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.

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.

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.

Pours average amber with minimal notes of flavor. Weak body with minimal sweet flavor. Light carbonation easy finish

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.

Bottle. This was a a real disappointment. At the price point there are much better brews out there.

Bouteille de 12 oz achetée chez Beverage Warehouse (Winooski, VT). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréale avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est dorée-orangée légèrement voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréale avec une pointe de caramel et de noix. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #5210)

Joakgust (894) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2013
Can, 355ml - Clear amber beer with a large head. Aroma is malty with notes of spices, nuts, caramel and dried fruit. Flavor is malty with notes of roasted barley, nuts and caramel. Nothing special.

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

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
