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.

Clear cola brown with ruby highlights topped with a thick khaki persistent head. Surprisingly little aroma detected (perhaps too cold). Fait hints of toast and a very faint hop aroma ... as I mad my way through the glass I began to detect a whiff of black olives ... DMS? A wonderful but very slight smokey flavor coupled with faint toasty malt. Very smooth ... almost lager like. Medium bodied mouthfeel, medium-ow carbonation and no astringency. Lacks the malty robustness of a typical American Brown Ale but I really liked it once I adjusted my expectations. Almost lager like in smoothness . Pleasant non-overpowering malt flavors with just a hint of hops. I really like the touch of smoke. I wonder if actual smoked malt was used or this is just an artifact.

Bottle pours a dark brown with a frothy tan head. Taste: caramel malt, but overall not very sweet. Palate: dry and a bit of yeast.

12 oz bottle. Pours a very thin brown color with tints of red. Nutty and chocolaty notes. Decent for a brown ale.

Sparf (175) - Östersund, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2015
Nötig svag doft. Karaktäristisk maltarom med inslag av kakao. Brun färg. Ok skum. Tämligen söt och mycket maltig smak, lättrostad. Medelfyllig kropp och trevlig kolsyra. En bra amerikansk brun ale men ingen favorittyp.

lots of malt and hints of chocolate in the aroma. Malt, chocolate and some nuts in the taste with a crisp hop after taste. Very nice beer for the fall.

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.
