UPDATED: SEP 13, 2010 Interesting beer. It pours brownish red with a small whitish beige head. Has a smokey malty smell to it. Starts off with a nutty chocolate malt flavor and transitions into a smokey bitter finish. Not your usual tame brown ale.

A good nut brown ale on the hoppy side like most Sierra Nevada brews.
Aroma was chocolatey and smokey with some caramel and nut and the hops.
Appearance was pretty brown color that reminded me of leaves changing. Starts with a slightly fizzy off white head that comes down quick with some lacing.
Taste was chocolate with a slight smokey chestnut flavor. It was not overly sweet and a tad hoppy. Not bitter though.
Finishes nice and was medium bodied. Good flavors throughout and holds up well until the last sip.
Definitely a worthy nut brown.

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.

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

Poured out of a bottle, clear brown with little off white head. Nothing too special but still a nice brown ale. Mild malty carmel aroma. Crisp, dry, chocolate, carmel, toasted flavor. Would have again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Light yet full flavored brown ale that make me yearn for the cool weather and colors if autumn. Well made year after year.

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.
