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.

Bright bronze body, mildly carbonated, short, cream-colored head. Aroma of malted milk-balls: dry pale malt with hints of caramel and cocoa. Mild flavor matches the aroma, focused on malts with a lightly soured grassiness to finish. A nice session ale. ~~~~~~~~ Variety 12 pk./12 oz. btls., random bottleshop, Paoli, PA

This beer is always a great choice if you don't know what you feel like drinking. Very session-able however it has complex malt notes as well as a hoppy bitterness at the end. I highly recommend if you haven't tried this beer before. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft taproom. I’m sure I’ve had this before but alas it’s not rated. Pours golden Amber with a small beige head. Flavor is grassy, brown leaves, caramel malt. Decent.

I really like this Amber ale, the signature beer from Long Trail in Vermont. Spent some time up there and also enjoy the Long Trail varietals, but this is probably my favorite beer from Long Trail. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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 that’s 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. It’s not bad at all, it just doesn’t 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. I’m not a big fan of ambers. This beer doesn’t suck, though.

Bottle. Aroma is sweet brown sugar malt. Taste is sweet malty with a malty bitter/hop finish. Its a very easy drinker.

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
