Sierra Nevada Beer Camp Across America There And Back

We’re finally down to the last Beer Camp beer. I didn’t leave this one for last for any reason in particular. It’s another collaboration from a brewery that I’ve never had anything from, but really wish that I had. Their stuff is written up constantly and I wish I could get more. Maybe if I ever travel to the Midwest, I can grab some. In terms of the style, it’s been over two years since I’ve had a beer of the style, so it’s definitely worth a revisit. Let’s crack it open.

ABV: 5.6%

Style: English Bitter

Trivia: This beer was brewed in collaboration with New Glarus Brewing Company.

Random: The Eagles better win tomorrow. It would be sad if Jacksonville beat them.

This brew poured with a half a finger of white head that was quite thin. It took awhile to dissipate, yet left no lacing on the glass. The body was a clear copper color with very heavy carbonation visible. The nose was light with nuttiness and caramel malt and a touch of light hop. Bread was present as well. The flavor was much more hop forward than expected. I got herbal and earthy hops that transitioned into bready and sweet malt with brown sugar. Nuttiness was present as well. I would go with hazelnuts specifically on this one. Bread was present at the end of the sip as well. The body was thick for the style with heavy carbonation. It had a long finish with brown sugar and malt. This was an alright beer, but nothing impressive. I wouldn’t rush back to have this again.
