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.

though this seemed rather middle of the road, the road being on in a beautiful section of MA and during a ballgame in a fun bar added a smooth ride - good enough for three pints

Full head, great color. Has an odd, almost nut-brown ale flavoring. Not a standout.

Panzuriel (2038) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Nice copper color with medium head. Nutty flavor with hints of carmel. Nice aftertaste.

egajdzis (6233) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Poured a copper color with a small off white head and light lacing. Earthy and lightly sweet caramel aroma. More caramel in the flavor as well as nuts, and light citrus. Balanced.

DocLock (10215) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Pours dark straw/orangish, with some malt and slight hops. Tastes malty, with finishing slight hops, and a decent crisp malt at the finish.

I found that many of the ales brewed in the northeast have a very similar feel and taste. This one is no exception and I prefer other local ales to this one.

CamdenD (1195) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 18, 2004
Nice full red coloring, but everything else is very average. Reminded me of the sam adams boston ale, but with a bit less going for it. You can drink this one easily, as it goes down smooth, but then again, so does bud light, right?

Dorwart (2562) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Thin but frothy head with decent lacing and low carbonation. Malty bready aroma with a bit of hops. Color is a medium golden orange. Soft mouth feel. More bread/dough and malts and a bit of toasty grains. Finish is slightly dry and a little bitter. The hops are really pronounced at the finish. A decent altbier.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Had this last weekend at home in VT. Plentiful here, and a decent beer but definitely not amazing. As VTHopHead says, it does not match up to the other beers from VT. Doesnt really taste like an Altbier.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2004
A common beer in these parts and an early leader in the "micros" from VT, but it does not match up to the better beers being produced in VT now. This is a drinkable beer, but I will choose another unless given not other alternative.
