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.

egajdzis (5487) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, some citrus, roast, nuts, and caramel. Taste of roasted malts, some piney resin, caramel malts, tobacco, nuts, and a hoppy finish.

RickTStiles (813) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Pours clear dark amber with a creamy white head. aroma is light consisting of quasi citric and malty notes but there is really very little to smell. Taste is fine, a bit roasty with some caramel qualities, but again subtle. very little finish aside from some spices. A perfectly palatable but somewhat boring beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 10, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours amber brown with a dense off white head. Aroma of baking bread, nuts and toasty malt. The flavor is sweet caramel and biscuity malt with a nice smooth hop bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry mouth feel. Overall this is a nice brown ale, the bready, biscuity, caramel malts are in the fore front with the hops only there for bitterness.

keokani (20) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Aroma: caramel, chocolate, coffee, roasty, earthy. Appearance: amber, brown, black, clear, sparkling, minimal head, white foam, tan foam. Taste: light sweetness, lightly bitter. Palate: medium body, oily feel, fizzy. Overall: The roasty malt character dominates this beer. The complex notes include caramel, chocolate and coffee. The flavor is somewhat rich, yet light and very drinkable. This is a fantastic brown ale! Since I didn’t have a brown ale on my list of favorites, Tumbler is now it. This is also a great session beer, right up there with the likes of Black Butte Porter and 1554.

kidmartinek (3741) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Nice malt nose. Dark brown in the glass with a small white head. The taste is slighty chocolatey and very delicious. Mild hoppy finish. More delicious than i thought it was going to be.

rayOfBeer (672) - El Cerrito, California, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Poured from bottle a clear brown with large-sized white head. Aroma is bread and lightly roasted grain with some sweet malt. Flavor comes in with a light sweetness followed by a mild bitterness and ends with a large dose of salty. The palate has a nice fullness and sticky. Overall it is to my liking and I could drink a lot more of this kind.

Stellaaaa (258) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Pours a dark amber with a moderate, creamy head. It has a nice malty, yeasty aroma. The taste is of dry, bitter malts. I got a slight hefe-yeast taste in the finish which detracted some, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.

Pours a nice brown with a small off white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts, spices,. Flavor is caramel, nuts, spices. Thin bodied with a lingering nut flavor and not much malt sweetness. Decent easy to drink session brown.

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Thanks to Rogue for sharing a bottle. The beer is a clear dark copper-brown color with a medium light beige head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing. Roasted malt, nuts and brown sugar in the nose. Medium body with a sweet roasty malt flavor along with notes of caramel, nuts and cocoa. The finish is malty with a sweet aftertaste. Decent overall.
