COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rated on 4-03-2010 (Bottle) This beer pours a small fizzy white head with a short retention, transparent yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is malty, grainy, hops, spicy, and crisp. The taste is malty, grainy, bready, hops, crisp, and refreshing. The palate is lively carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is quaffable and refreshing.

Si sente il tocco di Sierra Nevada, che prende una helles proletaria e ne fa una spensierata senorita californiana, ma a dirla tutta non mi ha impressionato. Interessanti le note floreali e erbacee del gusto, ma per il resto nessun virtuosismo che ci si aspetta dalle interpretazioni americane di classici stili tedeschi. Ciò non toglie che si tratta di una birra piacevole e beverina.

Not an award winner by any stretch of the imagination, but it seems like this style is the go-to for brewers looking to fill the Spring range just after winter finishes. Clean, crisp, sweet bready malt forward despite what the label says, just enough hop notes to be present. Drinkable but nothing special.

harrymel (1450) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2013
A: pours light golden ale with excellent clarity. Single finger loose head dissipates to nada. No lacing. S: smells like sweetened malts and hints of noble hops. Very earthy, yet subtle. Nice. T: grainy, earthy, hints of florals. Quaffable. M: medium body with middle of the road carb. O: good example of the style. Nice and rounded with great potential as a session ale. Serving type: bottle 04-03-2011

I’m currently rating every SN brew I’ve ever had in one clean sweep. I grew up on the classic SN Pale having it around during high school, and since have watched SN grow into a national representation of incredible craft beer. Living 45 mins away is a treat for the random growler fill. Keep up the amazing work and thanks!

A bright bock beer. Not my favorite from Sierra Nevada, but its a solid addition to their output. Honey, bread, with some grassy hops.
