Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 03-08-1999

This malty, full-bodied double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. Long Trail Double Bag was originally offered only in our brewery taproom as a special treat to our visitors. With an alcohol content of 7.2%, please indulge in moderation. The Long Trail Brewing Company is proud to have Double Bag named Malt Advocate’s “Beer of the Year” in 2001. Malt Advocate is a national magazine devoted to “expanding the boundaries of fine drinks”. Their panel of judges likes to keep things simple, and therefore of thousands of eligible competitors they award only two categories: “Imported” and “Domestic”. It is a great honor to receive this recognition.

A: Deep amber in color. Clear. Forms a small off-white head that doesn't bother sticking around for long.

S: Lots of sweet caramel malt and some light floral hops.

T: Caramel malts, butterscotch. Moderately sweet. Floral on the finish.

M: Medium body. Appropriate carbonation. Very mild bitterness.

O: A better than decent beer, though I'll admit I'm not entirely familiar with the style or the sub-style.

A: Poured from a bottle to a kolsch glass. Had a bright copper color and a clear consistency. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: Smelled predominantly of malt and caramel. Not overly aromatic, but nice nonetheless.

T: Tasted of malt, caramel, and an almost bready quality. This is a solid, well-constructed beer. Basically, it tastes like an altbier should.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is a focused, well made, likeable beer.
