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.

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 its good enough to not get annoying. But also not too much of a standout.

Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2005
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

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.

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.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2005
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

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2005
05.25.05 12oz bottle. Glistening, coppery brown with thick and fluffy off-white head. Mild aromas of cooked, husky grains, crusty, a touch salty. Flavor is very mild and a bit bland with tons of bitterness, tingly fizz. Reminds of salted stale pretzels, but abrupt and bitter. Really need some body, less eff.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Pours bright copper an still with a creamy ivory head. not much lace to speak of. Smells quite hoppy with hints of spice and faint sour apple. Taste is bitter. Bitter throughout for various reasons. Spicy malt flavors in there somewhere. Not sure of how to describe this but it tastes "grainy", like unmalted barley. Hoppy finish and aftertaste. This beer is crisp and easy to drink. Would make a nice session brew during a ski vacation. Solid.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2005
On tap in Maynard, MA. Poured a nice bubbly amber, decent head for a bar pour. God forbid you get a head on your beer in a bar. Anyway, thought this was a very refreshing beer - some citrus flavor to it and very palatable.
