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)

Nutty, bready, toasted, chocolate, and caramel. Lots of lace rings. Easy drinking. Good value.

A: Pours a clear copperbrown with two fingers of off-white head that fades into a frothy ring with decent lacing.

S: Caramel and chocolate malt aromas with a lot of nutty aromas and a bit of vanilla.

T: Caramel and chocolate malt flavors here as well with lots of nutty flavors, some hearty bread, and a little hop bitterness.

M: Medium body and carbonation, this beer is nicely carbonated and drinkable.

O: A good brown ale, overall. Not terribly complex, but quite enjoyable.

Pours a lovely deep, dark ruby brown with a tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves substantial lacing down the glass.
The aroma is dark and sweet: caramel, brown sugar and a hint of sweet chocolate.
What a great taste: toffee and caramel and dark fruit with a pleasant, lingering bitter.
The moutfeel is maybe the best part of this beer; creamy and luscious.
Overall just soooo good. Wish it were around all the time!
