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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Experienced from a 12oz bottle in an English pint glass. The beer pours a fairly translucent light to medium brown, with a very faint white head. The nose is initially somewhat unappetizing, giving notes more akin to Bud Light than a malty brown ale. Slight alcohol and unpleasant grainy notes, along with a subtle roasted malt note that comes through as the sample warms. The palate is also something of a disappointment. Carbonation is too high, muting the malts advertised on the beers label, and leaving a somewhat insipid mouthfeel. Again, a slight roasted note, but little else. A somewhat harsh bitterness comes through, near the end of the palate. The finish is crisp, bolstered by the aforesaid high level of carbonation. Overall, a rare miss from an otherwise excellent brewery.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Dark brown, great head. Green, vegetal aroma. Taste of roasted malt, reminds me of a nut brown ale. The hops are tasty and make the beer decent, almost overcoming the aroma which I dont care for.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2010 Cola brown in color. Nicely malt forward without being too sweet. A little too bold style wise in my opinion. Could use some spice to add a kick.

BREWMUSKCLES (2621) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 24, 2010
aroma of a bar, and thats not bad! coating of wood and spice like cinnamon but without the cinnamon flavor. malt, a bit sweet and a light dishwater with lemon soda wafting in and out. tastes brown and that aint bad either. a hard catagory for me to enjoy.

jstraw (1966) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2010 Dark, clear, red-amber with good, foamy, tan head / Light nose of caramel and dry hops / Light to medium body, weak malts, with fair finish / Weak flavors of coca cola, nuts, toast, and dry hops / A surprisingly mediocre effort from SN.

bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with beige head. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, spice, grass, maple and brown sugar. Flavors of toffee, toast, pine, peat and herbs. Finish is wet yet chalky. Medium-thin body with chalky mouthfeel and lively, soft carbonation. Smells wonderful but flavor is not. Not a good drinker nor a good sipper.

Bottle. Poured a clear brownish color, medium white head. Aroma was malty, touch of nut, chocolate. Flavor was nutty, malty. Palate was smooth, a bit thin. A decent beer for the weather it was consumed in.

Nejhleader (1511) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
some roasted malts in the taste, some caramel. Body is okay, with a decent carbonation blend. Carries a slightly roast aftertaste.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2010
A reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. A light fruity malt aroma with light herbal notes. In mouth, nutty malt with light roasted notes, like a vienna, rather mundane. Bottle at Great North Carolina Brewers Fest., August 28 2010.
