Pretty damn good beer. Thin head but nice lacing with good carbonation. Nice brown sugar aroma, slightly sweet. Color is a nice reddish mahagony. Flavor is quite robust with brown sugar, roasted malts and is a bit nutty. Finish is smooth and malty. Not much hops aftertaste or presence. Although the more I drink, the more bitter the aftertaste is getting. Maybe there are some hops burried in there behind those ~17 malts. A decent brew that should please many.

Interesting. The malt has complexity, and fullness. Also, there's a hint of sourness (a good thing, because it adds depth and fullness to the body of the malt). Hops are light, at best. And it is best, because they put so many hops in their Double Bag brew, I was starting to worry that they're like Sierra Nevada and they just double-hop everything they brew. Though if you want to taste the hops here, wait for the aftertaste and you'll get a bit of bite from them. A very enjoyable brew for one who wants a Vienna-ish amber.

Mediocre compared to other Long Trail entries. Very little aftertaste. Medium hops with little malt character. Pick up a Double Bag or or their AltBier ale over this.

yellow honeycomb color, clear. the head retreats to the edge of the glass and quickly gives up the ghost, leaving behind a fragile gasket of biege. nice moderate aroma, toasted almond, pumpkin, old shoe box. the "17 combined malts and hops" is shorthand for "what the hell ever is left over"--probably a couple half finished doughnuts and an order of nachos nobody wanted-- all of it goes right in the wort. well, all those ingredients donít compete too much, and donít add up to much: kind of a big, bland, underachieving but happy family. effervesence manifests itself just bit on the tongue, a lightly sweet and savory german nut-bread kind of flavor; modest bitterness, rather thin. balanced, but not bold. shoulda added maybe six or eight more malts and whatís left of this morningís pancakes.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Sept 01: Decent, maybe too sweet with a slightly off balance; bit thin; just not a lot of character, though above average for this brewer. Oct 02: Thereís an interesting smokiness in the middle, but on the whole I found this yearís model very thin and watery, so smooth you forget you were drinking beer after you finish the pint. Significantly downgraded.

This deep amber brew pours with a thick creamy head, leaving good lace. Tha aroma is hard to detect, but is slightly hoppy. Well balanced flavor with slightly more malt showing through. the finish is slightly sweet and malty. this beer is surprisingly smotth and light.

This oneís alright. I canít stand their labeling, but the beer itself was decent. A little sub-par on all sides, but easily drinkable. Itís a little better than their other beers, but not to my liking.

Gorgeous auburn amber hue. Minimal head. Like VENOM says, this beers character comes out when it warms up. Very dry and bland when cold. Grain, toffee, fruit come out when it warms up. I definately enjoy this brew, very smooth.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2004 Re-rate 8/23/02: Stale malty aroma (this is a new bottle), weak malty taste, ends watery and with little fanfare. -0.7 from last time. 9/15/01 Very light tasting. I wish there was more bite to it.

Pleasant caramel and roasted malt…Elegant flowers and spices…A bit too quiet though…
