Sierra Nevada Tumbler

While at Al’s of Hampden, I ordered a glass of Sierra Nevada Tumbler. The beer pours a dark brown color with a thin filmy off-white colored head. The aroma consists of caramel, toasted malts, and coffee grinds. The taste is dry with toasted malts and a bit of coffee lurking in the background. There is a caramel backbone and the after taste has some grassy hops. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. The Tumbler is a different brown ale, as it isn't as malty as most. Overall, it is more dry and roasty, but still quite delicious.
