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.

Taste: Same as above. Bready, burnt toast, some caramel, a little herbal, and a little bitterness.

Overall: Pretty nice altbier. Enjoyed a lot over the years.

Serving type: bottle
