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.

In bottiglia al 28 erbe, una discreta brown ale anche se era scaduta da qualche mese

hawthorne00 (3163) - 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.

Oscbert (1193) - 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 (640) - 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.

maxwelldeux (4265) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a moderate head. I donít mind the taste of this, but I find it to be a bit lacking in flavor and substance. Relatively little smell or taste to it.

ThisWangsChung (826) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - AUG 25, 2012
12 oz bottle poured into a regular glass. Woo, 2012 vintage! A: Pours a dark reddish copper color with low vibrance. The head is a three finger cream color with decent retention and texture. A small amount of lacing is left on the glass. S: Light hazelnut, some chocolate, grains, and a hint of hops. Nothing that pops out by any means, but itía pleasant enough. T: Aside from some initial hazelnut coffee notes and a finishing kick of earthy hops, this doesnít have a lot of flavor. Itís not even particularly balanced, as there are too much in the way of alpha acids on the finish. Despite that, itís pretty pleasant, if rather simple. M: A bit too chalky on the tongue for my tastes. The hops provide a slight kick of bitterness, but otherwise, it has a neutral finish. Well carbonated and easy to drink in spite of its niggles. O: Not one of SNís better offerings. Having said that, itís an immensely drinkable brown ale that one could find themselves drinking 3-4 of in a sitting. At least itís well priced in typical SN fashion. Average, but worth a try once.
