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.

Front is a dry barley taste. Middle is basically gone. Nothing there. Finish is slightly hoppy: think Kent Goldings type hoppy, though. That's right: more "mossy" flavor and not biting at all. Finish is more malt and barley. Dry throughout and would probably go well with food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RRRozie (22) - Cortland, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a medium golden-brown with a thin, fine head. Aroma has just a trace of maltiness. Taste is crisp and dry, more like a classic Nut Brown than an Amber Ale. Palette is long and dry, with a slowly-emerging bitterness. Not what I expected in an Amber, but very good for a Nut Brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrHangover (2147) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2013
Draft a the brewpub. Pours a clear amber beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is faint caramel, malty and not much more. Flavour is faint, lager-ish and has again that very watery, flat mouthfeel. Virtually no finish. Session ale, nothing more, nothing less.

brokensail (9959) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Breckenridge @ The Ballpark. Pours a clear amber pour with a white head. Nutty, toasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel, bread, and a nice floral hop note. Flavor is solid nutty malts and toast. Bread, toffee, and a bit of caramel. Mild hops. Slight grassiness on the finish. Nice sweetness, but not cloying.

Pours an amber hue with very little head. Aroma is light malt and no hop notes. Taste is watery with a light malt taste. Pretty terrible offering from breckenridge.

Pours clear amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma of malts, bready and caramel, flavors of pale malts, hay, caramel and some bitterness
A decent amber, well balanced and easy drinking.

Can from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. American pint glass. A nice amber with significant haze and medium white head. The aroma is heavy with caramel, toffee, and cereal. The taste was very pleasant with caramel, toffee, bread, and nuts. Almost creamy and medium bodied. I really liked it.
