Pleasant enough as a low alcohol session beer. Low OG for low alcohol also leads to pretty average mouth feel. Nutty notes as befits a brown, some malt, some hops, but really not especially interesting. There is a new stone ballast point collaboration that works much better as a session beer.

This is a fine brown ale that was gifted to me by my beloved galpal Nancy... it poured a dark brown brew with an off-white head of foam and a roasted, grainy aroma. Tastewise, it had a solid grain/yeast body and taste, and I enjoyed it!

Shot (436) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a thin lacy head. Earthy aromas of caramel malt, dark chocolate and earthy hops. Earthy flavors too--coffee, cola, hay, roasty malt, and subtle dark fruits. Finishes with earthy hops. Watery, thin, slightly fizzy mouthfeel. Just okay.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. This was just OK, not great but a valiant effort on the part of Long Trail. Worth a purchase and a taste.

damzz (454) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Pours true to name: brown with an off white head that leaves lacing. Nose is roasted malt. Body is medium. Taste is roasted malt with light bitterness in the aftertaste. 12 oz bottle in a 121 pack at a great price

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Maplefields (St. Albans, VT) au coût de 1,90$. Arôme: Légère odeur de caramel et de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée-brunâtre avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe d’érable et de noix. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’érable en arrière goût. (Rating #6507)

Onslow (1378) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear cola colored ale with small tan head. Aroma of light caramel, toast, metal and hints of nuts. Taste is weakly sweet up front transitioning to a toasted / nutty finish, ends with a wet burnt toast taste. Thin palate.

jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - OCT 24, 2015
From 12 oz bottle. About $1.07 for single bottle at Trader Joes, poured into pilsner glass

Aroma: That brown ale smell, caramel, bread

Appearance: brown, clear, minimal head, white foam,

Taste: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter,

Palate: medium body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish,

Overall: Not a bad brown ale. Tastes exactly what I’d consider a standard brown ale and matches what a brown ale should taste like. Good body and "brown ale" aroma and taste. Nothing remarkable - it’s a brown ale - but it’s a very solid brown ale, if that’s your thing.

Ehh....not what I would expect from Long Trail. I'm basing this on the fact that it's supposed to be an ale but it's a brown ale for sure. As a brown ale....it's ok, but as an ale, not so much. If in a weak brown ale mood, this will cut the mustard, otherwise...not so much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
