Notes/Commercial Description:
Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the “Alt-biers” of Düsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours a light clear copper amber, with a beautiful off white, tight abundant head with superior retention.
Smell has some good balance of orange rind like herbal hops, as well as bready maltiness.
Taste: not as interesting to the palate, as it is to the nose, as hops take a distant back seat and I get mostly bready maltiness.
Still a real solid ale but certainly not up to the high standars of the Long Trail Double Bag.

Serving type: bottle
