In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into a seasonal from past by Sierra Nevada Brewery. It is their Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this West Coast craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this California base craft brewery. Let us get into this brown ale.
It has a dark brown color with a white head. The aroma has a malty to sweet nutty notes. There is a hint of smoke and chocolate notes. The taste has a sweet nutty with hints of smoke notes. The aftertaste has a dry malty finish. It is a nice drinkable fall beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
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.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I miss this beer. This beer was the fall beer seasonal like two to three years ago. I give them credit for changing it up once in while. Everyone does an Oktoberfest and it does not make sense to check into something that the rest of the market. They did something different with their Oktoberfest. They are brewing with a German brewery. I have to say that it is really good. It became one of my favorite brews to drink this fall. I always love to revisit this beer. I love this beer. I just wish that it was still available in six-pack and twelve pack. I hate that it is in a sampler pack, however, I am happy they are still giving us this great brew. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
