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.

Fall harvest beer is the perfect label representing the mood and character of the Tumbler. A light roasted malt flavor and no over hoppy control. YUM

8.28.2011 - Houston, TX Bottle Light yet full flavored brown ale that make me yearn for the cool weather and colors if autumn. Well made year after year.

crhensel (138) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Poured a very deep rich brown with a short creamy head. Aroma was complex and heavy with roasted malt and hints of caramel. The first taste was heavy with the fast, bordering on smoke but mellowed nicely with time. Overall not a bad drink, just a little less sweet than other brown ales I have had, but I expect this from Sierra Nevada.

toby00777 (135) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
Pours brown with ruby highlights and a large, lasting head. Nutty and chocolate malt along with soft caramel, a bit faint. Roasty character. Still shows the nutty malt and the same faint chocolate. Finishes very dry with some spicy hops and a faint vegetal note. Too much carbonation

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

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.

illiniphil (130) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Pours a crystal clear dark copper with a minimal head but nice lacing. Overall a good but not great brown ale. I expected a more robust flavor to this beer that just wasn't there. Nice carbonation. The bottles label states the profile perfectly, "full of roasted malt flavor but delicate on the palate". For my taste....a little to delicate. Definately worth trying. I will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

24 oz bomber for $2.50? Ok A: Deep transparent ruby color with a massive billowy head. Retention is awesome, just not as dark as I expected. S: Lots of nuts, caramel malts, toasty aromas. Light dose of hops. Pretty subtle in general, but very refreshing T: Mellow but powerful. Excellent balance of hops, malts, and sweetness. Also a nice nutty flavor. Malts do a lot, and the hop schedule is near perfect. MF/D: Smooth, light, kind of creamy feel. Carbonation is pretty good, a great fall beer Notes: for a $2.50 bomber, this is well worth it. Definitely a good beer
