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.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear brown with a minimal beige head. Nutty nose, with earth notes, light caramel and faint chocolate. Soft roasty flavors, medium bitterness, nuts, brown sugar. Slightly over carbonated, pretty balanced but lacks some maltiness. OK.

Fantomasus (288) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark caramel/cola with a light tan head that dissipates. Slight aromas: caramel, iced coffee, floral, dough, and some vanilla. Like most of the Sierra stuff, very balanced flavor. Clean palate with some sticky. Decent.

Rated from notes taken 18 Sep 2012 -- A great fall beer. Drinking this makes me feel like the leaves are changing colors around me and I need to bundle up. A great fall seasonal, one of the best (that isnít a pumpkin).

Ok I love seasonal beers and it is almost time to switch over to Winter Warmers & Christmas beers so I figured I move fast and have my Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale. This is my first Sierra Nevada in quite a while! Bottle served in a pint glass it pours a clear deep mahoganey brown with a foamy beige head that lasts quite a long time. A nice aroma of toasted malts, some nuttiness, brown sugar and maybe a touch of cacao. Medium bodied with quite a lively carbonation makes it pop in your mouth. The taste is sweet toasted malts, a bit bready with some nuttiness and a mild coffee bean/cacao bitterness in the finish. It is quite a satisfying beer for a not terribly exciting style - good work.

Cakes (401) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 28, 2014
12 oz bottle. Probably the best looking brown ale that I have ever seen, and easily the best brown ale that I have have over the past two years. Pours an amber brown color with off white head.. Tastes of:Malt, nut, caramel and toffee aroma. Caramel, nut, toffee, malt and biscuit flavors. Medium light body and moderate carbonation. Toffee and biscuit finish. Outstanding.

foyle (334) - Wyoming, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: 2+" frothy cream colored head, mostly clear dark reddish-brown with tons of streaming carbonation. Aroma: yeasty bread dough, a bit of smoke, some floral and citrus, a bit of toffee and raisin. Mouthfeel: medium bodied, somewhat slick, with a dry finish. Flavor: rich roasted malts, some citrus rind and floral hops, a bit coffee and raisin, a lingering smokey finish. Overall: I really enjoy brown ales, but am not a fan of smokey flavors. I canít really criticize the beer, but it not to my particular tastes due to the smoke. I would probably rate it much higher without the smoked malts.
