In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into the second beer from Sierra Nevada Brewery’s Fall Pack. It is former fall seasonal and 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 brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into this brown ale.
It has a clear dark brown color with a white constant head. The smell has a malty to nutty notes. The taste has a slight sweet malty to nutty notes with a peanut butter finish. It is pretty drinkable 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.

Closing, I love this beer and I wish I could get it in a 12pk again. I love Flipside but it is not like Tumbler Brown. It is a nice relaxing beer to have in a nice fall day. It is not overly dry malt to nutty notes. It has a nice balance that you can enjoy it during the Saturday or Sunday football games. This brown ale can fit perfectly with any tailgating food. They kept this true to the classic beer style. There is nothing more to say but it is a great beer. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
