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 nice golden color with thick tan head. Large carbonation bubbles rise throughout. Aroma is very fresh, smells lighly of yeast. The carbonation on this one was so high I could barely taste it; mostly just carbonation bubbles attacking my tongue. The carbonation makes the beer so light, I wish there was a little more body to it. I detect some esters on both my tongue and nose, I wonder what kind of yeast they use. Not your typical amber ale. One Iím glad Iíve tried but would probably not have again.

bottle. pours tan with a beige head. malt aroma is inviting. has a caramel toffee taste that is overpowered by a hoppy bitterness. leaves an almond flavor that is not pleasant. thanks to Lumpy for this bottle he brought back from the wastelands.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Bottle. Pours amber with a thin head. The nose is strong of oatmeal. Not bad, bud not great. The first taste pulled out is oatmeal, and it overwhelms the secondary notes of alcohol and caramel. It tastes like an oatmeal stout without the oatmeal. I cannot think of any food I would pair this with and I didnít really like it on its own. But, it is worth a try. Who knows, you may like it.

Light amber color, barely any head. I enjoyed the vanilla and caramel flavor. Still a little bland. OK amber.

Bottle. The comercial description says "Subtlety..." That about sums it up. A little sweetness in the taste, maybe some malt. Bland.

Harsh and unpleasant. No roasted malt flavor. Sour and cloying. Overall, ugh.

Malty sweet up front (caramel) but the finish is like medicine. Unimpressive!
