COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the Alt-biers of Dsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival.

Light brown pour with minimal head. Aroma is malty and grainy with a mild chem and/or meat smell - like a frying pan used to cook burgers the day before. Thankfully thats missing in the flavor which is nicely malty with just enough hop to balance slightly on the sweet side. Feel/finish is okay with lingering toasted flavor.

Last beer from a Long Trail variety pack and easily the least of the bunch. This altbeir is basically just a middle of the road amber ale. Malty body, easy drinking, very clean. I could see how something like this could be a good transitional beer for someone raised on pale lagers and malt beverages. Its not bad at all, it just doesnt do anything particularly memorable. Good beer for sitting around in a freezing apartment trying to decide what movie to fall asleep to.

Pouls a medium brown with a thickish off-white head. Kinda light/olive for an amber. Aroma is definitely of an amber, but not too overpowering. Flavor is same. Solid amber - center of the line. Im not a big fan of ambers. This beer doesnt suck, though.

Looks good and smells good. A solid Amber. Just a little thin. All in all, a nice easy drinking beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a reddish amber color with ivory colored head. Caramel malts, bread, toast, and some cereal on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes very malty.

ThirstyBird (2844) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Bottle, pours a clear light Amber color with a light tan head. The smell is lightly roasted malt, some herbal notes, fruit and a touch of brown sugar. The taste is roasted malt, light fruit, a bit herbal ending a bit dry. Light body with average carbonation.

Bottle purchased in Vermont. This is a really nice Amber ale. I have enjoyed many beers from this variety pack, but the long trail ale is one of my favourites. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Bought in Cambridge Mass in the store that sells singles (does every store here?). Pours deep but reddish amber with small dense off-white head. Nose is caramel, heavy cream, sweet-smelling fruity esters. Flavor is great - understandably a classic where its from - simple, vienna-like slightly sweet and very caramelly malts. Finishes with a really refreshing and zingy touch of clean german noble-like hops. I really liked this - this is the kind of beer that will make America great again.

Bottle: (labeled as 5.0 ABV, 28 IBU) Clear, dark amber with a thick, off-white head. Nutty, caramel aroma. Taste is roasted nuts, caramel malt. A pretty nice, toasty beer....rather enjoyable.
