Sierra Nevada Brewery have just released their 'Best of Beer Camp' selection for 2011. The selection includes a California Common, a Double IPA, a Weizenbock and a Juniper Black Ale. As with all beers from this brewery they should be full of flavours and with a pretty high alcohol content.
Friday was a lovely Melbourne day and I finished work early, what better time to try these beers! I had a mates birthday in the evening so Richo came over to enjoy the beers with me, for a couple of pre's. It was going to be a fun evening!
The flavour blew us away, this tastes alot like a fruity pilsner. It had quite a sweet malty bread texture but the overwhelming pear and citrus flavours were exactly what the day called for. It was incredibly crisp and smooth and you couldn't tell that it was 6.5%. It has a very nice dry finish, and I couldn't fault it. It's one of the best beers I've ever had!
