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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

aroma of a bar, and thatís not bad! coating of wood and spice like cinnamon but without the cinnamon flavor. malt, a bit sweet and a light dishwater with lemon soda wafting in and out. tastes brown and that aint bad either. a hard catagory for me to enjoy.
