The seasons are changing, and so are the beer selections. It is easy to miss out on some of the seasonals to land on the shelves at this time of year, especially since this beer season seams to arrive so early. Oktoberfest in August, pumpkin beers at the peak of summer, and fall beers just a couple weeks after that. It is natural to want to hold onto summer and the great lemon, raspberry, and wheat beers that are so refreshing. Do Not Do This, and I'll tell you why. Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale, that is why.

There is just something awesome about a beer, when it is done just right, like Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale. There is also something that makes such a balanced classic brown ale very hard to describe. I know that when writing reviews I describe beers as balanced a lot, but that is because I pick beers to review that I like, and I like balanced beers. That is probably the most important thing for me. Other than being balanced, Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale is dark in color and musty in smell. This beer has a very nice feel in the mouth with a good hop to malt ratio. After having a couple and sharing them with a few friends the only real distinct description that we could come up with was nutty. I was told by my good friend, that Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale is "like god ground up autumn and put it in a bottle". And, he is correct. After drinking this beer you feel all warm inside and after seeing the leaves on the box and picture on the bottle, you just think ahhhh…. Autumn.

Final words: Drink Sierra Nevada Tumbler Autumn Brown Ale, or stick your finger in this! Your choice.
