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 into an ale glass. Pour is a dark honey amber. Aroma is weak but malt. Taste is a wash and on the low side but clean. Finish is crisp.

ajnepple (2564) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - MAY 9, 2014
12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount, 4.4%. Amber and clear appearance with a nicely retained white head and thick lacing. Mild aroma of toasted grains, pale malts, caramel, toffee, light chocolate and light hops. Similar flavor, malty and smooth, mildly sweet and a touch of earthy bitterness. Light, soft body, pretty clean and easy to drink.

Hanuta06 (355) - Washington, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Serving: from tap at American Airlines Board Room. Aroma: light malt. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white initial head with good lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear dark-amber body. Taste: lightly acidic initial flavor and lightly acidic, lemon and cardboard finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: nothing exciting.

rumproasts (3232) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 22, 2014
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.

Bulk_Carrier (2277) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - FEB 18, 2014
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.

iceman15658 (131) - Acme, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
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 (540) - 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
