COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Subtlety. That's what makes our Avalanche amber ale such a treat. We blend pale and caramel malts -- and just a kiss of bittering hops -- to create a refreshing-but-flavorful, any-time beer. Aromas of pale grains, a semi-sweet middle and a clean-as-Colorado-snow finish make this our best-selling beer.

bottle. amber with small head. caramel malt with some nuttiness. no discernable hops. a bit underwhelming. when you describe your amber ale as subtle, that’s a clue you’re doing it wrong.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed June 13, 2014. The appearance is a light amber color that leaves the same color body with a two finger white foamy head that dies at a moderate pace leaving some light clingy foamy lacing. The smell has some biscuity malt, super muted barley, and light caramel. The taste is bland through previously mentioned flavors with a muted sweet aftertaste and dry slightly sweet finish. The palate is light, sessionable, and the carbonation seems to be spot on for the style and for me. Overall, uh... just not a very good taste, I was pretty disappointed with this one for me, though I would say only decent for the style.

Bottle to pint glass. Pours a nice amber with a thin head. Very weak hops aroma. Taste has a touch of malt but nothing really jumps out. Not bad at all

airrick2003 (443) - Louisiana, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Appearance: very clear light amber color, pours with a small beige head that dissipates quickly Aroma: creamy, very faint grain, very faint aroma Taste: some grainy smokiness, has a slight smoke finish, reminded me of dr pepper for a second Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, has minimal aftertaste Overall: this is very bland and watered down, this is my third beer from this brewery and I’m not very impressed, it is highly drinkable

Watery but cloudy, light with no carbonation. Easy to drink, malt and nut. Almost flat

Draft at the Breckenridge brew pub. Pours very clear brown with a thin, fizzy white head. Tastes sweet, malty, buttery, nutty. Light body and low carbonation. Smells nutty, buttery, and a little funky.

JustPlainLogan (51) - Galveston, Texas, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Pours a slightly dark amber color with a small white head. The nose is yeasty, grassy, a little bit of hops. Flavor is slightly bitter with a nice, bready aftertaste. Palate is average for the type of beer. Overall, not bad.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear amber pour with a fizzy white head. Light hop aroma with some dry grass notes. Flavor is mild and kind of plain. Grassy notes and then an oddly sweet finish before it abruptly ends.

HIGHB4LL (421) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Appearance: amber-red color, white and average sized head, poor lacing, clear. Aroma: citrus, caramel, hay, floral, leather. Palate: light body, abrupt ending, average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet and wheat tasting throughout the taste. Overall, nothing too special in my opinion, but very very drinkable.
