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.

Poured a clouded orange-copper with a a nice creamy cap of off-white head that leaves slight lacing. It just slips down the wall of the glass.Big effervescent body. The aroma is almost non-existent, with just the slightest hint of malt. The body has a little more verve, with a nice malt body offering notes of bread and fruit and a little earthiness. The body has a nice fullness to it, a bite from the carbonation on the finish. A solid alt-bier style ale.
