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.

I love beer from Sierra Nevada but this one did not impress me. The aroma was somewhat nutty with hints of malts and barely, while the taste was a little bitter and somewhat boring. An o.k. drink, but I donít think Iíll buy it again

Murrow (93) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. Pours an amber-brown, white-tan head. Noticeable hop aroma with strong smoky roasted malt character. Savory, slightly sweet caramel flavor up front with hint of hop bitterness, finishing with crisp balance of malt and hops. Hint of alcohol on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. Rich, enticing beer that is very warming; a welcome experience as autumn approaches.

Really nice deep caramel look with a slightly smokey taste - thankfully not nutty just features the malt

rollingwood (91) - Maryland, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Pours a clear, dark amber/garnet liquor with an off-white head that persists, releasing a sweet aroma. The taste is medium-bodied and a mild and drinkable mix of hop and malt (the malts here conferring a pleasing subtlety). The medium finish sports traces of both hop and malt. Very drinkable; very sessionable.

If you can take autumn and bottle it up, I think it would taste like this beer.

Crille (90) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2014
Large white head, and a rich brown color. The nose is full of nutty and herbal notes, with a hint of roasted malts. I can taste toffee, chocolate and more roasted malts. I think itís little to thin and to much carb for me. But I really like it!

MacDouglass (88) - Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2010
Aroma: subtle yeast, subtle fermentation, bready; Appearance: a nice see-through brown, like stained walnut, medium tan head on pour; Taste: first taste brings with it the roasted malt flavor, but itís not too strong and complex, and it doesnít last long, good hoppiness, but it seems to clash with the malt rather than augment it, after several swallows, overall impression is a bit watered down, nothing is unappealing about its taste, but it leaves no strong impressions either; Palate: more boozy and bitter rather than rich and roasty, the hops linger but that malt does not, Iíd rather have it the other way around when Iím enjoying a brown ale; Overall: not one of my favorite Sierra Nevada selections and not one of my favorite brown ales, again, nothing unappealing, but nothing standout

ZR2Blazer (87) - Christiansburg, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Pours dark amber, maple syrup and malty tones in the aroma, nice 3 finger head with good retention and lacing. Balanced, finishes malty. Great chilly weather beer, this would make a great session beer during a football game.

steadyj (87) - Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2011
This beer pours out a nice reddish brown. Great just to look at during the fall. Minimal head with light lacing. The taste is nutty, roasted and bread malt and a slight bit of chocolate malt in there too. Balanced by a subtle hop finish. My main criticism is the mouthfeel is kind of watery. A solid beer from Sierra Nevada.

Dr_Butty (87) - SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2012
From the bottle pours deep brown with a bit of froth then goes flat. Modest if any aroma. Plenty of carbonation considering thereís no head. Sweetness but tastes a bit thin. Not really very good at all.
