One bottle received in a trade with JB. DArk brown with almost no head. Somewhat smooth with a slightly sweet malty flavor. Bitter ending I did not enjoy.

Bear American Gothic? A fine easy drinking ale. Nothing remarkable, but a good session.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 24, 2005
White head, very bubbly with a body that is deep ruby in color. The beer is thicker than an ale, but not stout-like. A citrus flowery flavor greets the pallet that also offers a vague coffee ending. Very subtle hops quality.

Pours a rich brown. Sweet smelling, nicely balanced. Tasted autumnal and woodsy - almost like wet fallen leaves. Nice job.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Pours deep brown mahogany clear body with large frothy tan head. Light molasses, almost coffee bean aroma mixed with some brown sugar, green grape and malt. Flavor of malted hops, sweet burned caramel, grain and hint of cocoa. Smooth palate and crisp finish.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2005 Enjoyable, easy drinkin dark beer. A beerís beer. Good local regular times drink a good amount o beer but not drinkin lots of crappy cheap beer kind of thing. (some bottles in the 6 pack tastes worse, more plain & sour than the others)

10.25.05 12oz bottle. Attractive pour, copper-amber with lasting, small beige head of fine bubbles. Aroma is sweet and malty with white toast, caramel candy wrapped in plastic, and ladles of diacetyl. Great, I bought a 6-pack of this and itís a butter bomb. I try to take it in stride and tell myself itís an English style ale, that some butter is acceptable. Iím fairly convinced and take a sip. Body is thin, slightly dry, moderately bitter, and diacetyl from middle to back. Lingering butter not only on finish but retronasal. I must be super sensitive to the stuff. Iíve got to say though, as butter bombs go, this is one of the more palateable Iíve tried. Definitely drinkable and balanced once I can get past the butter, this is a passable session brew.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 20, 2005
Pours a translucent orange amber with an average size off white head. Aroma of hay, malts and maybe some slight pine hop. Flavor is hay, pretzels, slight hop bitterness and some roasty malts. A decent tasting fall beer, nothing too special though.

Great tasting beer for the fall. Nice color, and a good head. Long Trail is a local company here, and I expect they will continue putting out a very good beer.

Beautiful amber color, nice white head, wish it stayed around a bit longer. Lightly bitter (less than some of their others Iíve tried), light body, soft carbonation. Itís a good fall beer to mix in with the marzens.
