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.

needs a cigarette.. love the initial taste, color is pure. a bit of a soda pop aeration. after 3 minutes it smells better. so not too bad but the pallet ends up gritty. texture is bit foamy. makes pretzels very dry. possible bulk quantity for unexpected guests.
