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.

Medium-bodied beer, it’s got a decent balance between German hops and malt, but there’s nothing standout about it.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a slight near-creamy beige head. Warmish caramel aroma. Perhaps a touch of noble hop. It is caramel/bready and has a certain bitterness. Maybe the hop is a bit citrus. Fairly tasty, and a certain amount of bitterness builds over time. I’m guessing it’s a good explication of the style.
