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.

Pours a clear light copper with a thin layer of head that leaves a hint of lacing in its aftermath. The nose is unsurprisingly malty and bready. There is a hint of maltiness upfront. The body appears light at first, but a healthier body becomes apparent on the finish. The finish is also slightly dry.

This is a good beer - very sessionable - but nothing to write home about.
