Brewed by:
Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Style: American Brown Ale

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.

A: dark brown almost redish in color. thin head that stays till its in your tummy
S: not a strong smell mostly just malts and some sour yeast smell
T: the best part!!! a hint of almonds combined with a malty sweetness. hops come through near the end but only for asecond
M: decent carbonation, clean and crisp almost like a lager

O: one of my favorites such a refreshing beer perfect for those fall leaf pickup days

Tasted almost a year and a half ago - reviewed from notes that were lost and recently found.

Pours medium brown with a dense light tan head that thins and lasts.

The smell is of roasted nuts, caramel and a slight touch of smoke.

The taste is of sweet caramel/toffee with roasted nuts. There is a light smoked character and a mild earthiness that balance the sweet malts.

It is medium-to-full bodied and pretty smooth.

This is an enjoyable, pretty standard, American brown ale. Another good brew from Sierra Nevada!
