3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml bottle, in Nevada City. Reddish brown colour, off-white head. Malty and nutty aroma and flavour, with notes of burnt caramel. Moderate hops in the finish. Iím sorry, but brown ales like this one rarely make me ecstatic. This one is no exception, even though it is made by the capable brewers of Sierra Nevada. Nothing wrong with it, just not my favourite style.

Poured from a bottle. Delicious choice! Small head and little lacing, but creamy texture nonetheless. Terrific clear amber color. Nutty and sweet, interesting.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
After a string of downright boring Brown Ales, Tumbler gave me just the kind of upper I needed to keeping seeking out the style. And this truly is a beautiful representation of the Brown Aleís potential. With elements of chocolate, smoke, nuts, toasted barley, subtle coffee, and some citrusy, mildly bitter hops, Tumbler is far from the watered-down levels that Brown Ales sometimes succumb to. This is a fall classic thatíll stick around for years to come.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours hazy dark chestnut brown with a fat and foamy tan head. Aroma is bready malt with a touch of toast and yeast. Taste is roasted malts, a bit of cocoa and some mild backing bitterness that lasts into the aftertaste. A bit smoky. A nice brown ale with a touch of sourness.
