It’s not exactly Mai, but at least it’s starting to show signs of spring, even in our neck of the Plains. With the grill hot and rhubarb peeking through the soil on a sunny afternoon, yesterday seemed a good time to crack open a Sierra Nevada Glissade Golden Bock.
According to their label and website:
“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 fella was a little fruitier and hazier than the Boss Tom from a coupla days ago, delicious and drinkable. It’s a tasty beer that shows SN’s range–they’re more than a pale ale, and they’re more than a C-hop-lovin’ one-trick pony. Satisfying, indeed, on an early spring day.
