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.

The Sierra Nevada Tumbler was a pretty standard brown ale overall. Its appearance was darkish brown with a slight tan head. Its mouthfeel was medium-bodied and its smell was overall a solid maltiness but nothing super strong. The taste was much like the nose-- just pretty average. I was hoping for something with a little spice, but maybe that’ll have to wait for he winter warmer.

Real nice brass-brown color, lasting tan head. Very light toasty aroma. Some sweet malts, but the hops are barely discernable in flavor or finish. A top of the mouth coating astringentcy quickly overtakes any pleasant maltiness and lasts for the finish. I’d drink it again, but not if I’m paying.

Bottle. Brown colour with beige head. Aroma and taste of sweet roasted malts, caramel and a tiny note of apples. Sweet mouthfeel. Allmost czech dark style.

Trocken röstmalziger Beginn, etwas süß. Ab dem Mittelteil grasig, was aber nur kurz im Vordergrund steht. Mild röstig, angenehme Bitterkeit. Wässrig nach Kaffee. 8/8/9/8/10/9

A pretty non-offensive brown ale, nothing spectacular, but relatively tasty none-the-less.

So glad I can get this as a single... Slightly foul, smoky odor. Bitter, nutty flavor. Not necessarily bad taste but can’t get past that smell. Maybe a bad bottle, or maybe Sierra Nevada should stick to the pales.

Not a very interesting taste, was expecting to have a little more meat to it.

Out of 12 oz bottle. Poured clean with very little head. Smell was smokey with a little hint of caramel. Good roasted malt flavor. All in all, not bad for a quick drinking beer

Fairly bright brown. Not a ton of nose. Sharp initial bite, not particularly balanced but okay. Wish it had more flavor. Decent smooth mouthfeel, not enough malts for my taste buds. Very dry. This one is fine, but definitely not an all-time favorite from Sierra Nevada. Cool label, great Autumn vibe.

Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival. Clear brown, rich head. Roasty and mid sweet, mediu bodied. Salty with some winegum and light roastines. Salty finish. Rather sterile.
