Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale is attractive and bland.
It had the color and subtle flavor of root beer, pouring mahogany with burnt orange around the edges, and a tall thick tan head that left thick rings of lace. The smell was sweet, metallic, and acrid. It had very little flavor with just a hint of sweetness with a subtle reminder of root beer. There was no feel to speak of--it was as slick and fleeting as water. At 5.5 percent ABV, and a watery feel, it was refreshing enough and easy to drink; however, maybe that isn't a good thing from a Brown Ale.
Overall, Tumbler is...not bad. Unfortunately, there's nothing unique, or even memorable about it. It represents a swing-and-miss from a brewery with several home runs.

Sampled tonight on 6/26/14. Found this bottle in the back of the cooler so it is a good year old I am guess BUT there isn't a expiration date anyone on the bottle and this brew is now RETIRED and no longer brewed. But opened it and it was fine. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 14 ounce glass 'Texas style " boot.
Pours a clear dark brown in color with a good 3-finger off-white head! Good carbonation with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of roasted malts, hazel nut and brown sugar. Very nice! The taste is close to the aroma but not as strong BUT pretty good overall with all the flavors mentioned above coming through lots of the hazelnut 'nut' flavor in the mix. A slight dry smoke finish but still good.
