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.

Petkus331 (224) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2010
A tasty brew, not strong, but not weak, pretty much as expected for a brown ale. Enjoyable bitterness and dark brown color, this is a good brew. Went great with spicy cheese. Sierra Nevada is a great brewery.

adam42381 (372) - Fort Myers, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown color with ruby hints and a 3 finger soapy light tan head. Good lacing. Smell: Burnt malt with just a hint of caramel. Taste: Smoky roasted malt up front followed by sweet caramel in the middle and mildly bitter hops at the finish. Aftertaste is both smoky and bitter. Flavor, like the aroma, is a bit subdued. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Tingles a little on the tongue. Drinkability: Good drinkability. You could knock back a few of these without any trouble. Overall: Solid beer overall and a good representation of the style. Very solid choice for a crisp autumn day.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2010
Pours red-brown with full frothy head. Aroma is caramel, molasses, brown sugar, toasted malts. Flavor incorporates similar notes with the addition of a slight nuttiness and baked bread. Light, dry hop finish. Average body and mouthfeel, even carbonation. Excellent for the style. Session beer all the way.
