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.

Draft pour at the field location. Rating from notes. Pours a clear copper color with a foam head. Spice, malty aroma. Sweet caramel, and a light bready feature. Maybe a little nutty. Smooth and rich. Decent amber.

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2015
No real aroma. Average amber color. Palate was too light and watery. Carbonation was fine. Flavors were muted with a mild malt tartness and hop bitterness. At one time this might have been something but has since been passed up.

tricyclist (1124) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Pint-size poor, medium amber with an off-white head. Nose is predominantly malt forward, caramel notes, With dry biscuit qualities, and some Citrus notes. Also a little peppery on the nose with a little bit of zest. Flavor follows fairly smoothly with mild spice notes of hops and pepper. and a somewhat clean caramel malt quality. While it is fairly drinkable and it is seemingly proper to style it is not that interesting. I don’t love it but it is a moderately enjoyable amber ale. 16052015
