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.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2004
A dark amber beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma is weak, but what is there is of malt and alcohol. The flavor is slightly sour with notes of malt.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 18, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2005 (draft 11-12-05) Nice off-white head atop a clear brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, chocolate, some nutty. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, nutty, light earthy. Light-medium body. A pleasant beer for the style. (6/3/6/3/12)

(bottle 1-18-04) Clear mid-brown body with small beige head that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, caramel, some earthy. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some roasty, some floral/earthy, finishing mild earthy. Light-medium body with light acidity. One of those beers that, if you weren’t consciously thinking about what it was you were drinking, would suddenly be empty and you’d have no recollection of what you drank. (5/4/5/3/10)

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2004
Orange browna ale with small off white head. Rather grassy aroma and fresh malts. Light crisp with a nice sweet malt finish , a touch of roasted. Medium to light bodied, perfect for after hitting the trail, or like me, from a bike ride in the sweltering sun.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Deep brown pour with some copper and ruby edges. The aroma is red winey, brown sugary, roasty malty, and hoppy. Decent aroma. The flavor is roasty malty, with a tart cabernet and brown sugar element. medium to light on the tongue, and pretty crisp. One of the better beers I’ve had from this brewer, and i would gladly drink it again.

Pours brown with an off white head. Smells nutty with some yogurt and cookie dough present. Taste is the same.

HogTownHarry (6108) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Clear deep amber with a small fizzy off-white head. Pleasing sweet bready malt aroma, smells a bit like a fresh brownie. Tastes of grain and cocoa, some straw-like dry hops in the finish. Watery, mostly still mouthfeel, a little harshness in the finish - ehh.

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

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Light brown coloured. Slightly malty aroma and flavour. Quite weak and rather light bodied. A boring brew.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - 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.
