Big Drop Spotlight – Pine Trail Pale Ale

We’re kicking off our spotlight series with the one and only: Pine Trail Pale Ale.

So, let’s get straight in. What’s so special about our award-winning alcohol-free Pale Ale?

Pine Trail is everything you’d want from a west coast American pale ale. A beautiful, almost amber colour, with a heavy resinous aroma to complement the bitterness.

The use of Mosaic and Amarillo hops in our recipe bring the distinctive new world flavours of citrus and blueberry, whilst the Magnum brings the balanced, lingering bitterness which all craft beer fans would appreciate.

It’s full of recognisable flavours; blueberry, pine with a wonderful citrus bite as well as having a full body and mouthfeel. The lactose used helps by increasing the mouthfeel, creating a balance between the flavours ensuring they stay on your palette for longer, unlike many AF beers where the taste can quickly vanish. Therefore, this beer is not vegan friendly.

Pine Trail Pale Ale has less than 10 PPM of gluten and is safe for people with gluten intolerances and Coeliac disease.

This AF Pale Ale has 61 calories per 330ml can/bottle (compared to full strength beers which are usually 150 calories) and contains 3.6g carbs and 1.8g sugar per 100ml.

Our alcohol-free Pale Ale has bagged many awards since its creation in 2017. This year alone, it won World’s Best Pale Low Alcohol in the World Beer Awards, Gold in the Asia Beer Challenge, Gold and UK Best Entry at the USA Beer Ratings scoring an incredible 92/100 and obtained the highly sort after Master status at the Global Beer Masters.

So, there you have it, our wonderfully refreshing dry-hopped ale.
