Not quite on point for style. Lacks the interesting malt crispness and profile. Instead the malt comes off on the sweet side here lots of caramel and sugar. Pours brown with OK head and lacing. Bottle.

Appealing dark amber color. Toasted malt with a trace of grape (brandy comes to mind). Just enough sweetness. Alcohol warms but does not burn. Great seasonal brew that compliments smoked nuts(almonds) and cheeses.

Clear copper with tan head. Aroma is dry caramel malt with hints of yeast. Flavor is toffee caramel, medium bittering. Paired nicely with chocolate cake. This is the first Long Trail beer I have ever bought but not the first I have enjoyed thanks to the mayor of long trail.

Had this on draft at the brewery and loved it. When I bought the 12 pack, it was much more hop forward than the draft. This was one my wife liked on draft, but not in the bottle. Tastes better after it sits open. Still has lingering cascade hop flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From 12 oz bottle, variety pack
Aroma: Sweet, caramel, toffee, malty
Appearance: Amber, Clear liquid, tan head
Taste: Heavy sweetness but not in bad way, light bitterness
Palate: Medium body. Good carbonation. Slight bitter finish
Overall: I have had a lot of Altbiers other than Long Trail, but this is a nice one. A bit sweet and malty, but no cloyiness. Very clean. Very easy to drink. Highly digestible. Pretty good beer to have with food. Alcohol is well masked, hard to detect that its 7%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
amber with a slight haze, cappuccino head that is fast to fade to a frothy ring. Aroma is touch of caramel, grassy lager flavor with a hint of blackberry. Body is watery-syrupy, medium weight with a delayed, medium-fine carbonation, medium-light intensity. Small burn. Flavor is sweet berry hard candy, lemongrass, and a light phenolic resin bitterness in the finish. Some caramel in the finish as it warms. A very nice alt, a bit syrupy in flavor and body - could use more dry malt character and a more present aroma. No serious flaws and a nice subtle berry contribution from the yeast, despite the cool fermentation.

Lots of malt, and lots of alcohol. That’s about it, not much more to be said.
