

Content amber color with a lasting head, slightly sweet taste without alotta hop. Needs more body, seemed watery and lacked any punch, though it was a good thirst quencher this summer.

Sample @ brewery. Very light amber ale. Very carbonated as well. The brewer says "moderate hop bitterness". To me, it's more like moderate hop sourness. No sweetness at all and no love for this stuff either. The brewery is antiseptic without tours, just a few dirty windows to look into. Puh-lease.

Amber with medium head. Medium bodied, hoppy and very refreshing. A good sociable ale.

Apricot hopps nose. Amber, no head. Light hoppy taste. Reminds Gary on a Canadian beer :) = maybe because Vermont is so close to Canada :)

comes in a 12 oz long neck..nice ,simple water colour on tha label the beer pours a nice light brown almost amber in colour..its also crystal clear..there was a small white head that went down fast to a good lace. I can smell the malts very well..plus a frsh pine sort of aroma ( not nasty, intrigueing). Ah nice tasting Alt we have here , starts sweet, then gives way to a velvety creamyness ( like unsalted butter)..then the hops appear..again the piney flavour appears as an aftertaste. I like the feel on the palate the contrast between the sweetness , then the creamyness..then the bitter after taste. Very drinkable Alt beer..Im beginning to like this rare style..maybe I should make a trip to Dusseldorf one of these days.

Pours a nice clear copper with minimal head. I don't smell much, a little floral hoppiness maybe. I taste hops, maybe a little fruitiness to end. Not disturbing to drink, but really nothing going on here.
