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.

on tap.finalmente una birra della sierra che non sia improntata solo di luppolo ma con un buon equilibrio con sentori fruttati e maltati.un buon corpo e molto beverina,nel finale anche amarognola.

Clear brown pour. Light beige head. Aroma is nutty and loads of crystal malt. Slight chocolate. Taste is nutty cocoa and caramel with earthy notes up front. Palate is thin when cold but as it warms it develops a medium bodied feel. Interesting brown.

Dark brown, nearly opaque. Aromas of woodsmoke and sweet bread. Very Autumnal... perhaps I should wait until the weather cools down to sample this again. Anyway, the flavor is sweet caramel, a touch of smoke, and hops bitterness on the back end. Syrupy mouthfeel. Would be perfect around a campfire with trees turning orange in the mountains. Does Sierra Nevada ever brew a bad beer?

This Beer has a brownish golden color. It has a very full flavour, and packs it with a medium body. I think I detect a touch of something woody, or at least something that reminds me of wood. Maybe some dry sweet straw on the back end? It reminds me of walking on dry autumn leaves!

Mr_TBone (168) - Hollywood, California, USA - NOV 27, 2012
Solid - this is one of my favorite autumnal beers I can get. Roasty character from the more toasted malts, and not too nutty. Good, solid, well rounded beverage.

eruizgarcia (165) - - JUN 2, 2013
Pours very dark amber with a thick frothy head that lasts forever. Sweet malts with some hops for balance. Pretty good flavor and easy to drink but just a tad watery mouth feel, nothing really special.

ALCOHOLNIZM (164) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - OCT 25, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2010 BROWN ALE’S ARE SOMEWHAT A THING OF THE PAST BEFORE THE MODERN DAY MICRO BREWERY THEY WERE STRICTLY MADE IN ENGLAND BUT DIED OUT MANY MANY YEARS AGO. TODAY’S MOST NOTABLE BROWN ALE IS NEW CASTLE BUT THANKS TO THE BEER REVOLUTION GOING ON TODAY IN THE STATES THERE ARE A FEW OTHER OPTIONS AND BROWN ALE HAS MADE A COMEBACK WORLD WIDE. THIS ONE POURS A NICE BROWN COLOR WITH THIN CREAMY TAN HEAD, IT HAS A NICE LACING YET LIGHT ON AROMA. WITH A BITTER ROASTED NUTTY FLAVOR THATS QUITE PLEASANT YET NOT A STAND OUT IN ITS CATEGORY . FLAVOR MUCH LIKE AROMA IS VERY LIGHT. GOOD BEER YET NOT GREAT BUT STILL VALUED WELL.

Tjoxen (163) - SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2012
Purs dark brown with tanned head. Aroma of dark chocolate and malt. A bit roasty. Taste of dark chocolate, nuts and roasted malt and bread. A bit oily texture with a nice roasty finish. Good brown ale.
