Long Trail Brewmaster's Series Centennial Red
I picked up a bottle of Long Trail Brewmaster's Series Centennial Red from Discount Wines and Liquors in Boonton, New Jersey. The beer pours a dark cherry red with a frothy off-white head. The aroma consists of fresh pine hops and caramel malts. The taste is smooth and sweet with caramel at first with a wonderful toasted caramel malt base. The finish is a little dry with toffee and lemon. The alcohol content is 7.9% ABV. I really enjoyed the toasted caramel aspect of this beer, as it wasn’t just your typical red ale. The amount of hops also adds a great bitterness element to it.
