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)

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Opened a 2011 12-oz bottle at home, poured into a standard pint glass, drank fridge-cold.

A - Nice deep dark pour, tiny bubbles producing thin small creamy head. When pint is held up to the light, you can see through the brown, but in darker environments it is almost black, which i like in a brown ale.

S - light roasted malt aroma, slightly floral

T - clean crisp and light. Initial strong roasted malted taste, that fades into hoppy bitter finish.

MF - smooth but a bit thin, prefer a little more body

O - For a brown ale, this makes a statement. More hops then most, and stronger then some, but easy drinking due to the crisp light feel that many brown ales impart.

Poured into a pint glass.

Appearance is a deep clear ruby with decent carbonation.

The smell is of caramel and roasted malt with maybe a small amount of smoke along with a slight hoppy smell.

The taste is very bready along with roasted malt and caramel/toffee. The smoke malt is evident but only slightly on the back end. There is a nice hop bitterness that leaves this beer finishing dry.

I really like this beer and wish I would have picked up more of it this fall. Very well-suited to the season.
