Bottle: This beer is not amazing, but itís not terrible. Honey dominates the aroma followed by a little bit of hops. Overall this is a weaker aroma. Taste is not big either - notes of honey, citrus & hop bitterness, very mild light malts. Not one of the best from Long Trail.

Unattractive, fizzy orange caramalt aroma...Citrusy hops and fruity malt hug the carbonation to merge with the emerging, authentic honey...Honey bitterness hastily vanishes into the void of an aftertaste...

Honey nose, colour, small disappearing white head. Sweet, and thats about where it goes. Lacking in depth, flavor and all of the above...Im not too impressed...Sorry LT!

Has a golden/yellow color with some carbonation and a sweet, but somewhat tinny smell. Taste is also a bit tinny and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall too american standardish for me.

Golden amber color topped with a medium thick white head and good lace. Slightly sweet aroma wiht hoppy undertones. Hoppy flavor with a slight sweetness and a little maltiness. Dry and medium bodied.

light color, light flavors smells ídustyí. I do not taste the honey. Anyone interested ib tasting a New England Honey Beer needs to try Brother Adams Bragget Honey Ale from Bar Harbor.

Kind of plain,. but very smooth. A little on the sweet side, but nothing that could be found offensive. Wont go lookin for this one, but I would drink it again.

the label needs an overhaul. the cartoon bear and little bees and gay flowers are better suited to a little girlís lunchbox. the beer looks as brassy as an eagle on a flagpole, tho the head wasnít as proud. it was all it could do to manage a loose necklace of end-to-end bubbles once around the glass. moderate aroma like one of those breakfast cereals with toasted grains, nuts and honey, also a sour note that i pressume the composer didnít intend. i donít know if itís old-- i donít have my secret decoder ring to decipher the freshness date. (i have a peeve with these "best by:..." addendums to the label that are probably meant to be illegible. this one looks like it was rubberstamped by a drunken monkey as it shot by on the conveyor belt). anyway,itís okay tasting at best-- for the eveningís first beer. grainy, lite vanilla bean flavor, the bitterness is metallic, a hint of sauerkraut juice, not much body. if my trash basket was on fire, iím not sure if iíd pour this beer on it, or go and fetch some water.

I did not like this. Apparently, thereís honey in here, but it was non present. All I tasted was a sub-par stock ale that wasnít really done all that well to begin with. The labeling is totally kitschy, too. Itís something my sister would call "cute". Long Trail fails to impress.
