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.

Not at bad beer, not my favorite style. Has a smooth refreshing taste but it is a little watery.

Bottle from Drinkmonger. Hazy deep amber body with a medium beige head. Light carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of wood, lightly roasted malt and toast. Flavour of nuts, toast, roasted malt, biscuit and vegetable stock. Tastes just like a Bitter. Thin body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A solid beer, but a bit dull.

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours brilliantly clear with a 2-inch tan head which settles to 1/8 inch. The color is dark mahogany with a hint of red. The nose suggests coffee, wood, malt, and bread. The body is surprisingly light. Modest carbonation. The palate suggests toast, coffee, nuts, roasted malt, and earthiness. Decent lingering. Some Belgian lace does form. Thirst quenching, not moreish. The ABV is not noticeable. Very pleasant.
