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.

A wonderful surprise. Most Brown Ales are just brown. This one from Sierra Nevada is worth trying. The ale poured with a small bubble head and a light brown color. The nutty aroma and smooth maltiness are the hallmark of a very good Brown Ale. There is just a hint of hops that adds balance with some bittnerness. The smooth slightly floral finish is the end of good ale.

Bottle pours a nice deep amber/red with a foamy tan head. Scent of smoke and hops. Nice mild flavor, solid!

Brown ale with a reddish hue, healthy carbonation and a light brown head that leaves behind a nice, thick frothy lacing. Hoppy malt aroma and a flavor just as hoppy with a nutty finish. The hops dosage and a hint of smoked malt gives this brown a really great autumn ale...

Pours light brown with a scant off white head. Nutty aroma. Smoky flavor with some light malt and floral hops. Unique brown. Pretty good.

Best American Brown that I have tasted in awhile. Sierra is right about the smooth: this is a beautiful malty brown with a slight Cascade hint lurking in the background

Slightly clear dark brown with almost no head. Aroma of malt and roasted grain. Roasted cereal grain and smoke taste with a leathery finish.

nearbeer (4781) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 19, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2010 Draft pint at Bearden Beer Market. Clear brown with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is mild, but has hints of toasted nut, light char, cocoa, and caramel. Flavor is stronger with smoke, but more of the same as the aroma, with a touch of orange and dry wood on the finish. Near-medium body is smoothly carbonated, lightly tingly and watery, balanced and very sessionable.

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Pours a clear dark iced coffee brown with golden highlights and a modest but persistent off-white head. Aromas of coffee, grains, brown sugar, and candied orange peel. Grainy sweet base with notes of chocolate, coffee, and orange; very slightly bitter herbal finish. Light body, creamy texture, soft to average carbonation. Pleasant, quaffable, and toasty.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Nice light sweet toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

Draft. Brown, thin head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is malty but not too much there. Flavor is a little more malt, I don’t get the chocolate or smoked malts the description boats of. Kind of plain but easy drinking and smooth. I could probably destroy some of these this fall when I just want to drink and not think about it.
