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.

Decent brown, but a little thin. Taste of caramel malts and sweetness on the pallet. Must drink it fresh.

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.

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.

Fevernova (222) - Willoughby, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2010
24 oz Bottle -- Pours dark brown with a medium off-white head. Aromas of Roasted malt, caramel, nuts, chocolate, and hops. Dry mouth-feel with some sweetness. Doesn’t taste nearly as good as it smells

sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - OCT 26, 2010
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.

Solid brown. Malt backbone with traces of hops. Good fall ale. In 2014 SN Fall mix pack. Once was regular seasonal offering until the vastly inferior flipside red came out. Needs to come back as a mainstay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jdskinns (220) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2010
On tap. Dark brown color with white frothy head. Smell is cleaning solution, caramel, and kind of salty. Taste is that of an average brown, nothing special really. Nothing I’m going to try again.

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a caramel amber brown with a short foamy cream head. Smells of subtle fresh hops, caramel, and nut with some very slight roasted malt. Tastes is a fine balance between an earthy hop crispness and a malt flavor backed with nut, toffee, bread, a hint of molasses, and a tad bit of smoke. Very nicely balanced and clean -- a nice session beer.

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.
