Had an opportunity to have this beer the past two years while vacationing in Vermont. We went to Long Trail and they had this and all of their beers on tap. The color was a nice amber color with a sweet smell. The taste was amazing....it finishes off with a subtle hint of maple syrup. I have had this in bottles, we brought home a case, and it is very good from the bottle too. If you get up there, go to the brewing company and taste it all...the Good Night Irene was even better.

Poured a brilliant clear light bronze color with some deep burnt orange hue a frothy,tight 1/2 finger well retained head atop,somewhat muted aromas some caramel and butter with an underlying light roastiness not much hop presence to it.Flavors tend to be on the malty side the hops provide some earthiness mainly starts out somewhat sweet and buttery like caramel corn almost with a defient toatiness underneath the earthiness finishes this beer out in a drying finish.Not a bad brew seems to be pretty basic in the amber category I personally would have liked a more hop presence in a harvest ale but this is a quaffing ale. Thanks to Sam and Jeff from Red White And Brew in Florence for reccomending this beer. It is yet another enjoyable that they have steered me toward

By far, my favorite in the Long Trail family. Let this one sit for a while after taking it out of the fridge, or else you're depriving yourself of the true greatness of this beer. Flavors/aromas galore. A great seasonal and a great ale overall.

My favorite of the Long Trail 'Survival Pack', this Amber Ale pours a nice copper/orange amber with some attractive golden/orange highlights. The off-white head is average but despite a harsh pour it fades rather quickly and leaves a thin ring of lace behind upon tasting.

The nose is full and robust for the style with lots of roasty caramel and nutty, toasted brown bread. A slight fruit character, possibly black cherry, and a hint of floral, slightly spicy hops and mild lemon zest. Despite the fact that the aroma is dominated by malt, there is a distinct brightness.

Roasty and full flavored but still refreshing. Clean and well balanced with earthy caramel and brown bread. A buttery character gives way for some spicy hops. Brown sugar and a mild cider quality. Complex with a lingering toasty finish.

Medium bodied and very smooth with just enough lively, fine textured carbonation to lighten up the mouthfeel. Velvety and very clean. Pleasant and lingering with a slightly dry finish. The drinkability is outstanding with a low ABV and a taste that's hard to get tired of. Really exceptional and a fantastic way to ring in the fall.

Into a pint glass:

A: dark amber/brown body that leaves a large full two finger white head that lasts a good minute. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. No lacing is around the sides of the glass.

S: great combination of brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup and a short roasty nutty aroma.

T: all of the previously mentioned ingredients combined perfectly.

M: medium and leaves a slight stickiness, not bad, nutty aftertaste and finish

O: its just as I remembered it and makes me glad I got some this year. This is very drinkable, in fact, I'll go out on a limb and say this is probably one of most drinkable browns on the market.

This clear deep amber colored brew is topped by a thin beige head. It reduces to a film in about a minute. Lacing is adequate. Nice aroma of malted grains and hops. Something sweet as well, like cinamon bread. I think this beer deserves a category of its own. 17 malt and hop varities? I don't think any other amber ales could claim that. It's a really nice tasting beer. Medium to full in body. This beer has layers of subtleties. A firm maltiness. A slight caramel malt addition. Graininess. A noticeable bitterness. And a sweet "sugar cookie-like" doughiness. A nicely layered tasty beverage.

Gotta give props to pbrian for sending this one my way.

Light chestnut brown crystal clear body, well carbonated, but a thin tan head. A very good looking beer.

Roasty caramel malt forward nose.

Chocolate notes in the flavor as well as the roasty caramel.

Medium thin mouth feel with great balance.

A very drinkable beer that surprised me. I did not expect to like this so much. One of the best harvest beers I've sampled this season.

Pours a reddish brown color with a small amount of white head.
Smells very malty with almost a smoked or peated aroma. Smells quite good. Taste is mellow with a smooth feel. Malts hit the palate and please the tastebuds. The malts add a nice characterstic to this beer and really make this beer. Flowery hops are present and add to this tasty brew. I really enjoyed this beer and will try to get it again. The aftertaste is very malty and pleasing. Delicious!

I must say I was shocked by this beer, didn't expect much. Poured brownish auburn with a big thick lasting head. I loved the smell, had hints of honey. The mouthfeel was wonderfully fluid and mouth coating. The blend of flavors is quite impressive (honey, woodsy, roasty). Very drinkable and quenching brew. Highly recommended!
