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.

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

"I think it is just repackaged Coors Light" that was the perception I had at the time. I still think it lacks flavor and the ambience that better amber ales possess though. I guess I was frustrated at not being able to find decent locally brewed beer while skiing last spring in colorado (i wasnít looking in the right places).

Amber looking with medium white head. I didnít like the taste of this on any level.

mockerboy (52) - Kansas, USA - APR 30, 2004
Amber colored, faint bready/malty nose, smooth, drinkable, a little thin but good. I was pleasently suprised.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 25, 2004
My roommate and I had one of these in memory of Pat Tillman, a true American hero in every sense of the word. One of the best amber ales I've tried.

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

This was one of my favorite beers when I started into my beer-freakiness. Now, after sampling so many other beers, it pales in comparison, but is still a good beer. True amber with no head. Smooth and lightly carameled. Thereís only bitterness on the exhale, but itís undercut by a sweet finish.

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

Originally, I loved this as my favorite Breck ale, but then I discovered stouts. I still find it to be a solid amber. I particularly enjoyed quaffing it at the original brewpub.
