Sampled at ACBF. Honey aroma with a slight amount of sour malt. Clear golden color with a small white head. Sweet and a little bitter beginning with a sweet honey finish.

SFLpunk (134) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2009
20th Anniversary Limited Release! 22oz brown glass pry-top. Date stamp on neck 060209. Appearance: Poured into a Long Trail Imperial pint. Thick bone white stiff head on top of a crystal clear amber beer. Nose: Some sweet honey notes, wild flowers, light biscuity note. Palate: Medium-bodied and sweet with honey up front. The honey fades into English ale-like malt flavors, and rounds out. The finish picks up an odd bitter note, doesn’t seem like hop bitterness, more earthy and twig-like bitterness. Notes: An easy going summer sipper. Nothing fancy, but fairly smooth and drinkable. FFO Magic Hat’s Hocus Pocus.

ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours a golden amber color topped by a medium thick white head with a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Sweet honey aroma with hoppy undertones. Hoppy flavor with a honey sweetness and a little maltiness. Dry and medium bodied.

Bottle: This beer is not amazing, but it’s not terrible. Honey dominates the aroma followed by a little bit of hops. Overall this is a weaker aroma. Taste is not big either - notes of honey, citrus & hop bitterness, very mild light malts. Not one of the best from Long Trail.

I cannot say anything good about thios beer but if someone wants to make a mead then make one this is a sorry attemt at something that in the end turned up as swill!!!!

MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Unattractive, fizzy orange caramalt aroma...Citrusy hops and fruity malt hug the carbonation to merge with the emerging, authentic honey...Honey bitterness hastily vanishes into the void of an aftertaste...

Honey nose, colour, small disappearing white head. Sweet, and thats about where it goes. Lacking in depth, flavor and all of the above...Im not too impressed...Sorry LT!

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Has a golden/yellow color with some carbonation and a sweet, but somewhat tinny smell. Taste is also a bit tinny and finishes with a slight bitterness. Overall too american standardish for me.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2003
Golden amber color topped with a medium thick white head and good lace. Slightly sweet aroma wiht hoppy undertones. Hoppy flavor with a slight sweetness and a little maltiness. Dry and medium bodied.

light color, light flavors smells 'dusty'. I do not taste the honey. Anyone interested ib tasting a New England Honey Beer needs to try Brother Adams Bragget Honey Ale from Bar Harbor.
