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.

Oakes (15483) - 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.

MiP (15247) - 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.

bhensonb (13980) - 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.

mcberko (13923) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy amber brown with a medium beige head. Light aroma of toasted nuts, cereal malt, light caramel and a subtle smoky quality. Flavour is quite muted, with light toasted nuts, bitter chocolate and light caramel. Finishes with a bit of a metallic note. Not so enjoyable, but drinkable.

FatPhil (13584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 21, 2010
350ml bottle (Black Door, Helsinki)
6 Slightly milky grain aroma, dry nutty leafiness too.
4 Reddy brown, small cream head.
7 Pleasant retronasals - quite complex, the wet sheep aspect is potent, but well integrated. Spicy, a little white peppery. Good balance.
4 Refresshing palat, carbonation quite high. Finish slightly wooly, dry bitter hops
13 Very drinkable, very well balanced. Not a brown ale really, but styles are fucked on RB generally.
