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.

The bottle poured a slightly cloudy copper-colored beverage covered with a modest white foamy head. The head retention was average but left no lacing on the glass. The aromas were straight forward, dominated by malt with notes of caramel. It had a medium body with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. The flavor starts off slightly impressions of bittering hops mixed with caramel malt then settles down to a sweet, smooth malt middle and has a long slightly bitter finish.

Malty sweet and grainy aroma. Candy sweet, caramel and light toffee flavors. Some dusty hops at the finish. Cloying, sticky mouthfeel. I don’t care for this one to much. Skip it.

a very malty amber. good color and aroma. very heavy on the malts. probably a little over done. Decent, but labored to finish this as it got warm

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Draught at Breckenridge Brewery, Breckenridge, CO, October 2012, GABF week. Score improved slightly, still not a great beer. Light grain and some yeast, but very little flavor or aroma. 6/2/2005 3/3/3/2/9. Brown. Lightly hopped with a bitter taste, in fact this might be better classified as a bitter. Unremarkable but no noticeable flaws.

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.

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 (5006) - 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.
