Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
California, United States

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.

Pous a dark brown mahogany clear body - one finger off-white head. Lacing is clumpy but good.

Not much on nose... save malts.

Taste is mild but good. Malts dominate the early palate and restrained hop bitterness kicks in later. Hints of caramel and even less of a hint of chocolate.

Mouthfeel is spot on for the carbonation (moderate) but slightly watery.

Overall, well made beer. Not a massive flavour - not too sweet, not too bitter, could go a few, and I don't normally say that for SN.

Pours a grocery bag brown with a small khaki head. Fresh grainy aroma, like walking into a brewhouse. Some milk chocolate and caramel in there too. Flavor is a bit of a letdown. Thin body and not enough robustness to interest me. A meek sweetish bready beer with a breath of smoke and a vanishing astringent finish.
