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 35 cl. Poured red brown in colour with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma mostly. Slightly burnt taste with some hints of coffee. A bit sweet as well. Felt a bit thin, not so nice.

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.

mensch (246) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2012
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.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2013 A little disappointing. I expect more flavor from a beer brewed by Sierra Nevada. Overall good but not great.

Pours a nice dark amber body with a medium head. Flavours full of jam and marmelade. A somewhat strange taste...

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a dark brown, almost black with half a finger of light beige head that dissipates quickly. Fresh and toffee-like aroma with some chocolate, roasted malts, hay, crisp bread and some flowers in the background. Rather light on the palate with butterscotchy and lightly roasted notes. A pretty classical, decent and easy drinking brown ale without much bitterness but a decent length.
