always reliable Sierra Nevada brewery....not a huge fan
of bock beers...they cant seem to make they mind up what
the suds wanna be...is it a Pale ale?...IPA?...Lager?
Well, it's a bit of all three, really.
Also, the rave review Neil X posted yesterday had me
concerned...sure, he knows his way around brews...
make NO mistake...but then this kid is also way into
middling shit like Blue Oyster Cults 1973 stumble
"Tyranny and Mutation" and 3am alcohol fueled runs
down to the Beacon Street 7-Eleven for 99 cent chilli
cheese dogs and Mr Pibb Slurpees.
Questionable track record to be sure.
On to the brew then.
Medium straw color....nicely carbonated...upfront maltiness...
mild bitterness on the tongue...not cloying at all (which I feared)
No....nice clean aftertaste....I like the hops up in here!
Gotta say...this is ANOTHER winner from Sierra Nevada.
Very nice beer, indeed.
