BEER INFO

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

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: It pours brown with a full tan head that does produce some lacing.

Smell: There are aromas of nuts, roast, a slight bit of smoke, and slight fruit.

Taste: It has flavors that feature a bit of smoke, nuts, roast, and a bit of plum.

Feel: It has a fairly light body with a somewhat smooth finish.

Overall, a nutty, smoky brew that is complimented by the roast and plums.

Pours a beautiful deep tawny brown with a quickly dissipating frothy head. Aroma is somewhat muted but slightly chocolatey. Has a slightly burnt nutty maltiness on your lounge, a little bit on the thin side. Yet another fine brew from SN. CHEERS!

Pours a perfect look; deep khaki head leaving lots of lacing. Colour is a deep brown with amber around the edges when held to the light.

Body is... malty but given a definite burnt flavor, with weird pine overtones. Not terrible but certainly leaving room for improvement.

Mouthfeel is more or less spot on. Slightly too carbonated but not by much.
