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.

yngwie (15380) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle, at Ølbaren. A dark golden to amber beer, topped by a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Slightly vegetal on the nose, with roasted malts and caramel dominating. Roasted, caramel flavor with some dried fruits. Medium to full body, quite dry. Nutty, caramel finish. Not much bad going on here, but as so many brown ales, it’s rather boring, lacking depth and failing to raise interest with me. 110527

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2011
355ml bottle from Utobeer. Dark brown colour with lasting beige head. Toasty malty aroma with dry and juicy malts on the nose. Wholemeal bread. With some 1930s jazz on the stereo, a weekend in front of me, this beer suited my mood. Understated, solid, easy going, hitting all the right notes. Just a chilled easy going, easy drinking malty brown ale. I do love Sierra Nevada as a brewery, love their beers and they still feel special to me. Good bready malty finish too with a touch of carbonation sting. lovely.

MiP (14447) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle, 5.5%. The aroma starts off surprisingly hoppy, later turns nicely roasted. Clear dark brown colour. Small off-white head. The flavour has a teaish hoppiness at first, but like the aroma, it turns roasted. The aroma has a better roasted note than the flavour, in my opinion. A nice and well-balanced beer.

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2011
Chestnut colour with a very large head. More or less a nutty aroma with light caramels. Full body, quite malty, with complex German dark bread notes, earthy/rooty flavours and just enough bitterness to balance it. Good brown ale.
