Long Trail Brewing Co.
Bridgewater Corners, Vermont
Appearance: It starts at the top with a thick, white sticky head that left big thick lacing all the way down and stood strong just as long. The ale was a golden yellow with a little translucency.
Smell: It is a strong smelling beer, slight citrus piny hops backed by a hint of malt sweetness.
Taste: This one is balanced well, and mirrors the good qualities of the beers smell. It is a whole bunch of citrus hops, with a touch of earthy spice, but stays very lemony. The malt is there on the back end, giving this one a bit more to stand on than many pale ales.
Mouthfeel: A nice, thick mouth coating beer. The head is perfect on this one, and keeps it alive all the way through.
Drinkability/Palitability: Huge! This is one that you could put on tap in your house, and the keg would be gone before you knew it.
Notes: A very solid pale ale. Love the mouthfeel and is quite balanced. I need to drink this one more often.
