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.

Nickls (2336) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2011
Tap. Really dark brown-copper; with no head to speak of. Leafy, earthy, and some light sweetness and toffee in the aroma. Touch of bitter malt in the flavor, toffee again, leafy, and fall detritus ending with caramel. Thinner and slightly flat carbonation. Not digging on this, and pretty boring.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle @ home. Transparent, orange-brown appearance with a tan head. Roasty, a touch smoky, dark caramel malty, toasty nose. A little smoky, lightly nutty, toasty, dark caramel malty flavor. Not bad but not all that exciting either.

hawthorne00 (3420) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2011
Bottle. Clear brown with a pale beige head. Caramel aroma with some nuts. Sweet with nuts, chocolate, clean toffee. Dries out at the end and bitterness emerges after a while. Lacks personality.

cleverlobo (319) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2011
bottle; hazy brown with small beige head; aroma-roasty, molasses, spruce; taste-no real sweetness, moderate bitterness but lasting, moderate carbonation. Interesting aroma, little watered-down

Oscbert (1231) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 1, 2012
~Musty, earthy scent, mild sweet biscuity malt. ~Pours light clear brown with red tints and thick creamy off white lasting head. ~Light woody, bready flavor with earthy hop tones. ~Med body, med CO2, malty hoppy finish. ~Brinkablke, but eh, a little lackluster. Too hoppy, I prefer a bit maltier for a brown.

Malty_MacHops (688) - Eastanollee, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Decent not great. Maltly toast in the aroma. Deep brown with a tan head. The taste is undistinguished, but a slight caramel toast is present. Clean medium body.
