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.

Bottled, 350ml from Favourite Beers, Cheltenham. Brown to ruby with very short lived head. Smooth malty and quite sweet beer, some fruitiness, berries, plummy with a hint of red wine, grapes, but mostly just sweetly smooth. Hints of hop in the close. Average beer.

yngwie (16711) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle, at lbaren. A dark golden to amber beer, topped by a dense, off-white head leaving lacings. Slightly vegetal on the nose, with roasted malts and caramel dominating. Roasted, caramel flavor with some dried fruits. Medium to full body, quite dry. Nutty, caramel finish. Not much bad going on here, but as so many brown ales, its rather boring, lacking depth and failing to raise interest with me. 110527

Draught, Port Street Beer House, Manchester. Dark amber looks with a small lingering tan head. Caramel malts, earth, nuts and vague hop featured in the nose. Flavour had some restrained hoppage and was largely malt driven .Ok but not my favourite offering from SN.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle. Old rating. Color is ruby borwon with good sized off white head. and some lacing. Malt forward nose with some earthiness and coffee. Taste is same earthy malts with some nutiness and touches of coffee and cocoa. Low bitterness. Not bad for a style that I typically bypass. However, enjoyable for a fall late afternoon.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
12 oz. Draft before MMJ concert. Slight molasses scent, kind of one dimensional. Dark brown pour, small head, pretty beer. Light body, crisp finishing. Dark bread crust, citrus touch on finish.

Ericular (971) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Dark, roasty malts with a little chocolate and some coffee. I dont like coffee flavor in a beer, so for this to be rated so well shows it was balanced or subtle enough to be enjoyable. The right amount of flavor and carbonation seem fitting for a cool fall day. Very good aftertaste for a roasty beer, in that its not too bitter or long-lived.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with mahogany edges and a two finger, pillowy light beige head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. The glass is left coated with chunks of soapy lacing. Earthy, slightly smokey aroma with a decent balance of floral hops and roasted malt notes. Hop presence is stronger than expected with a grassy, floral character that slightly overpowers the bother notes. The malt bill gives off sweet and roasted notes with hints of caramel, toffee and smoke but again, its earthier than I anticipated. On the lighter end of medium bodied with decent mix of bitter, sweet and roasted flavors. Surprisingly hop forward with some dry bitterness that lingers throughout, slightly overpowering the malt notes. Grassy and resinous with a floral pine presence thats countered by lightly smoked malt, toffee, caramel and hazelnut. Theres a decent amount of sweetness and interesting malt flavors but the hop presence is too aggressive for the style. Still, its an enjoyable beer thats easy to drink.

Not too bad. Fairly medium bodied. Toasty, roasty, and nutty. A pretty well crafted brown ale

12 ounce bottle pours a brown amber color, aromas of light chocolate, fall spices and some nuts. Flavor is the same, mostly nuts. Decent beer overall.
