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.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Pours a dark red/orange, small white head towards the edges. Aroma of Malt and rusting metal. Flavor is malty, and a little spicy. Palate is thin. Thanks to Heemer for this one.

Bad beer. I could tell you why it’s bad but it’s not worth the time. Just humor me. This is bad beer.

Norton (333) - Southside, Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2004
Draft. Muddy dark bronze. Slightly creamy semi-whispy white head which lasted for duration. Interesting bite on the back of my mouth, somewhat metallic yet disturbingly appealing. Silky smooth texture yet toasty & woody flavor dominates. Not bitter. Color me wacky but I thought this was decent.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Amber. From the smell, I can already tell that this is going to be a dreadful experience. Exclusive malt tones of toffee, caramel, pale and caramel malts. Not much hop presense in the aroma and into the flavor. Tastes of sweet malts and the atributes of pale and caramel malts. Fairly simple and one dimensional, but this is drinkable.

medium golden color, white head, mostly not lasting. hops are mild at best with decent apple and burned sugar notes.

PorterPounder (6912) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Rerate Very bland and boring, no head, even more of a pronounced metallic finish. Balanced, yet boring with no high notes on either the hop end or malt end. Original 2.9 Bottle - Fox and Hound Pub in Austin, Tx. Medium copper appearance, off white head, decent lacing. Brief aroma of nuts and wort but settles quickly. Flavor has some piney notes with a bit of a nutty back end, but very subdued. Mouthfeel starts off strong but turns metallic near the end. Overall decent.

JdoubleyouS (82) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2004
A great beer, especially if you can get your hands on a glass while in Breckenridge. Nice copper color, mild finish, good anytime.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
This is an amber I can get used to. Not the usual heavy bitterness; instead, a pseudo-sweet/bitter blend that is refreshing and invigorating. (Geez, does that sound dirty?) Try it.

BeerandBlues2 (11674) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Pours copper with a frothy white head, some lacing. Hoppy and piney aromas. Mildly bitter flavor with citrus notes. Medium and refreshing palate.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: perfect amber color, short white head. Aroma: rich and malty, with herbal/vegetal notes and coppery tinges. Taste: neat little hop appearance at the fore, with a lingering finish. Body is light to medium, but this ale possesses sufficient character and proves to be consistently flavorful. A nicely downable session brew, an adequate amber.
