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)

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

A - Pours a deep brown with a big foamy mocha head. Tight bubbles. Lacing sticks.

S - Some lightly roasted malt. Hints at spices and some caramel as well.

T - A nice roasty character with some caramel hints. The malt gives way to some earthy hoppiness and a clean, semi-bitter finish. It was a fair balance. At first, a bit more hopped than I'd like, but it grew on me throughout the brew.

MF - A medium feel, good carbonation. I did not find this to be overcarbonated.

O - A solid choice. A good malt profile. Would recommend to those who like a moderate hoppy presence in a brown.
