  • Pours with a slight chill haze. Ample pure white foam covers. Good retention. Nary the lacing.

    Aroma brings subtle pine. Even lighter floral. Malt sweetness brings up the back end.

    Taste is somewhat mute. Not enough malt to give it much interest while the hops were stronger in the aroma.

    Light body with strong carbonation, creating a dry and crisp finish.

    A nice beer. Doesn't do anything extraordinary to the style. Light and crisp without any lingering bitterness. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • The Wild Trail Pale Ale is a medium bodied golden-amber ale. Featuring the choicest hops from the Pacific Northwest; lending to a robust mango, tangerine, and piney flavor. As well as dry hopped to add a slight floral and hoppy note. The robust hops are balanced by a blend of British floor malted barley and American 2-row. At a moderate 5.7% abv and 44 IBU’s, this is a flavorful, American Pale Ale. Enjoy at home or after an adventure on one of West Virginia’s wild trails.
