Sierra Nevada/Oskar Blues CANfusion Rye Bock (Beer Camp #7)
Sierra Nevada/ Oskar Blue CANfusion Rye Bock, Beer Camp #7. 7.25 ABV. 45 IBU.
Can #2 from the Beer Camp box.
Appearance: clear, caramel/tan coloration, slim, white head.
Aroma: soft, lightly spicy, bread-y, malt-driven, and just on the sweet side.
Taste: all that from the nose is right here on the tongue. All that spicy rye malt character in a bock bier. Light-medium bodied, nice and clean. Sweetness prevails. Just enough, not too much…or is it? If I can tolerate it, it's probably too sweet for most other people.
CANfusion. It's in a can and it's a fusion. Of….? Rye and bock? SN and OB? Or is it CONfusing? No, it's not that…but, it's clearly not a CANtender for top entrant in the Best of Beer Camp.
