This pours hazy reddish brown with a lush off-white head. Decent lacing is happening here. It remains cloudy. (There’s something that I just find sexy about a cloudy beer). It smells of strong honey and some cereal. I taste malty sweetness (just what I want in a beer), sugar, honey and some fruitiness. The 7.9% ABV is completely hidden in this pleasant flavor. The finish is sweet and somewhat hoppy. All stars are aligned. It’s a bit heavy on the mouth feel with low to moderate carbonation. I am quite a fan of this beer.

Translucent amber brown with a creamy beige head. Creamy full body with gentle medium carbonation, making it quite quaffable for its body and abv.yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Aroma: caramel and roasted malts, dark fruit, herbal hops, and a hint of silage.
Taste: caramel and darkly kilned malts, soft herbal floral hops, and a nice touch of acidity that helps bring balance and drinkability to a beer that could otherwise be to heavy and sweet.
Balanced, complex, and easy to like.
Long Trail Centennial Red is a dim red ale with a thick, creamy, khaki colored head that has outstanding retention and lacing. There’s a huge, wooden, pine spice in the nose with perhaps a whiff of caramel. It smells great. It’s full bodied and soft with a chewy finish. This beer has a big, bitter, resiny flavor. It’s very spicy, with notes of pine, juniper and black pepper. It’s serious business. It’s cool to see an East Coast brewery take a very West Coast style and do a good job of it.

bottle. i love a good red ale and this is nothing short of fantastic. deep ruby red with a small, stable, beige head. big malty nose with lots of sweetness, caramel, dark fruits. full body with a juicy palate. warming finish in a good way. flavors of big sweet malts, the crucial toast/coffee note, and lots of fruits (think red apple, plum, black cherry). could drink this all day.

(bottle) Like most beers from this brewery, I think this is underrated and a great value. Well commercially described as an Imperial Red Ale. This is full flavored, with a lingering palate and balanced with semi-bitter hops and sweet malt. Would be easy to session. Alcohol well hidden. Nicely done. I think the Brewmaster series are putting up some great American craft brews.

22 oz bottle. Pours a ruby red amber with an off white head. Big nose of zesty and fruity yeast, apricot, piny hops, citrus, sugary malts. Full body and full taste, tart grapefruit and piny hops well balanced with almost sticky malts and a warming spicy finish. Long Trail is continuing to impress me.

22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a crystal, clear amber-red with a foamy off-white head that lasts throughout. Good lacing. Big hop aroma. Lots of pine and a bit earthy. Caramel malt, dark fruits, and a hint of alcohol. Upfront bitter hop flavor followed by sweet malt, caramel, raisins, and some toasty notes. Long hoppy finish of grapefruit and grass. Full bodied. Average carbonation. Slightly warming finish. Keg_Juggler (193) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 1, 2011
