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.

medium brown with mild white head. nose of medium crystal malt. carbonation is far too high for the style guideline. mild bitterness before medium crystal malt and some chocolate without much roast and little flavor hops. a dry finish and the high carbonation gives this beer a rather insipid malt flavor and without much hop presence the brew ends up lacking in flavor. i imagine it would be an enjoyable effort if the carbonation was drastically decreased

Purchased a 6íer on S.N. reputation. What I got was a beer that is drinkable, but not distinguished in any appreciable way. Some nice flavors going on here. Itís okay for a lazy summer evening session.

IrishBoy (3871) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 27, 2010
12 oz bottle from Enniskillen and BevMo Salinas. Nose is wheat toast, toffee, and some coffee, but not really very strong aromawise. Clear red brown with a small beige head. Flavor is nutty, light bitterness, and toffee.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 27, 2010
24oz bottle. Pours copper ruddy brown with thick light tan head. Earthy hops, some yeast, and smooth toffee malts in the aroma. Flavor starts malty crusty toasty with some spicy earthy hop flavor. Light sweetness towards back with touch of chocolate and soft nutty malts. Finish is bready with touch of chocolate and honey sweetness. Moderate balancing hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp with touch of sharp carbonation and sticky sweet full body. Overall - sweet but balanced.

24 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a copper/brown color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is brown sugar, caramel, toffee and toasted malt. The taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís the addition of some pine hops and a bit of nuts and smoke. Thereís also a slight lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís a little bit creamy and has moderate carbonation. Drinkability is good, itís smooth and quite enjoyable. Itís an interesting brown ale, I certainly didnít expect the balance between the malt and hops in this brew, I thought for sure it would be maltier. Itís a pretty decent brew overall, and for $2.99 a bomber I think itís a good deal too. Iíd buy this again.

i didnít know men could do that... Pours a dark fudge .. good head .. simple in the mouth but quite flavour packed- roasted nut shell and molasses on the tongue.. . a very well done brew from SN .. . maybe itíll be an open-book test..

Bottled. Poured Brown, mild head, a bit watery. Malty and nutty aroma and pretty standard for a brown ale.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2010
12 oz bottle from the Binnys Singles Rack (Orland Park, IL). Pours a roasty brownish copper, some glow to it, ligyht haze, a big khaki head sits atop and cakes, dies to a decent layer, laces ok. Aromas are some pretzels and light toastiness, some earthy malts paired with a touch of cocoa and bread. Simple, touch of floral hopping. A big vague. Initial is lighter bodied offering toasty malts and cocoa, some sweeter toffee, touch of vanilla, earthy tobbacco is light and provides a touch of smokiness, earthiness. Some bread, light toffee, light floral hops on the backend provide a touch of bitterness to this lighter yet toasty and malt forward brew. Not bad a bit forgettable though. Still, quite drinkable if not lighter fare. Would be great at 1% ABV less, I bet..

A nice reddish brown with a tan head. Toasted malts, caramel, light chocolate, some toffee, too. A little bit of hops on the finish. Smooth but with a little bit of carbonation on the tongue as it goes down. Real nice brown.

Bottle. Pours a lovely brown with a small light tan head that lingers and laces. Smells of malts and autumn leaves. Flavor is a bitter nuttiness, some roasted leafy notes, and finishes with a bitter bite.
