After last year, I’ve been rather reticent to write up a beer tasting. But, well, the weather is getting rather “Spring-y” out there and, well, I’ve never seen this at my retailer. It’s a great time for a bock.
As winter begins its slide toward the sunny days of spring, we bring you Glissade Golden Bock to help you enjoy the ride. Glissade is a remarkably mellow take on the traditional spring bock. With restrained sweetness, we emphasize subtle malt flavor, balanced against delicate aromas of spicy and floral European hops. This complex balance helps Glissade slide across the palate—bracing us against the last cold nights of winter, while its bright golden color turns our thoughts toward spring.
Nice golden color with a white head. Bready, fruity aroma. Pretty big malty flavor with…not exactly subtle hops flavor, but understated for something from Sierra Nevada. I like it.
Here are some other impressions from the beer-o-sphere:
