Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Mebuzzard on 07-25-2010

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)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Dark amber brown. (Drank this right out of the bottle)

S: Roasted malts, and some toffee sweetness.

T: Smooth, very malty (almost coffee-like), with a slightly hoppy aftertaste.

M: Medium body with medium carbonation.

O: I like some of Sierra Nevada's other offerrings better, but this isn't bad by any means. It's a nice fall beer, and I will drink it again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Tapped into a pint glass.

Appearance - Tight creamy white head. Good retention and extreme stick. Clear dark brown body. Blankets side of glass.

Smell - Musky. Nutty. Faint caramel.

Taste - Nutty brown body. Light hop. Moderate malt. Unchallenging.

Mouthfeel - Kinda water. Smooth. Mild astringency. Slight creaminess.

Overall Drinkability - Sessionable. Not much of a tasting beer. Near boring, but not quite.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark red, almost brown. Finger-width head. There's a little bit of lacing left behind.

S: I can smell some brown sugar and nut, with alcohol lingering in the background.

T: Malt and nut are the name of the game. It's not quite a rich as I'd expected from the smell.

M: Medium-bodied, though a lot cleaner than I expected. Not bad at all.

D: A little blander than I had expected, especially after that first whiff, but a solid brown ale. The kinds of beer I look forward to when the leaves begin to fall.
