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.

From the 22 fl. oz. bottle with a marking of 121608-84857 and sampled on March 3, 2009.

A - The pour is a handsome looking copper-amber with good clarity and about a quarter-inch short-lived off-white foamy head. Light lacing along the pint glass.

S - The aroma has an appealing malty and overripe fruit sensation as well as something sweet.

T - Medium mouthfeel with a sugar sweet start, a roasted malt middle, and a dry hopped finale. Good "belch" factor. Mild and fresh. Something I would have again.
