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.

Pours dark straw/orangish, with some malt and slight hops. Tastes malty, with finishing slight hops, and a decent crisp malt at the finish.

I found that many of the ale’s brewed in the northeast have a very similar feel and taste. This one is no exception and I prefer other local ale’s to this one.

Nice full red coloring, but everything else is very average. Reminded me of the sam adams boston ale, but with a bit less going for it. You can drink this one easily, as it goes down smooth, but then again, so does bud light, right?

Dorwart (2449) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Thin but frothy head with decent lacing and low carbonation. Malty bready aroma with a bit of hops. Color is a medium golden orange. Soft mouth feel. More bread/dough and malts and a bit of toasty grains. Finish is slightly dry and a little bitter. The hops are really pronounced at the finish. A decent altbier.

Had this last weekend at home in VT. Plentiful here, and a decent beer but definitely not amazing. As VTHopHead says, it does not match up to the other beers from VT. Doesn’t really taste like an Altbier.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - APR 25, 2004
A common beer in these parts and an early leader in the "micros" from VT, but it does not match up to the better beers being produced in VT now. This is a drinkable beer, but I will choose another unless given not other alternative.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - APR 19, 2004
A wonderful aroma. Gives a very mountain-y feel, rich with good color. Taste is solid, but not terribly improvisational.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - APR 17, 2004
This beer is not impressive at all. There is no taste to it and the beer looks very dull. It's a waste of time.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2004
Sweet mild malt aroma. Clear golden orange colour with generous off-white head that lasts nicely. Sweet malty flavour balanced nicely by the hops. Mouthfeel a bit on the thin side but not inappropriate for style. Enjoyable, but simple. Bottle.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2004
Light amber w/ an almost not existant off white head. Malty thin aroma; clean but unexciting, lighlty toasty as it warms. Thin flavor as with the aroma, well balanced w/a light bitterness in the finish, green apple flavor gets stronger as it warms. Light bodied but not watery, slight prickly mouthfeel. Not at all impressed with this one, not bad, but very unexciting.
