Day 44 Drink: Sierra Nevada 2010 Glissade Golden Bock
Sierra Nevada Brewing can trace its roots back to 1980 and is often credited among the early west coast pioneers that introduced craft beer fans to the power of hops.
Sierra Nevada 2010 Glissade Golden Bock is a 6.4 percent alcohol by volume beer that uses a combination of German Magnum, Perle and German Spalter; Slovenian Aurora and Styrian hops, along with two-row Pale, Europils, Munich and Crystal malts. The beer is a crystal clear golden color with a firm white head. The flavor has a nice malty backbone with a good level of hops for balance. Very smooth and drinkable.
