Game Day Beer Review: Sierra Nevada Brewing's Glissade Helles Bock

(6.40% ABV). Served on draft into a goblet, Glissade pours a lustrous, deep gold color, with a head so thick you could cut it with a knife. The retention is pretty strong, too.  The beer's predominant smell is malts, with some citrus in the form of lemons and orange coming through, too, kind of like the first hint of  Spring. Some light hoppiness is also vaguely apparent. The beer is medium bodied in the mouth, with a crisp, bready flavor, and nicely carbonated to keep your interest piqued. I'm a fan, and could easily drink more than one of these -- and plan to!: B+.
