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.

Ungstrup (29335) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 21, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and lightly hopped, while the flavor is boring with light notes of berries, leading to a dry end.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Pours slightly hazy amber with a small, white head. Unpleasant vegetable aroma. Thin and watery body with a touch of caramel. Not sure if this is intended this way, but it’s definitely unclean and inharmonious. 170406

Clear brown beer. Crisp and dry palate. Mild malt. Not much else going on but a perfectly serviceable beer.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2006
Hazy amber color. Smells like a fart. Thin mouthfeel without anything to part it from water.

This stuff is quite widely distributed. Why? I know there are much more deserving beers in Colorado.

bu11zeye (11943) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 11, 2009
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small beige head. Aroma of nuts, cocoa, roasted malt, grain, and subtle pumpkin spice. Flavor of caramel, roasted malt, and nuts.

argo0 (11535) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 22, 2004
Clear light copper with small off-white head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, some caramel, some spice. Taste is moderately sweet, floral, spicy, some caramel, finishes with decent earthiness. Medium body. A bit oversweetened, but this is a nice beer.

bhensonb (11095) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 16, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Strong roasted caramel aroma, but not a sweet aroma. Coppery amber color with a tan head that laced patchily while it filmed. Medium body with almost chewy carbonation. Flavor is a bit malty, and seems to have a touch of sour to go with very light bitter. The aroma changes with consumption - a bit reminiscent of a urinal? The finish calms down to a rather dry malt impression with not all that much bitter. A bit different from anything I’ve had before. Not bad, but not something demanding repetition.

brokensail (10958) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
On tap @ Breckenridge @ The Ballpark. Pours a clear amber pour with a white head. Nutty, toasted malt aroma. Sweet caramel, bread, and a nice floral hop note. Flavor is solid nutty malts and toast. Bread, toffee, and a bit of caramel. Mild hops. Slight grassiness on the finish. Nice sweetness, but not cloying.
