COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the “Alt-biers” of Düsseldorf, 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.

This didn’t have much of a scent to it, it kind of smelled like wet dog watered down with some malts. The flavor wasn’t too exciting, just malty with pine/tree flavored hops. It pours brown with a white head and was ok going down. Not sure if the Altbier is for me.

This beer is solid, but not too exciting. A good mix of malt and hops, but nothing too striking about the flavor. Good beer, but I don’t LOVE it. Its a utilitarian-type beer. Decent quality overall, I will drink this again no doubt.

On tap at Mulligan’s in Manchester, VT. Not too bad this one, sweet finish with a bit of hops up front.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Draft at the Old Bay. Clear amber ale, no head, not much aroma or flavor. Altogether unremarkable and forgettable.

Aroma is earthy and hoppy. Looks dark amber with a little white head. Mostly hop dominated flavor which seems odd for what they were intending this beer to be. Finishes crisp and cleanly. Good session beer, and I think it’s good enough to not get annoying. But also not too much of a standout.

12 oz bottle...bottled 5/12/05 Pretty decent. An altbier? I would never have guessed. Solid malt flavor with some hop bitterness bringing up the rear.

Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Pours a nice amber color with offwhite head. Malty and somewhat hoppy. Too watery. Bitter finish. Solid brew but nothing to write home about

3.8
MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Bottle. Clear brownish orange, thick tan head and nice head retention. Peppery fruity aroma. Malty fruity flavors. Moderate bitterness. Medium body. Hoppy finish. Decent drinking brew. Bottled on 5/10/05.

3.6
erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Pours a med. amber with a lite white head. Nose of mild caramel with a firm maltiness. Flavors are slightly earthy and grassy, but with a caramelly sweetness. Body is a little lite for the style and the finish is not dry enough. Otherwise, this is a really smooth beer that is a hell of a lot better than most of the ambers made in America.

Not as good as DoubleBag. Poured a copper/orange color with little head. Weak aroma. Crisp malty flavor. Nice hopped background. Not much to this beer. Decent
