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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
22 oz bomber. Pours amber with a small head that settled quickly. The aroma is caramel, grain and faint hops. Taste is more grains with some corn and dishrag hops. Totally sucked.

szkot (100) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Pours light amber with a small head. Aroma is slightly malty, as is the taste, but little complexity. A thin beer.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Pours copper and clear with a decent off white head. Toasted malt and caramel aroma. Straight ahead caramel and bread flavor with a slightly rough bitter finish. Light in body.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 27, 2005
Floral, toasty, and peaty aromas. Fairly light red. Weak on the front flavors, with just a hint of hops. Very small head with almost no lacing. Not much complexity to this one.

Aurelius (4917) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
I really enjoyed the buttery grain-malt aroma. Fairly sweet, lots of caramel, a little astringent. Somehow vacant. Finish a little tinny.

Gachupines (1205) - USA - APR 12, 2005
Not too impressed with this one. Not too much flavor, fairly clean tasting except for a sweet aftertaste which was somewhat unpleasant. Something about this beer simply did not work for me.

3.9
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Macanudo (14) - USA - APR 4, 2005
A quality amber. Nice reddish color and smooth head on the pour. Malty without being overpowering.

kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2005
had this at my parents house. drank straight from the bottle so this isn’t the most accurate rating. anyway tasted slightly malty and slightly hoppy not much of any thing a bit bitter and rather blah.

2.4
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
jgentgesdo (687) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 30, 2005
Pours a nice red color with a limited head. Nose is coppery and acrid. The flavor is sour, metallic, like a pale ale gone bad. Not much aftertaste. I didn’t finish the bottle.

2.6
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 22, 2005
On tap. Reddish, orange color. Malty aroma. Malty flavor, some hints of orange and spice. Nice "full" mouthfeel and an easy malty finish.
