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.

I'd like more hops, but it is well-balanced with the sweetness. I wouldn't go out of my way to get it.

Average everything. Head, lace, taste, everything. Some hoppy flavor here. No much else.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Copper, carmel color. Sweet metallic aroma. Not too much character, really. This is a fairly bland brew.

An ok beer that is refreshing but not all that interesting. Went to the brewery in Denver and the beer on tap was pretty Yum (Pale Ale)

Copper color, head dissipated quickly. Slight malty yeast with some powered sugar nose. Malty but not sweet taste, thin.

Very effervescant,no head,roasted hoppy aroma,slightly heavy roasted malt flavor at first with a light bitterness followed by a watery sensation around and under the tongue before a bitter tanic flavor is left on the top of your tongue.I don't taste the hops that I think I smell.I guess they are there, but not the flavoring type, just aromatic and the bittering variety.Definety reminds me of a brew pub beer.Not really my mug of "BREW".

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, apricot, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Quite an improvement from the sample I had many years ago. Ordinary, but no problems.

Had this on a recent trip to Steamboat and thought it was alright. Wouldn’t mind being able to get it in ohio.
