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.

Bottle. Pours a translucent reddish brown color with an inch of pillowy head. The aroma is mostly cereal malt and grassy hops with a little bit of honey. The taste starts with a slightly burnt toasted malt flavor followed by cocoa, roast nuts, sarsaparilla, citrusy hops and toast. Mouthfeel is light and medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry, bready finish. Even though Iím not a huge fan of Brown Ales, this is definitely one of the more original interpretations of the style Iíve come across.

Not a very interesting taste, was expecting to have a little more meat to it.

BelgianBeerGal (3856) - Panama City, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Draft at the KC F.S. This was a nice surprise since I had no idea what it was. Dark chestnut brown color with just a little white ring of foam. Aroma was nutty with roasted malts. More roasted nuts in the flavor and sweeter malts. Very tasty.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Clear dark red to brown pour. Nos is a nice blend of caramel, roast, nuts, maybe some earthy hop notes and just a little smokey character. Taste reveals some a lot if the same but more of the biscuit and smokey notes really come through. Starts sweet and finishes dry. medium body and carbonation. good and feels true to style.

matt7215 (2278) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
355ml bottle from jsprime. pours chestnut brown with an off white head that lingers and laces. perfet looking brown ale. aroma of brown malty ale: touch of nut, touch of chocolate, touch of smoke. the flavour is complex and leaning on the malt body. chocolate upfront with smoke in the back. hops balance but contribute very little else where. solid brown ale.

VAYankee (346) - Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Brown body with an offwhite head. Roasted malt, slightly hoppy, a little chocolatey aroma. Hoppy dry malt flavor with a mild smokiness and more bitterness than I prefer. Dry aftertaste. Overall overbalanced in favor of hops.

sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - SEP 11, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 Interesting beer. It pours brownish red with a small whitish beige head. Has a smokey malty smell to it. Starts off with a nutty chocolate malt flavor and transitions into a smokey bitter finish. Not your usual tame brown ale.

Bottle. Poured a clear brownish color, medium white head. Aroma was malty, touch of nut, chocolate. Flavor was nutty, malty. Palate was smooth, a bit thin. A decent beer for the weather it was consumed in.
