COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hit the Trail is a deep amber ale with a rich and smooth flavor. Malty undertones of vanilla and caramel are kept in check by the addition of Northern Brewer hops.

Bottle, pretty boring version of a pretty boring style. Light roast, some nuttiness, caramel malts. Pretty blah

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium brown color with a large creamy tan head that lingered and left some lacing. The aroma was faint sour malts, moderate wood and a touch of vague fruit. The flavor was dryish, nutty and quite woody. The finish was long and woody. Medium body. Sup par.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle/12oz - Catching up on some old ratings from notes for earlier this winter. Pours a copper red amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is light of roasted malts as well as both brown and candy sugar. Slightly sweet and nutty. Flavor is also slightly sweet with plenty of caramel and nutty malts with brown sugar. Very easy drinking...

puboflyons (2046) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2011
On tap at the Barley House in Concord, New Hampshire USA. The pour was an amber brownish red with about a half inch of silky head. The aroma has a sweet maltiness and a bit of the yeast strain on the nose. There was a slightly brown nuttiness. The texture was smooth and comfortable on the mouth. A bitter or sharp taste.

williamstome (818) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 17, 2010
On tap at Church Street Tavern as "Church Street Tavern Ale" Deep Amber with minimal head. Smells bad, with some malt. Flavor is dominated by malts and is a little bitter. Not much else to say about this.

Draft and bottles. Multiple tastings. (previous tastings from memory) Tasted this as part of a mix pack. Didn’t leave a lasting impression so may have to retaste this one.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a light copper color, with a large off white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass. The aroma is of honey, caramelized malts, nuts and some hops. The taste is sweet with flavors of honey and caramel up front. There’s a mild hops presence that gives a little balance. The after taste is slightly sweet. Smooth and crisp with medium carbonation.
