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.

Pours very dark brown with a medium tan head. Tons of lacing. Smell of roasted malts, caramel, spices, and hops. Flavor is of the roasted mals, caramel, chocolate and coffee. Not too bad.

I’ve had better Brown Ales...and better Sierra Nevada brews. I saw an earlier post saying something about being the 6th largest brewery in the US and that possibly their commitment isn’t quite there. There may be some truth to this or maybe this one is just a blip on the radar...

Brownish red opaque. Smell is all malts and fairly roasty. Flavor is much like a porter, yet fairly uninteresting. Decent.

SimonRoller (390) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle, pours brown with thin tan head. Aroma is some caramel. Got some chocolate, coffee and caramel in the taste, got some hints of smoke also, Lightly bitter and sweet. Nothing disturbing in the taste but nothing mind blowing either. Kind of lame brown ale, it works but I problably wont buy again.

Onionkid (390) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - SEP 1, 2011
Bottle. Aroma of hops. Has a malty, sweet flavor with caramel and hops. A very solid beer, would definitely drink more! 5.5% alcohol.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 12, 2010
12 oz bottle - Hints of roasted chocolate and caramel. Cloudy brown with an off-white head. Creamy flavor with some nice chocolate aftertaste. Overally, browns don’t excite me, but this one is very nice. I’d have a few of them.

Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2010
A tasty brew, not strong, but not weak, pretty much as expected for a brown ale. Enjoyable bitterness and dark brown color, this is a good brew. Went great with spicy cheese. Sierra Nevada is a great brewery.

NJJereme (387) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle. Pours an amber-brown color with an off-white head. A surprising citrusy, hoppy smell on pour mixed w/ malts. Has a nice balance b/w the malts and hops. Light to medium bodied. A little more subtle in bitterness that a standard pale ale. Refreshing. Nice for a change.
