Shiner Trail Ale

This beer from Shiner, Texas, is a brown ale with chocolate, nuts, and dried fruit. This ale is brewed by Shiner beer in the Spoetzl Brewery. This beer was sent to me by KLG Public Relations. This ale is a relatively new beer from Shiner. This ale pours a deep brown color with a two-finger foamy beige head that slowly dissolves. The aroma is sweet, chocolaty, and nutty. The flavor is similar to its scent. With chocolaty sweetness, and nutty notes, it’s also salty, and there’s a bit of cherry. The mouthfeel is slightly fuller. Then this brown ale finishes with a nutty and semi-chocolaty flavor. Then you come to an aftertaste of salty, nutty chocolate flavors. This beer is interesting to me. I give Trail Ale. B-. All the flavors lean on the lighter side, and I think a brown ale shouldn’t, especially one with a nutty chocolate flavor. But that’s all I really can say negatively about this Shiner beer. I would recommend trying it. Please stay safe, be kind, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
