Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown AleSierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale

Brewed by:
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

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)

A - Cherry Red - solid head retention, lacing, and active in the 13oz tulip. Solid, great looking beer.

S - Signature house SN profile nose with some toasted nuttiness but muted with hints of brown sugar.

T - Better than the nose, again...toasted nuttiness, signature SN house finish but hops not as pronounced as we come to expect from SN.

M - Light, crisp and dry. Easy drinker. Lighter on the malts than you'd expect for the style but appreciated. Needs a tad bit more body but still good.

O - I give this a 4.5 becuase it's one that you could easily kick back a sixer on a warm late summer's day that stays dry and sessionable even after more than a few.

The nose on this beer is so good that I just kept going back to it for a whiff. Inevitably, that leads to high expectations for all other aspects of the beer. It delivers. Nice smooth flavor profile with a rounded tone to it. A lot of brown ales I try tend to be too fruity and vibrant, but this is not one of them. It's even. I like this one. It's rare that this style does it for me, but this beer delivers. A pleasure to drink.

A:acorn brown that lets some light through. It has a little off white that is appealing.-thought it would be darker.

S:Not much going on here. A little smoke and malt with a toffee edge to it. Does not smell inviting.

T:Toffee, caramel, hint of smoke, and roasted malt. Pretty one dimensional here.

M:medium to thin.

Least favorite beer from SN.
