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.

Bottle from Bierzwerg, at home. Nice dark brown colour with medium beige head. Aroma is good. Nuts and malts mostly. Taste is good with nuts, bread and malts! My girlfriend also said chestnuts!!! Light and medium aftertaste. Overall, a good beer that iíd like to drink again.

Bottle, Honolulu. Clear brown in color with foamy, light tan head. A solid, safe beer. Not much up front, some hints of bitter chocolate and slightly bitter on the back, but not the usual SV over hopping. I enjoy this beer and it will be good in early autumn when it is still a little warmer.

Dark appearance, but turns a yellow ochre when held to light, minimal lacing. Taste is a flat Pepsi flavor, smooth maltiness, very subtle nutty flavor. Dissipates quickly on palate.

Fairly bright brown. Not a ton of nose. Sharp initial bite, not particularly balanced but okay. Wish it had more flavor. Decent smooth mouthfeel, not enough malts for my taste buds. Very dry. This one is fine, but definitely not an all-time favorite from Sierra Nevada. Cool label, great Autumn vibe.

Bottle from SB. Big tan head. Dark brown, almost red in color. Aroma of coffee, orange, nuts and leather. Well balanced and pleasant in the mouth.

Thanks Sierra. Pours a deep amber brown with a small thin head. Aroma is of caramel malts and some floral hops, which suprised me. Too often with these autumn brown ales there is no hop character whatsoever, this one has bite. The flavor is rich creamy caramel malts which flows into a plesent bitter, some cirtrus hop is there in the beginning as well.

Pours a dark brown, filtered. Small head is decent, excellent aroma of Nutty and warm roast malt. Donít get any chocolates here but fantastic nut roasted malt and a last minute hint of coffee finish. Not dry and not hoppy. Excellent amongst that which is called brown or nut brown. Well worth the 9 bucks a sixer. Pry off cap.

Appearance is a dark translucent brown. Head is off white, small. Good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and malts. Tiny bit of brown sugar and earthiness. Taste is coffee, caramel, bread, malty and finishes with some crisp hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, yet gives some bite on the tongue. Overall this is one of my favorite autumn browns. It feels and looks like fall.

Nice beer. Canít go wrong with a Sierra Nevada, so glad itís reaching mainstream status. Nice brown color, decent head and aroma. Just enough bitterness and hops with 0 zero traces of sweetness. I canít think of anything better to say then: "This tastes like beer." And a good one, at that.
