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.

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.

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.

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.

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

rumproasts (3553) - 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.

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

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light amber with a thin ring do white head. Aroma of caramel and a little Roasty malt. Taste is similar. Very lightly bitter with some Roasty malt. Meh, good but not great.
