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.

Den spritt språngande smakgalenskapen som är något av Sierra Nevadas adelsmärke går här i koppel med mindre svängradie i uttrycket. För personer som är helt förtrampade efter att ha tacklats av Bigfoot är Tumbler en mer överkomlig utmaning. I den här viktklassen jabbas det mest. Ett öl som beter sig som en gentleman och därför är lätt att gilla, men som aldrig slår andan ur en.

Pours a nice dark amber body with a medium head. Flavours full of jam and marmelade. A somewhat strange taste...

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2013
This seasons batch. 2011 A: Pours a brown ale with a single finger of peanut head which depresses down to a sheet of the same with lingering larger pubbles. The foam hugs the rim. Near excellent clarity with cherry hues where available. S: Roasty, nutty and herbal. I’m not particularly interested in trying to identify any further on this one. The smell is pleasant. T: Taste is somewhat oaty for me, a little reminiscent of the smell of livestock feed. Not bad, but pretty specific for my palate. I like the memories it elicits. M: Medium on velvet for the body with greatly subdued yet effective carbonation. O: Good beer, not my fav, but good. Serving type: bottle 09-04-2011

Beer4000 (4322) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 15, 2013
335 ml bottle. Clear, deep amber body with a tan head. Moderate aroma of light roasted malt, caramel with a hint of chocolate and dry fruit. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, light toast, chocolate and moderate bitterness. Fine body and decent aftertaste. Not a big fan of brown ale, but this is a fine, quite tasty really smooth one within its style. Very quaffable as well.

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
Tap at the Black Heart, Camden, 13/12/13. Reddish amber with a thin off white covering/swirl that dissipates to edgework. Nose is a little muted carrying fruit notes and caramel although picked up a little in depth as the beer warmed slightly. Taste comprises Ribena Berry fruit, caramel malt, biscuit, hoppy back notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, drying closure with light fruit notes. Ok stuff, easy drinking affair.

12oz bottle from Drinkmonger, Pitlochry. Dark chestnut brown, decent head. Treacle malt aroma. Toffee malt flavour. Smooth with sweet aftertaste. Good example of style but not my sort of beer.
