Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
Tumbler is our take on the classic brown ale – full of roasted malt flavor but delicate on the palate and perfect for crisp fall days. Layered with notes of chocolate and toasted bread and a hint of smoke, Tumbler is the ultimate autumn beer, so grab a seat and watch as the leaves come tumbling down.

2014 - Available in Fall Variety Pack (no longer available standalone)

Beautiful, huge beige head, with fantastic retention and lacing. Brew is a dark, nut brown, with purplish-red highlights, and very, very clear.

Toasty caramel greets the nose, with bright, tart fruit (grapes), brown sugar, and grains. Balanced aroma with earthy, slight pine-and-citrus hops. Great aroma.

Surprisingly sweet and fruity, with a nicely bitter roasty background. Caramel and toffee; grapes and raisins; thick, dark bread; roasty coffee and cacao in the background (very light); and balanced with pine and citrus hops and bitterness.

Slightly light mouthfeel, a little too syrupy and smooth, but easy drinking, fairly lively, with no sting. Again, if anything, it's a hair too smooth.

I realize brown ales aren't a favorite here, but this is a superbly balanced, extremely drinkable low ABV beer. I think it's straight up outstanding; an excellent example of the style, and a great accompaniment with food.
