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: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.

A very nice, very well balanced, easy drinking brown beer, the way such mellow styles of beer should be.

It really is terrific that we East-coasters are experiencing excellent Sierra Nevada variatal beers now. 5+ years ago, only Sierra Nev. pale was available--and for those of us not real hop-heads, it gets boring after a while. Now we can experience serious classic European style session beers--with all the expertise of one of America's venerated craft-brewers.

I highly recommend this beer, esp. for those who like malty beers, and to introduce to your big-beer-co. friends, as this one is easy to take, and really delicious.
