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.

circinus (225) - SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle 35 cl from Systembolaget. Clear dark chestnut with a white nice head. Sweet malty, slight mash, caramel, earthy, very nice fitting bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation, savory, slightly bitter finish. Nice!

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a generous white head, thick lacing. Aroma is bready, yeasty, and nutty. Toasted malt all the way to start, gives in to some nuttiness followed by a touch of astringency, but not off putting. Easily put down, mild carbonation. Overall a very good and interesting brown ale.

eruizgarcia (223) - - 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.

Hint of cinnamon and pumpkin spice smells. A little nutty and malty, but a little thin with no head. A slight bitter aftertaste. It looks and smells better than it tastes, but it’s not a bad autumn beer.

First off, love the bottle label. Feels like fall in a bottle. Smells hops, fresh roasted nuts, and carmel. Appearance is clear brown, 2 finger head dissipates to thin ring. Medium carbonation, tastes of nuts, hops, carmel, slightly sweet. Medium bodied, tan/cream head. Not a session brew, but a great way to spend a nice, cool Fall evening on the deck. Mostly hoppy witaste with chocolate malt to balance it out, very crisp, enjoyed with porkc chop and stuffing.

Malty sweet aroma, pumpkin or similar. Fairly balanced taste, a bit sweet that holds on.

This pleasant offering form Sierra Nevada is much subtler than the colour would suggest, particularly on the nose. It’s a lovely browny/ambery colour in the glass and has a little bit of malt and citrus in the aroma. The taste has some coffee and malt, with a lingering, mildly bitter finish.

CarlJonas (218) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2012
Dark copper, small off-white head. Toasty aroma with a bit of chocolate and a slightly dusty, earthy feel. Medium sweet, roasted flavour with the bitterness coming through in the aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. English brown ale is not my favourite style, but this was pretty decent..

Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Tap @ Puget Sound Pizza. Clear, dark amber pour with a minimal, off-white head leaving a coarse lace. Complex malt body: caramel, mushrooms, walnuts, toast, coffee and whiskey. Perfectly balanced between sweet, bitter and slight umami. Medium body and carbonation. Not the smoothest of browns as with the English examples, but better for it IMO. An American Brown Ale, and a fine one at that! Another winner from Sierra Nevada.

Good harvest ale that has a deeper brown to amber color. The head was white and fairly creamy. The taste has hints of caramel and honey and definitely tasted of an octoberfest like beer. Was much better on tap, you would get the sweeter notes more.
