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: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A-Pours a translucent coppery color. Head forms then dies. Small bits of lacing.

S-Smells a lot like applejuice to me. No hop character in the nose. A bit skunky as well. Lighter malt profile. Mostly smells like juice.

T-Unique. This literally some sort of all natural juice. A tiny hop bite hits in the end. Light caramel malt I think. Tastes like juice, all I can think of right now.

M-Light, crisp, pretty refreshing. Not too carbonated.

D-I cannot tell if I like this beer or mildly despise it. If I like it, it is very drinkable because it is very light and the alcohol is completely masked. I still can't figure of if I like it.

Its more interesting than I expected.
