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.

BrettTaylor (738) - Radford, Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2013
Poured from bottle. Pours a rich brown with light tan head. The head dissipates quickly leaving moderate lacing. Aromas of chocolate, malt, and slightly bready. Tastes are a bit of coffee, chocolate, and a bit of caramel. Finish is fairly long and is slightly nutty.

12 ounce bottle, drunk straight from the bottle. Some sugar in the initial taste. A bit of burnt candy in the finish. Not great

mcox90 (1904) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 6, 2016
12 oz. bottle, part of a mixed 12 pack, picked up on sale at a local grocery store. Thatís one of the things I like about Sierra Nevada, itís always decent beer and you can always find it on sale. Anyway, beer pours a clear cola brown with some red highlights and a one finger fluffy beige head. Toffee, caramel aroma. Flavor is sweet. Malt forward with a full, smooth body. Easy drinking.

furthur (903) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle from LaBodega, clear brown beer, nice cream colored head. Aroma malt, coffee, fresh bread. Taste is malt, coffee, roasted barley. Super clean, palate is not heavy, carbonation moderate. Classic brown ale.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Brown to umber in color. Taller tan head. Pale to toasted malt with a toasted marshmallow background. Lightly sweet start Simple toasted malt along with a growing bitterness. A touch nutty. I donít get much depth out off this one. A decent brown ale, but not much more. Interesting that of the two brown ales tonight, I enjoyed the Brass Ass much more, my expectations were tilted the other way. 4/10

Pours a nice dark brown color. Aromas of chocolate/mild tobacco/coffee. Slightly bitter with hints of nuts/chocolate and maybe a touch of smoke. Excellent beer.

Listigovers (907) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2016
Brown pour, head leaves a nice lace. Smells liek some rank hops and a bit of chocolate. Flavour is nice and palate is medium and super smooth. Mild and flavourful at the same time, toasty, well balanced, thirst quenching. Great beer, awesome example of brown ale.

A subdued aroma of malt, pours a clear brown color, a dry feel with a taste of malt and a chalky malt finish.
