COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sierra Nevada uses malt within days of roasting at the peak of its flavor to give Tumbler a gracefully smooth malt character. Two-row pale, crystal 40, chocolate and smoked malts give it a malty complexity. Challenger hops in the boil add balancing bitterness, while more Challengers and some Goldings give just enough hop flavor in the finish to balance all that malt.

Pours deep reddish brown with a thin white head, malty aroma and smooth with subtle roasted flavours. I like it a lot and could drink a heap of it.

12 oz. To pint glass. Pours a medium brown with a long lasting off white head. Aroma is mostly caramel. The major taste not is of malt (roasted). Not what I was expecting

Appearance is deep brown, hazy, with minimal foam cap. Aroma is toasted malt. Hop aroma is minimal to unnoticed. Taste is deep roasted malt. Very toasty and slightly nutty. Typical brown ale malt character with just enough hops to balance. Mouthfeel is light to medium, low carbonation. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness to balance the malt. Leaves a toasted malt flavor on the tongue.

My least favorite of the Sierra Nevada offerings, but still enjoyable. Paired great with a steak.

stravale (2099) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 30, 2014
Keg @ Black Sheep, Dublin [210114]
Chestnut brown, clear, off white thin head
Aroma - not getting much at all, hint of fruity caramel
Taste of caramel malts, sweet caramel, toffee, some red berry fruits, bit boring for a Sierra Nevada beer
Palate - Medium carb, light body, bit too fizzy. Finish as main flavour, soft caramel, toffee
Overall - OK, nothing special
