Very unique beer, and I agree with the Bros on this - it is a must try. In short, a great looking beer with a great malt taste and excellent finish.

Appearance: A beautiful beer! The color of cream soda with a very deep foamy head that lasted several minutes and then graced the glass with ample lace long after the drink was finished - as any great malt beer should.

Smell: Smells like a toasted wheat bread crusts. I am guessing what I am picking up is the smoky roasted malt aromas. But there is a nutty element as well.

Taste: Complex and medium-bodied. The balance definitely tips to heavy sweet malted overtones, however, there is a sharp bitter hops contrast which complements the sweet, roasted, and smokey flavors. The bitter hops was quite unexpected for a roasted malt beer, but I enjoyed the contrast.

Mouthfeel: The weakest element of this beer. I picked up a strong metallic or tinny flavor which lingered long after a swallow. It kept me chasing more sips to wash out the finish. Which I guess is not a bad thing given the beer's overall flavor. It also was a bit heavy on the carbonation for a brown ale.

Overall: SN Tumbler is extremely well crafted. The superior look, smell, and taste overcomes any weaknesses in finish and mouthfeel.

I will definitely be looking to get this again when the amber leaves are falling off the trees and we are enjoying a little evening campfire. I encourage you to do the same!
