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.

Appearance - Translucent golden brown, two finger creamy off white head. Moderate lacing.

Smell - Sweet, slightly smokey malts. Hints of caramel, toffee. Some woody characteristic as well, maybe pine? Faint citrusy hops.

Taste - Definitely sweet malts up front, but a surprisingly high hop presence to balance. Toffee, pine, maybe a bit of sweet potato in there as well. Dry bitter hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body, moderate carbonation. Very drinkable.

Overall - A pretty solid brown ale. The hoppiest of any of the few browns I've had.

A-Poured into a pint glass. Pours a brown color with a finger width head. The head is staying around for a little bit and is leaving a nice lacing on the glass as is disappears. Lots of carbonation.

S-Very toasty and bready. Roasted malt and nuts. Very mild coffee and chocolate notes.

T-Malt sweetness and caramel and toffee notes come out first. Mild soapiness and roasted nuts are there on the back end.

M-Soapy, sweet, and roasty.

O-Overall this is a good fall seasonal. Smooth drinking and comforting on those cold fall nights.
