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.

Malty taste, but with a complex (probably because I can’t really explain it) finish. An old favorite of mine.

Rating 500 for the beer - draft - nose is creamy malts if that makes any sense to you because it does to me. Smells like a cream ale that bas biscuits in it. Sip adds grass. I could go for a liter of this. Light and not boring.

Golden clear and color very little carbonation Light head with some lacing. Smells very much like a lager or an Oktoberfest. The taste is also a lager like Crispness with a strong malt backbone. Does not seem to fit the profile of an amber. It tastes much more like a lager or lighter type beer. Not good compared to Amber ales..

Onslow (1318) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear light brown brew with very light off white head. One finger of head seems to linger on forever. Aroma dominated by malts - caramel but some very light toast - some light crisp hoppy notes. Taste is light caramel and very light toast up front, a little salt,sweet malts in the middle and then finishes with a mid astringent hoppiness, some notes of greet fruit and tart hops. Very good mouthfeel. Not complex or extreme in any aspect but solidly tasty and enjoyable.

Pours almost brown with a foamy tan head that lingers. Nose is malty. Taste is balanced: fresh malty sweetness and a mild hop bite. Decent brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Orange-amber, clear, low thick head. Malty, minerally, earthy nose. Somewhat faint, but authentic. Caramel. Medium rich malt flavor, some caramel and fruits, earthy, grassy hops, decent bitterness with clean, peppery finish. Decent alt, nothing special.

Long trail ale is an average beer. When pouring the beer I thought the color looked great but the beer lacked an aroma and the taste was good without being to complex. I would recommend this beer to someone who is just beginning to get into micro brews as this is not that complex.

Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: 8-oz. glass From: My aunt Jenny Price: $2 Purchased: N/A Consumed: July 8, 2015 Misc.: Born on Feb. 13, 2015 Poured a copper, caramel, clear color with two fingers of khaki tan, frothy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Below average lacing on the sides. Average retention. (Sight - 3.50) Smelled caramel, Munich, nuts, light roasty malts, buttery malts, faint hazelnut or maybe even maple syrup? More Oktoberfest than anything else. (Smell - 3.50) Tasted a little more zip than the nose. Got German Munich malts, roasty malts, buttery malts, caramel, nuts and light hazelnut. (Taste - 3.63) Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Roasty finish. (Feel - 3.75) I may have slightly overrated this, but it wasn’t horrible. Not bad. (Overall - 3.63) 3.61 82 B
