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.

HAY GUYS IM BACK TO REVIEW MORE OF YOURE FAVORITE CRAFT BEERS (I WISH I COULD TALK ABOUT PLINY MORE ITS JUST WONE BEST NUMBER ONE BEER IN AGAIN!!! SEVEN YEARS IN A ROW) BUT SERRA NEVEDA MAKE A GOOD BROWN ALE. ITS A DIFFRENT STYLE BECAUSE OF THE SPESHIAL BROWN COLOR. TASTE LIKE FRUIT AND SPICE. VERY GOOD BEER AND NOT AS STRONG AS STOUTS BEERS. SO YOU CAN DRINK ONE OR TWO WITH OUT BECOMING HUNG OVER OR PUKING IN THE SHOWER AGAIN. I RECOMMEND TRYING THIS BEER.

Nose is sweet toasted malt, grassy aromas, toffee, and a touch of citrus hops. Pours medium dark brown, can barely still see through witha ful inch beige head which clings to the side of the glass. Smoth waves of creamy sweetness and malt are followed by a slight bittering balance with a long hoppt finish at the end. Slightly balanced towrds the favor of toasted malt, but the undertow of hops , particularly at the end go very well. Caramel, nutty, toffee, choclate flavors with some sea salt, grass, and clover. Very tasty. Medium carbonation, easy drink , rich and satisfying while not being too heavy.

BOTTLE from T.J.s Thin body, fizzy carbonation, malt sweetess with a somewhat ash-like taste in the roast. Minimal and slightly odd aftertaste. Drinkable, but surprisingly forgettable; esp. for a Sierra Nevada brew..BUY AGAIN? No

carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pours brilliantly clear with a 2-inch tan head which settles to 1/8 inch. The color is dark mahogany with a hint of red. The nose suggests coffee, wood, malt, and bread. The body is surprisingly light. Modest carbonation. The palate suggests toast, coffee, nuts, roasted malt, and earthiness. Decent lingering. Some Belgian lace does form. Thirst quenching, not moreish. The ABV is not noticeable. Very pleasant.

Pours a clear brown hue with a small fading head that laces the glass as it goes down. Metallic, malt, and roasted nuts aroma. Notes of light cocoa, chocolate, a touch of bittering hops, and roasted nuts.

Murrow (100) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Bottled. Pours an amber-brown, white-tan head. Noticeable hop aroma with strong smoky roasted malt character. Savory, slightly sweet caramel flavor up front with hint of hop bitterness, finishing with crisp balance of malt and hops. Hint of alcohol on the finish. Smooth mouthfeel, light to medium bodied. Rich, enticing beer that is very warming; a welcome experience as autumn approaches.

After a string of bad luck with different brown ales I decided to try this one. Got the big boy and was not disappointed. Sierra Nevada puts out some good stuff.

Appearance is a dark translucent brown. Head is off white, small. Good lacing. Smells of roasted coffee and malts. Tiny bit of brown sugar and earthiness. Taste is coffee, caramel, bread, malty and finishes with some crisp hops. Mouthfeel is smooth, yet gives some bite on the tongue. Overall this is one of my favorite autumn browns. It feels and looks like fall.
