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.

TheJester (2503) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
On tap at Cole’s. Lighter than some browns, with lotsa bubbles and a lingering head. All malt in the aroma. The flavour reveals that there is some complexity to the malt. There is nuttiness and toast, as there should be, but also some porter/stout qualities, such as milk chocolate, roast and smoke. A slight hioppy bitterness arrives in the finish. Very well done.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a mahogany brown with a lasting gray head. Aroma has notes of dark grains and bread with a hint of smokiness and molasses. Flavor is similar with a dark bread note that is complimented by a slight molasses note and a bit of smokiness in the finish.

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Nice flavorful brown. On he light side. Very solid. You can really taste the pale recipe in this. Bitter kick in the end. A bit more sweetness would be nice.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2010
bottle. pours a deep brown with a small off white head. lots of malt in the nose... some chocolate, sweet dark fruits and roasted malts. this is such a wonderfully balanced brown ale - tons of malts and just the right amount of hops to round things out. medium body with a creamy top layer... robust malts linger and flow through the lower portion of the mouth. more chocolate notes are prevalent followed by some caramel and light coffee. a light citrus bitterness balances the malts out on the finish. great new beer from Sierra Nevada.

halfonit (1319) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Pours a deep brown/amber color. Aroma is of malts, roastiness, nuts, and some sweetness. Flavor is of malts, some roastiness, molasses, and caramel. Leaves a sweeter malt finish.

nolankowal (938) - 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. Can’t wait to sip this through the fall, another recent brew Sierra Nevada has stepped up their game with, can’t wait to see what’s next.

Fratto (2845) - 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 (3058) - 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 (2398) - 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.
