Long Trail Brewing Co.
Vermont, United States

Style: Altbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Notes / Commercial Description:
This malty, full-bodied double alt is also known as “Stickebier” – German slang for “secret brew”. Long Trail Double Bag was originally offered only in our brewery taproom as a special treat to our visitors. With an alcohol content of 7.2%, please indulge in moderation. The Long Trail Brewing Company is proud to have Double Bag named Malt Advocate’s “Beer of the Year” in 2001. Malt Advocate is a national magazine devoted to “expanding the boundaries of fine drinks”. Their panel of judges likes to keep things simple, and therefore of thousands of eligible competitors they award only two categories: “Imported” and “Domestic”. It is a great honor to receive this recognition.

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

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty caramel color with a small head. Smell is of grains, some sweetness. Taste is malts, grains, some bitterness at the finish, different but in a good way. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.
