Poured out a nut brown, mostly clear color, crowned by a small off white head. The nose had some good toasted malt character, nuttyness, and a tiny big o hops. The taste was like watered down hazelnut juice. Nothing else to report here. Low carbonation, a slick mouthfeel. Not too enjoyable for me, few redeaming qualitites.

Pours a three finger off-white head that fades quickly leaving a good lace. Nice crystal clear red-amber color. Light carbonation and light bodied. Fruity nose. Flavor is lacking - watery sweet without much backbone. Some hops at finish. Contract brewed for Jay Peak Resort by Long Trail. $1.50 for a 12oz bottle from Beverage Warehouse Winooski, VT.

Pours a clear, amber brown with no head but some thin lasting lace. The aroma is of sweet roasted malts, coffee, and molasses. The flavor starts with root beer barrel candy followed by roasted nuts, spices, and a hint of smoke in the finish. The mouthfeel is thin. Jay Peak Tram Ale is an average beer, light and drinkable. Recommended.

12oz bottle poured in a pilsner glass.

Pours a deep dark amber color with a decent fluffy head that slowly fades. Aroma is... meh? What's there other than some light malt? Not much. It has some light lacing.

Very crisp and smooth, almost velvety. A slight amount of bitterness but not much as the malt dominate. Quite pleasant and I imagine it'd be great after a good day of skiing.

Pint on draught at Jay Peak's Tower Bar. Beer is cola brown with nearly no head. Faintly sweet aroma, little carbonation. Flavor is dry and nutty with no hop edge but still well balanced. smooth, low ABVs, but not remarkable. stick with double bag :)

Bottle brought back by a traveling neighbor (as "Jay Peak Tram Ale"). This brew is a clear dark amber color with a thin and foamy beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of sweet toffee and malt. Light, clean body with sweet grainy malt, caramel and fruit flavors. Very little hops are detected. The finish is sweet with caramel malt lingering in the aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle stamped 01/08/14-3353-B. Sampled on March 29, 2014.

It looks very nice with its chestnut brown pour and quick-lived white head. Decent clarity. Yup, it is an amber ale by the way it looks.

But after that it is fairly routine with an aroma of caramel malts and clean hops. Nothing extraordinary but nothing bad.

Mostly medium body so that it something. Acidity too.

The taste has a toasted biscuit malt character and halfway decent bitter hop finish. But everything about this is pretty routine as far as amber ales go. If you like ambers you will find it appealing, If you don 't, you won't. This is one of those beers that is brewed to be served to the masses who visit a particular business...in this case - Jay Peak Ski Area of Vermont. The average person will go away from there saying, "Wow! they have their own beer." But it is nothing you can't get elsewhere.
