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.

I poured it from a bottle into a pint glass. It pours an amber color with a nice head and some lacing. The aroma is caramel and malt. The taste was a crisp and bready malt with a hint of hops. This was a solid and very drinkable amber.

12 oz bottle in a pint glass. A hearty amber colored beer. More hearty and hoppy and less sweet than a typcial American amber, I think this is actually an altbier.

jamesewelch (259) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 23, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2015 12oz bottle, from variety pack

Aroma: spicy and floral hops, complex grainy, rich malts, nutty and toasty

Appearance: deep copper color, tan head, very good clarity

Taste: low hops, malty clean finish, rich and but maybe not too complex, grainy, nutty finish

Palate: Medium body, smooth, no astringency

Overall: A well balanced, malty, clean lager. Malt richness seems to dominate the hop bitterness, but that may be due to the finish.

dliberto (217) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is comprised of lemon, banana, clove, and caramel. Taste was extremely strange to me, on first sip It tasted like green beans. But as I got further into the beer the floral notes mixed with the lemon to make this beer a little better. Medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Could have just have been me on this day but I find this beer to be weird, not bad, just not a taste that I like.

BrettTaylor (747) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Poured as a taster - will re-rate once I have a full serving. Pours a nice amber color with little white head. Aroma of malt and some hops. Taste - malt, subtle hop notes. I imagine this would go well with food.

Metalchopz (3202) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2014
Part of their mixed pack on my trip to Maine. Pours a clean dark amber colour with a light beige head, good retention and lots of dirty lacing. Grainy dark cereal grain with hints of grassy hops. The taste has the same darker grain malts but with the hops being a little bolder, creating decent bitterness and dryness. A decent Altbier all around that is made for a session.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 18, 2014
A crystal clear amber with a thin beige head. Crisp clean green herbal aroma with a sold maltiness in a supporting role. The taste is bready dark toffee malts with a crisp bitter finish. Nicely done.
