Day #257 – Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale

September 15, 2011

It’s 73 degrees in Texas!!! Holy crap!!! I spent the evening actually WATCHING a Rangers game and they completed the sweep of Cleveland. Shooting for the playoffs now.

Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale


This is Sierra Nevada’s Autumn seasonal. It is a brown ale at 5.5%. Easy enough right?

This beer pours a clear dark brownish color that turns a lovely shade of red in the light. I love the look of these brown ales. Nice tan type head.

Aroma is roasted notes, dark chocolate, malts and grains with a bready quality to it as well. Definitely reminds me of a brisk Autumn night.

Flavor is roasted bitter, dark malts and almost coffee but not quite. Bitter chocolate with a very bready finish. Robust I would say.
