Big Drop Brewing Co. Pine Trail Pale (<0.5% ABV | 6-Pack | 12oz.)
From the Brewer:
Alcohol-free Pale Ale. A delight for the senses, this beer delivers on all levels. Rosy floral aromas are immediate as you pour, with a light and limey citrus bite on the palate and a balanced but obvious bitterness to finish.
Serving Size: 12oz

I was ridiculously excited to try this beer. Big Drop had been anticipated in the US market in Jan 2021 and I counted the days til I could order... this only just slightly missed the mark for me. Only just. It’s a light, crisp and mellow beer that absolutely stands up to other pale ales. The lactose adds a mouthfeel that definitely makes you feel like you’re drinking leaded stuff. Where it fell short for me was in the carbonation. This wasn’t a deal breaker and I’ll happily buy again but will wait til I’ve got something to do while consuming rather than just sitting in front of a fire.
What a wonderful NA beer! As soon as I opened the can and started the pour, I could immediately pick up the piney aromas wafting delightfully from the glass. Beautiful light golden and crystal-clear appearance. Upon first sip, this is one of the more refreshing, lighter beers I have enjoyed. Plenty of body but still light on the palette. This will absolutely be a very tasty summer-time go-to beer when the weather starts to warm up. Great job, Big Drop!
