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.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pour is a nice dark amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is malty with notes of toasted biscuit, nut, caramel, and roasted malt. Flavor is malty with roasted malt and biscuit, followed by a hint of caramel. Hops are present, but not overwhelming. Overall a great brown for any Fall day.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours an attractive dark with a pale soapy head. The aroma is nutty and chocolate with a sense of alcohol. A nice nutty flavor accompanies some slight bitter hops. The finish is a touch dry.

dekester1 (327) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Poured a solid brown with a medium head that quickly faded to lace. Aroma was of slightly sweet malts and hops. Taste was similar with hops pervading throughout. Mouth feel was decent but nothing spectacular. Overall, this was decent, but like other brews from Sierra, the hops totally dominate. Itís kind of like, Iíll take a little malt with my hops.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Big old 24oz bottle pours clear amber with ruby hues and tan head. The aroma is a pleasing even mix of roasted malts, sweet malts and sweet nuttiness. Nice. The taste is similar with roasted malts and sweet malts running along side a firm note of nuttiness and a sense of burnt malts. I also get a mild level of pine hops off in the background. Darn tasty Brown.

If you can take autumn and bottle it up, I think it would taste like this beer.

SpringsLicker (3172) - Tennessee, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Pours a clear medium/dark brown body with a frothy off-white head. Caramel malt aroma with just a touch of hops. The flavor has some light roast malts with a slight underlying hop bitterness. A very nice brown ale.

JStax (3316) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2010
As much as I wanted this beer to be amazing, it was a bit of a let down. Donít get me wrong, I enjoyed this beer a great deal, I just feel that it could have been better. Pour is a deep brown with a thin trace of a head. Almost no carbonation. The most noticeable aspect of the taste was a taste of burnt malt. This gives the beer an extra heartiness that may have otherwise been lost. There is not much of an aftertaste. Even though this beer is not one of high alcohol content, it is still complex enough to be a sipper. Itís worth buying the six-pack if you can find it.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear light brown color with a one finger thick light tan head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is cramel malt with hints of smoke. Flavor is slightly astringent caramel malt. Finish is kinda dry and thin. A decent beer.

ronaldtheriot (1374) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Sierra Nevada Tumbler has a thick, beige head and a clear amber-brown appearance. The aroma is sharp, but not strong, and there is a spiciness to it. Flavor is of deep-roasted barley malt, it does have a decent hop bite to it underneath. Mouth-feel is light, and this ale finishes satisfying and refreshing. Overall, this is an outstanding brown ale, even though thereís nothing here I have not had before in this sub-category. RJT

flatmatt (1177) - Northville, Michigan, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with an off-white head; lighter than expected. Aroma has light roastiness with coffee. Roasty flavor with coffee and toasted grain. A decent brown ale, but not a lot of excitement here.
