SIERRA NEVADA TUMBLER AUTUMN BROWN ALE

Blunt medium-bodied amber-grained autumnal brings fresh-roasted kiln malting and wet-leafed hop bittering to dreary brown-sugared chocolate-smoked coffee nuttiness. Diminished peanut-shelled hazelnut-pecan-walnut simmer drops off to earthen peat herbage. On tap, dry Brazil nut bittering counters distant maple-sapped hazelnut chocolate sweetness as interceptive dirty-grained hop-roasted astringency beckons.

CLIMAX NUT BROWN ALE

Swampy tan-headed, brown-bodied dark ale invites roasted nuttiness to sharp hop char and creamy mocha malting for up-front maltose penetration. Walnut-skinned peanut shelling lightly embitters maple-sugared hazelnut, butternut and cola illusions. Perhaps less assertive and gentler than richer nut browns, but mild silken nature perfect as crossover fare for pilsner-lager fans.
