Sierra Nevada Tumbler

sierra_nevada_tumbler

It’s getting late in the year now, and time to get wrap up the fall seasonals.   Today is Sierra Nevada’s Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale.   It’s a classic brown ale with a lot of caramel in the nose, and a medium body.  The middle is malty and sweet, but not overly so.  The sweetness trails off to a finish that’s nearly perfectly balanced with hops, with just a hint of bitterness.  It’s a shame this is only a seasonal, because this is hands down one of my favorite brown ales, period.

I give it a 4.4 out of 5.
