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)

12 oz.

Pours a mostly clear maple brown with an eggshell film for a head, retains well.

Smells of brown sugar and buttered biscuit malts.

Flavor of brown sugar, toasted biscuit, hazelnut, and a light woodiness.

Medium body with a tingling carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Nice brown ale with good flavor and aroma, worth a try and easy to enjoy. Beyond that, nothing exceptional.

This was the first brown ale I fell in love with. I've had better brown ales since, but this is still a good, very drinkable beer. Safety drink when in a NYC bar during the fall.

A: Fairly clear, light caramel-brown color. Soft, fluffy bloom that lingers. Definite lacing.

S: Nutty (malts), floral (hops) aromas develop into an almost flowery bouquet.

T: Fairly complex flavor profile with very good malt to hop balance. Nutty but not overly so. Good, toasted bread-like flavors.

M: More carbonated than many brown ales, although not to the point of disrupting what this style is known for. Fairly smooth.

O: A solid interpretation of a classic (and often ignored) style.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Nut brown with a one-finger head
S: Lots of toasted malt along with nutty and caramel notes
T: Matches the nose adding just a touch of bitterness from the hops
M: Medium-bodied
O: Enjoyable with the cooler fall weather that just moved in
