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.

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.

zach8270 (3583) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2014
(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 (656) - 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.

Pours a amber color with a thin white head. Aromas are malts and caramel, with a hint of nuts. Soft carbonation and abrupt finish. Quite disappointing.

Normally don’t drink ambers but it was in the sampler pack. Very slight bready/caramel aroma. Standard golden amber color with a thin head. Light in flavor but get some light caramel, some biscuit and some light hop on the finish. Was a little thin but not bad. Good beer to use to move someone off of macros.

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle poured a nice amber with a thin cream head. The aroma is of caramel malts. The taste is pretty mild, watery mouthfeel. The finish is malty with a little hop. Overall not a bad amber ale.

roxtersoxter (346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours amber with quickly devolving tan head out of bottle. Caramel aroma with watered down flavor. Not much going on with this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A Saranac in disguise. This must be the mildest beer in Colorado. Light amber color, light amber flavor.
