The Full Review

Some people like dirt back roads and the great outdoors, others just like the idea of dirt back roads and the great outdoors. Alpine Beer Co.'s Truck Trail Ale is for both. Truck Trail Ale is an easy drinking pale ale that satisfies whether you're taking a long hike through the woods or sitting at your desk wishing you didn't miss happy hour. It's one of Alpine's first forays into cans, and the name pays tribute to the Anderson Truck Trail in Alpine, Calif. The mix of Cascade and Centennial hops adds pine and citrus notes while the forward bitter flavor is balanced out by sweet malt. It's reliable, sessionable, bitter, balanced, and just piney enough to add flavor without making you feel like a tree muncher. If you don't like it, well, you're probably one of those people who claps when your plane lands.
