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.

Capa (2950) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2010
A nice reddish brown with a tan head. Toasted malts, caramel, light chocolate, some toffee, too. A little bit of hops on the finish. Smooth but with a little bit of carbonation on the tongue as it goes down. Real nice brown.

hershiser2 (2516) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours a lovely brown with a small light tan head that lingers and laces. Smells of malts and autumn leaves. Flavor is a bitter nuttiness, some roasted leafy notes, and finishes with a bitter bite.

puboflyons (3231) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 26, 2010
2010 series marked 021111813. The pour is a rich mahogany brown with a full head about two inches thick and generous lacing. Robust malts, a weak toffee-like scent, and a slight fruitiness greet the nose. The taste has a sharp bitterness mixed in with the upfront roasted malts. But the bitterness is offset with a smooth creamy texture on the tongue. Nicely done.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
12 bottle - courtesy of OfficerCockKnuckles (heh heh). Deep clear refractive chestnut, nice and bubbly with a solid creamy-fizzy tan head. Smells quite grassy, with background cocoa and further herbal and crushed nutshell bittering elements. Good taste - not very sweet at all (yay! better than most US browns then) - same elements as the aroma, plus plenty of grain. Rock-solid body, quite lively, and a surprisingly long bitter finish, with a hint of dry acidity; very good, but possibly hoppier than many would like.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
On tap at Coles. Lighter than some browns, with lotsa bubbles and a lingering head. All malt in the aroma. The flavour reveals that there is some complexity to the malt. There is nuttiness and toast, as there should be, but also some porter/stout qualities, such as milk chocolate, roast and smoke. A slight hioppy bitterness arrives in the finish. Very well done.

deyholla (10686) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a mahogany brown with a lasting gray head. Aroma has notes of dark grains and bread with a hint of smokiness and molasses. Flavor is similar with a dark bread note that is complimented by a slight molasses note and a bit of smokiness in the finish.

mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Nice flavorful brown. On he light side. Very solid. You can really taste the pale recipe in this. Bitter kick in the end. A bit more sweetness would be nice.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2010
bottle. pours a deep brown with a small off white head. lots of malt in the nose... some chocolate, sweet dark fruits and roasted malts. this is such a wonderfully balanced brown ale - tons of malts and just the right amount of hops to round things out. medium body with a creamy top layer... robust malts linger and flow through the lower portion of the mouth. more chocolate notes are prevalent followed by some caramel and light coffee. a light citrus bitterness balances the malts out on the finish. great new beer from Sierra Nevada.

halfonit (1337) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Pours a deep brown/amber color. Aroma is of malts, roastiness, nuts, and some sweetness. Flavor is of malts, some roastiness, molasses, and caramel. Leaves a sweeter malt finish.

nolankowal (938) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Ruddy orange/red pour with a light tan head. Aroma of light smoke, burnt sugar,chocolate, a tinge of must, and a earthy/vegetal hop aroma. Flavors are quite nice, dry bitter hops weave in and out through light sweetness/earthiness... malty throughout, light smokiness. Medium bodied, a great balancing act of dry/bitter/malty/sweet weaves throughout the palate until it reaches a dry and satisfyingly bitter finish. Cant wait to sip this through the fall, another recent brew Sierra Nevada has stepped up their game with, cant wait to see whats next.
