This Long Trail scores a flat 3.2 which is about how it feels. Pass this unless there's only bud to drink.
A: Nice initial head but a fast fade to flat, yellow body. Not much to look at.
S: Not much smell, the faint components of citrus zest, spice rack, and tangy wheat, but all tame, and it has that marginal, metallic back ground that Vermonts Magic Hat seems to offer.
"Smells like a hair salon" - one wrote.
T: Faintly there. It's a session beer, but a bit lacking in the finish
MF: Fail. Thin, flat, metallic, and a cottony mouth finish. Feels like I inhaled some hair spray.
Downgrades the beer to an average 3.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very hazy golden color with a one finger head of white foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a sour lemon smell mixed with a good amount of a biscuit aroma. A bit of wheat bread and some coriander as well as a little bit of orange and a light grassy smell are there as well.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather dry flavor, with just a bit of a cracker flavor and a bit of yeast and coriander spice. As the flavor advances a very light orange and lemon flavor develop on the tongue bringing just a hint of sweetness and sourness to the profile. Along the same time, a bit of graininess and some light grassy and moderately hay-like flavors develop on the tongue as well. The yeasty flavors grow stronger as the taste moves to the end, leaving a rather bland and dry flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average as well. With little flavor, an even higher carbonation and thinner body may have been more appropriate for the brew.
Overall – Not a brew I would go to again. For the most part it was very low on the flavor profile with the flavors not even really being that good. While I understand that at 4.7 % abv. that I will not get a flavor powerhouse, this one is actually less flavorful and more offensive then most low cal. brews.
