Review - Long Trail Ale
"Long Trail Ale is full-bodied amber ale modeled after the "Alt-biers" of Dusseldorf, 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 quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival." -- Long Trail Brewing
This ale pours a light amber color with a frothy, small head. There is virtually no residue on the glass. The body is clear with minimal bubbles. Not an overpowering aroma, but there are hints of flowery hops, as well as some peach. Taste is lightly acidic and lightly bitter, finishing just lightly bitter. Light mouthfeel with a watery texture and lively carbonation. A somewhat chalky feel on the finish.
