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.

nolankowal (923) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Ruddy orange/red pour with a light tan head. Aroma of light smoke, burnt sugar,chocolate, a tinge of must, and a earthy/vegetal hop aroma. Flavors are quite nice, dry bitter hops weave in and out through light sweetness/earthiness... malty throughout, light smokiness. Medium bodied, a great balancing act of dry/bitter/malty/sweet weaves throughout the palate until it reaches a dry and satisfyingly bitter finish. Canít wait to sip this through the fall, another recent brew Sierra Nevada has stepped up their game with, canít wait to see whatís next.

Fratto (2589) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle from the Sierra Nevada rep at the Gingerman. Brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is pine hops, sticky, caramel, and some very light fruit. Taste is Woody, roasted, a nice hop tinge, and heavy malts.

mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a generous white head, thick lacing. Aroma is bready, yeasty, and nutty. Toasted malt all the way to start, gives in to some nuttiness followed by a touch of astringency, but not off putting. Easily put down, mild carbonation. Overall a very good and interesting brown ale.

keepersj12 (2627) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Nice brown. Has a nuttiness to it that is quite good. Light and easy drinking. Not a lot of aroma but a good beer flavor. Kind of a throw back.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle pours dark ruby brown with a thick frothy beige head. Aroma of toasty malts and some floral hops. Taste is slightly more hop forward than aroma but still has lots of burnt bread, pretty much as expected from SN. Finish is slightly bitter, body is quite smooth.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Pours brown with a lot of red highlights showing through and a small off-white head. Aroma of pumpernickel, dark rye toast, peat smoke, coffee, and black beans. Flavor shows a sweeter side with caramel, dark chocolate, coffee, pumpernickel toast, and tobacco. Finishes toasty with plenty of bitterness, caramel, and fairly intense roasty flavor for the style. Medium-light bodied and bubbly carbonation. SN coaxed a lot of flavor from this brew and it pays off bigtime. Definitely a nice brown ale with tons of flavor (and modest alcohol to boot!). Iíll be getting sixers of this all season long.

Bottle. Poured a darker brownish color with a smaller white head. Aroma was caramel, malts, toast, and nuts. Flavor was malts, bread, roasted flavors. Medium body, average carbonation. Great overall beer. Another winner from Sierra Nevada.

yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Sierra Nevada Tumbler is a clear, red-brown ale with a bubbly light khaki head that has excellent retention and lacing. It has a dry, wooden aroma with a green, botanical note. Itís medium bodied, soft and smooth with a dry, crisp finish that leaves the mouth a little chalky. It tastes well balanced, resiny and nutty with a green, leafy bitterness. Itís very smooth and drinkable.
