Sierra Nevada Tumbler (5.5%)

My local vintner, Duncan Murray, stocks a small but select range of bottled beers.
For a town as small as Market Harborough, it’s pretty good.
He’s also a member of our worthy cause.
A week or so ago he told me he had a new range of beers coming in and I got pretty excited.
Yesterday they arrived and I duly picked up a bottle of each.
I thought I’d start last night with Sierra Nevada’s Tumbler as it seemed fitting with the autumnal day we’d had.
Tumbler is one of the brewery’s seasonal beers, their Autumn Brown Ale.
Pouring a deep brown which shines ruby red in the light, this is a good beer.
There are delightful hints of smoke in the malt and a good roast hazelnut tang.
Red woods & light pine resin notes tingle.
Forming the main body is a hit of rum warmth and a deliciously thick toffee before the sting of crisp, dry, bitter hops.
Another winner from Sierra Nevada.
