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.

This is a great ale. Full bodied taste with just the right bite. Hot summer days to brutally cold vermont winter nights this beer will always appease.

Overall a really solid Ale. Not a big Ale drinker but I definitely prefer this one over most that are out there. It's got nice flavors to it and I'd definitely recommend.

poured from a 12 oz. bottle clear amber hardly any head or lace smell is a little better with a malty slightly sweet note. taste is smooth and mostly malt hint of caramel well balanced and carbonation good, very easy drinker.
