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.

Didn't get a sense of presentation or aroma as I consumed out of the bottle. Very full bodied for an amber with solid (but not over powering) presence of hops. A touch of bitter about the same time the beverage reaches your stomach (I love that!). While I appreciate that others have different expectations from an amber, this beer completely resonated with my pallet. Will soon be pouring this into an iced mug to observe the rest of it behavior.

For an Amber it really stands out above the rest.
