Sierra Nevada Glissade ’11

CIMG3320

This is one of the newest to Sierra Nevada’s lineup. This light bock features 2-row Pale, Europils, Munich, and Crystal malts with German Magnum and German Perle hops for bittering and German Spalter, Slovenian Aurora, and Styrian hops for finishing. So, there’s some new hops for me.

Stats:
Helles Bock. 6.4% ABV. 42 IBUs. California.

Fairly pale yellow. Head has large bubbles and fades quickly. Leaves no lacing. Lots of carbonation streams.

Hops and malt both hit the nose. There are some bready malts and light fruits. The alcohol does seem to come through a tad.

Light to medium bodied and high carbonation. Crisp beer.

Light fruits meet bready malts in a crisp, clean package. The only problem I have here is the slightly hot alcohol on the back.

Not bad, and worth buying. Crisp, hoppy lager. 86 points.
