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.

Bottle, bought @ Ørsted Ølbar, Cph.
Pours a nice chestnut with a big, frothy, off-white head. Mild caramelly aroma with some hazel, a little piney hops. Lowish carbonation, fin dry and rather creamy palate. Flavour is quite elegant. Good fruity hops, resiny and grapefruit with a fine caramel malty base. Good, even if it still is a brown ale...

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle from a local grocery. WTF! The label subtext is Autumn Brown Ale. Pours a very ruddy copper with a 4 finger foamy beige head. Aroma is hoppy with that roasted malt common to brownish ales. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is medium roast malt, fairly smooth, with some floral and herby hop bitter. Flavor is good. For some reason the nose goes towards wet dog. But this is a brilliant ale. A brown with character and style. Lots of flavor things going on. How do they f...in do this stuff. Sierra Nevada is putting out great beer after great beer. Nice change from the years of same old same old.

Tmoney99 (10076) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweety malt and smal hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that I would recommend to a freind.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a nice deep, rich brown color with a solid off-white head. S: There is a weird aroma to this beer. Roasted, almost burnt, nuts, sulfur, butter, toasted malts, and a mild sweetness. T: Immediately there is a noticeable astringency to this beer. Burnt and bitter nuts, slight sulfur, and a bit of toffee and caramel sweetness. M: The body is slightly watery and thin, with a moderate level of carbonation. D: A really disappointing effort from a brewery that is nearly bulletproof. And it’s even worse because it is replacing a solid offering.
