This beer was a huge disappointment. I’m a fan of long trail, but this beer misses the mark badly. Missing all the qualities of a good brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear deep amber/brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is carmely with dry leaves...a bit of earthy bitterness. Flavor follows suit...tastes like a seasonal fall beer...a bit of nuttiness as well. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/nutty with some toffee.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Khyber Pass. Clear orange brown. Fizzy white head. Soft sweet sugar malt notes. Does not seem to fall into an easy category. Well blended dark sugary water. Decent palate for so thin a brew. Pleasant, but more like a tea than a beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. I love the story of this beer...unfortunately I did not like the beer as much as the story. Light mahogany with a biege head. Little thin, sweet and slightly roasted malts, nuts, caramel. Mild body and moderate carbonation - somewhat sweet but then a bit of bitterness - do not like the mouthfeel.

Draft. Amber with an off white head. Sweet toffee malts, with lighter off buttery notes. Long Trail is a good brewery; this is not a good beer.
