delicious honey aroma; drink ICE cold and it tastes like heaven on a hot day. just the right amount of flavor for a honey ale, not too overpowering on the honey flavor; great beer! long trail is a quality brewery

Loved the Pollenater even more so than my normal Long Trail Ale IPA. Great summer beer for those long dusky into night evenings with friends and food. great taste and refreshing flavors meld with a nice colorization. Super if you can get it on tap but from the bottle it is just as good

Great brew. Nice butterscotch honey flavor that almost tastes like they melted a sugar daddy into a golden ale. Superb flavor and the overall balance is better at cellar temp. Different but excellent.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 012312. The color is golden yellow with slow moving carbonation leading up to a large, white fizzy head that lingers for a time. The aroma is sweet with roasted barley malts and a more subtle but clean hop backdrop. The body is light and creamy. This beer is refreshing with a pleasant balance and moderate bitterness. It is a finely crafted spring ale.

Pours a light golden with plenty of carbonation and a small white head, looks like a lager. Kind of smells like honey when cracking the bottle but has a more grassy, weis like smell to it in glass. Watery texture with carbonation that actually fits the brew perfectly. Light hops and almost no malt make it quite lager-ish at first. The best part of the brew however is the finish, with honey subtlety hitting your taste buds (not sweet at all) leaving you wanting more. Great session ale for a hot day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
20th Anniversary Limited Release! 22oz brown glass pry-top. Date stamp on neck 060209.
Appearance: Poured into a Long Trail Imperial pint. Thick bone white stiff head on top of a crystal clear amber beer.
Nose: Some sweet honey notes, wild flowers, light biscuity note.
Palate: Medium-bodied and sweet with honey up front. The honey fades into English ale-like malt flavors, and rounds out. The finish picks up an odd bitter note, doesn’t seem like hop bitterness, more earthy and twig-like bitterness.
Notes: An easy going summer sipper. Nothing fancy, but fairly smooth and drinkable. FFO Magic Hat’s Hocus Pocus.

Faint aroma of honey. Pale golden yellow . Has a mild bitter sweet but refreshingly dry finish. Easy drinking and perfect for the warm weather months ahead.

A very fine summer brew. Has a lot more body than most of the lighter summer brews.
