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.

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.

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.

Dark amber color with a creamy tan head. Aroma is very malty and spicy. Sweet on the front of the tongue with a slightly hoppy-bitter finish. Smooth finish.

TJay7481 (80) - Altamonte Springs, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2011
A nice brown ale. Pours a medium brown color. Aromas of malt and nut. Flavor of caramel nut and coffee. Can taste the hops a but more in this one that other browns that I had had before. But in a good way. A solid brown ale.

Slimbrundage (80) - USA - OCT 12, 2010
Deep mahogany. Nutty roasted malts, light coffee, a bit matalic. Medium to full mouthfeel. Slightly nutty with mild hop bitterness and a pleasant finish. Easy to drink and well made if unremarkable.

Could use more aromatics but has viscous mouthfeel, toffee, caramel, coffee, and all around good matliness. A little sugary? I enjoyed this beer.

Not terrible buy not much to it. Very bland for a brown or for a fall seasonal. Watery with a little toffee, not much roastiness. Drinkable though. The high rating for this is baffling. This is one of the blandest browns and blandest sierra nevada brews.
