In celebration of the autumn harvest we’ve brewed this brown ale with locally harvested Vermont ingredients... a truly unique Taste of Vermont!

It had a medium reddish brown color with good clarity and a thin just off white colored head. The head hangs on and leaves nice lacing on the glass. Its aroma has hints of lightly toasted sweet malts with some mild floral and leafy hops. The flavor was for me a little light but nicely balanced for an English Brown Ale. It has a nice malty presence with just enough hops for balance and character. The body had a smooth medium body with average carbonation.

Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours dark brown . red with a thin white head. Aroma is nutty, light spice, leaves. Taste is nutty, maple syrup, spice, brown sugar, molasses. Medium body, a little sweet, nutty finish on the back end, but overall a pretty solid beer especially for the style.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown color with a two finger beige head. Aroma was toasty with caramel and some nuttiness. Flavor of toasted malts, sweet caramel, brown sugar, nuts and some faint chocolate.

Reviewed from notes from some time ago (September 03, 2012). Pours a dark amber/brown and leaves the same colored body that leaves a large full two finger white head that lasts a good minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing is around the sides of the glass. The aroma has a great combination of brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup and a short roasty nutty aroma. The taste has all of the previously mentioned ingredients combined perfectly. On the palate, the body feels about a medium and leaves a slight stickiness, not bad, nutty aftertaste and finish. Overall, I’ll go out on a limb and say this is probably one of most drinkable browns on the market.

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.

On tap. Dark reddish brown color topped by a brief small beige head. Big earthy toasted malt aroma has notes of burnt sugar. Flavor is more caramel maltiness with a touch of spicy hops. Notes of sulphur and brown sugar, as well.

Government shutdown beer #2, thank you Congress. Draft. Hazy amber brown color, medium tan head. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel. Taste is sweet caramel. More palatable than a conference committee.

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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
