2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma resembles a brown ale. Some mild roasty notes and the slightest amount of hop bitterness upfront. Sweet, malty finish, maple syrup finish, which makes sense Light, lightly carbonated mouthfeel - only 3.6% ABV and tastes almost like a carbonated British bitter. All in all, not a bad beer but nothing really to recommend it either in my opinion.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium brown pour with a smallish khaki head. Not getting too much on the nose, maybe a little hazelnut with a bready maltiness. Flavors are of roasted malts and grains. With the 4.4, the body is pretty watery. I respect Long Trail as one of the first craft breweries I got into and I like a good brown ale, but this particular offering didn’t do it for me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep brownish amber with an off white head and ok lacing. Head retention is average at best. Smell is of roasted nutty malt with maple syrup and wood. Taste is similar, a bit woody, sweet and earthy, mild but adequate hop presence. Caramel and coffee both come though a bit, especially in between sips. Mouthfeel is slightly viscous a touch syrupy. A nice fall beer from Long Trail, right up there with a lot of other brown ales I've tried.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A- Dark hazel brown. With thick head that disappears into a thin layer of tiny bubbles.
S - Smoked woody malt. Tosted toffe. Floral hops. Coffee.
T - Toasted malt, hazelnuts and toffee. Hints of brown sugar and chocolate. Kinda thins out towards the finish.
This has nice toasty flavors but it’s watery and thin. You lose everthing on the finish.
Serving type: on-tap

Not a stand out. Dull and a little watery. Long Trail has much better beers.
