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.

Very tasty brown ale that is easy to drink and full in flavor. Nice toasty malts with a warm nuttiness. Refreshing for a darker beer and actually perfect for the warm August summer days at the pool or beach.

12 oz. To pint glass. Pours a medium brown with a long lasting off white head. Aroma is mostly caramel. The major taste not is of malt (roasted). Not what I was expecting

The Sierra Nevada Tumbler was a pretty standard brown ale overall. Its appearance was darkish brown with a slight tan head. Its mouthfeel was medium-bodied and its smell was overall a solid maltiness but nothing super strong. The taste was much like the nose-- just pretty average. I was hoping for something with a little spice, but maybe that’ll have to wait for he winter warmer.

pours perfectly... to be frank. 2 fingers fits perfectly into my pint glass. dark burnt amber color. Head clings to the side as it slowly slowly dissipates. smells of nice roasted caramel malts... actually has a ting of lager smell on it, that distinct lager smell... from the yeast... then nothing. taste... well, the taste is clean, crisp... not that that is a flavor, but not much happening here for me. a bit of the roasted malts, but otherwise, this is pretty bland and boring. Easy to sit and drink a few of these as the night goes on, but would switch to it later in the night as my tastebuds are falling asleep. meh.

My least favorite of the Sierra Nevada offerings, but still enjoyable. Paired great with a steak.

Appearance is deep brown, hazy, with minimal foam cap. Aroma is toasted malt. Hop aroma is minimal to unnoticed. Taste is deep roasted malt. Very toasty and slightly nutty. Typical brown ale malt character with just enough hops to balance. Mouthfeel is light to medium, low carbonation. Finishes with a nice hop bitterness to balance the malt. Leaves a toasted malt flavor on the tongue.

Nose is sweet toasted malt, grassy aromas, toffee, and a touch of citrus hops. Pours medium dark brown, can barely still see through witha ful inch beige head which clings to the side of the glass. Smoth waves of creamy sweetness and malt are followed by a slight bittering balance with a long hoppt finish at the end. Slightly balanced towrds the favor of toasted malt, but the undertow of hops , particularly at the end go very well. Caramel, nutty, toffee, choclate flavors with some sea salt, grass, and clover. Very tasty. Medium carbonation, easy drink , rich and satisfying while not being too heavy.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2010
BOTTLE from T.J.s Thin body, fizzy carbonation, malt sweetess with a somewhat ash-like taste in the roast. Minimal and slightly odd aftertaste. Drinkable, but surprisingly forgettable; esp. for a Sierra Nevada brew..BUY AGAIN? No
