Either my six-pack is bad, or I just wasn't expecting the taste of this beer. I poured it into a pint glass. Looks good, light lacing, nice head. Smelled it - smelled like beer. Ok, great. Off to a good start.
The taste...I'm sorry, there's no way of getting around it, but it tastes like Pabst Blue Ribbon. Or some other cheap beer. Maybe I'm not familiar with this Helles Bock style, but I was expecting a sweetness you find in most bocks. This seems very carbonated and bitter, and to me has almost no redeeming qualities about the taste.
I love Sierra Nevada, and tend to like most of their offerings. This one I can't stand. It's easily drinkable, but again, so is a Pabst. I've been trying all sorts of new beers and styles, and this is one I can't possibly imagine having again.
Please someone let me know if something went wrong with my six pack. I've tried two separate bottles and they're both the same. If it's SUPPOSED to taste really malty and bitter, then I guess I just don't like this sort of beer. Really disappointed I spent the money on this one, because like I said, I love Sierra Nevada.
