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)

Got this beer in a 6 at a local market.

This beer poured a clear very dark amber to ruby brown, with 2' of light tan head that settled down to less than an inch after about 10 minutes. Good lacing down the sides as I drank it. The aroma was a strong spicy smell with pine. There was some sweet caramel malt in the background. Upfront, there was a nice spicy and piney hop flavor balanced nicely by malt and light caramel sweetness. The bitterness was balanced and both the malt flavor and hop flavor lingered for a few minutes. The mouth feel was medium bodied with a nice pleasant carbonation.

Overall, I was impressed with this beer and liked it very much. I found it balanced, very easy to drink, and very tastie. I'm looking forward to my next one.
