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.

Very nice beer, found a bit of carmel, apple and some citrus flavors. A drinkable session beer.

Aurelius (4034) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2002
White head, chestnut brown alt. Very dry, nutty and woody. Thin. Decent session beer, but really nothing remarkable. A little vineous.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - NOV 30, 2002
Clear, amber colred with a decent head and lace. Nose of doughy malt, touch of caramel, earth and citrus. Sweetly malty, medium bodied with moderate carbonation that subsides, almost chewey with nice developing bitterness at the end. The sweetness seems a bit artificial but otherwise a pretty decet brew.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 6, 2002
A nice golden brew, with a medium head. Has a nice hoppy flavor, but nothing really biting about it.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 22, 2002
Bright golden color with a medium head and good lace. Sweet well-balanced aroma, slightly more hoppy. Bitter hoppy flavor with a hint of malt.

Didn’t find this one to be too complex. Better on tap than the bottle. There are better alts out there.

jcalbi (378) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 19, 2002
On tap. Amber brown in appearance with a sticky and large off white head. Slight hoppy start that finishes quite clean. Body has a rather caramelly flavor. Great when you can get it on tap but loses a lot of its luster in the bottle.

argo0 (11317) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2002
Medium-bodied beer, it’s got a decent balance between German hops and malt, but there’s nothing standout about it.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 27, 2002
(Bottled 6/19/02) Rather plain and simple. A little malty. The hops are restrained. It really does not remind me of an alt.
