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)

Appearance- (4.25) Dark brown, mahogany, and a red amber hue. Pours a one finger white colored head.

Aroma- (4.25) Sweet caramel malts, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Taste- (4.5) For the most part this follows the nose closely. Sweet malts dominate this beer, but the hops provide enough of a presence to make this perfectly balanced. On the front end big caramel malts flavors burst on the tongue followed by a slight citrus hop presence. At the end the caramel malt is accompanied by cinnamon and spice that glaze the tongue. Slight roasted nut flavors give balance to the sweetness as well.

Feel- (4.25) Crisp snap of carbonation on the front end, and creamy smoothness throughout.

Overall- (4.5) I can see why people miss this beer, but I wasn't expecting to love this one. Easily the best brown ale I've had with amazing balance and flavor. Literally the perfect amount of sweetness I'd like in a beer. Definitely a must try for the Fall beer list, and one I will seeking out alot.

I go to Sierra Nevada when I want a beer done right. SN brews staples. This is a staple Brown Ale. Smooth, sweet, smokey, and nutty. With hints of vanilla and toffee. Great brown ale, great beer altogether.
