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.

Lawger (213) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost black with half a finger of light beige head that dissipates quickly. Fresh and toffee-like aroma with some chocolate, roasted malts, hay, crisp bread and some flowers in the background. Rather light on the palate with butterscotchy and lightly roasted notes. A pretty classical, decent and easy drinking brown ale without much bitterness but a decent length.

Kita (1368) - Koper, SLOVENIA - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle, 0.355l. Hazy dark brown color with thin creamy tan-like head and nice lacing. Aroma of caramel and mild roasted malt, raisins, herbal hops and notes of chocolate. Taste starts moderate sweet roasted malty and nutty, follows by refreshing dark fruits and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Few tumblers and you quickly start tumbling around...

From 12 ounce bottle/brown at Neon’s, tasted on December 19, 2014. Dark ruby/brown hue, medium tan head, nice sweet malty aroma, very good toasted malt/bittersweet flavor. Another well done SN beer.

Bacterial (2071) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Drank two bottles of this at a science thing last week in CA. Very malty with a pretty thick mouthfeel for something that is only 5.5%. I would probably prefer this fresh when there is more hop character.

Bulk_Carrier (2577) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Though retired. This is from notes. The appearance had a light brown head, reddish brown body, lacing tried to cling to pint glass. The smell had some roasted malts coming through in a smoky way, some light oak barrel woodiness to it, slight hops. The taste was sweet, smoky, roasty through previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, she sat at about a light to medium, fairly sessionable, smoky aftertaste and a dry finish. Overall, this was good for the style, and good to me. I will miss it, but maybe someday Sierra Nevada will bring it out of retirement.
