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)

This is a bit of an older bottle that I had in the fridge for a while. I'm not sure what the bottle date is, but it's labeled as a 2011 Tumbler. I wasn't a fan of the Brown Ale style before, but a few beers have changed my mind recently and this is one of them.
This poured a nice, dark brown color with about a 1 finger head.
Not much bitterness to speak of, but a nice flavor none the less.
A Brown Ale is nothing I really like to search out, but this was is enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone that is a fan of the Brown Ale style.
