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 an amber hue with very little head. Aroma is light malt and no hop notes. Taste is watery with a light malt taste. Pretty terrible offering from breckenridge.

Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. Amber with an off white head, honey biscuity malt aroma. Medium bodied with a chewey texture. This is a malt forward Amber Ale that is very English in style, the first decent beer I tried at this taproom.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

This kind of works for me. Aroma is a bit malty but light. Flavor is malty buy pretty dry. A little caramel like, with a little acidic background. Just a pinch of bitter. Pours amber with a lace of thick white foam. A bit sharp carbonation that’s off putting.

ADfan (797) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 17, 2016
On tap it has a honey amber color with a small head. Mild citrus with a maltiness on the nose. Taste is pretty average with some wood, herbs and an earthiness to it. Average finish.

lbianchi66 (294) - FRANCE - DEC 15, 2015
Robe cuivrée et opaque, la mousse se dissipe vite. Arômes résineux et céréales. Goût caramel et résine. Final un peu métallique. Aqueuse. Bof.

Sirmixsomewhat (180) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2015
The beer pours a gorgeous shade of deep reddish brown with the perfect head, but that’s where the beauty really ends. The taste is very average a little bitter for such a timid beer, and you don’t feel like you’ll really remember drinking it after you’re done. Solid, but not really anything special.

rjplumer (952) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 9, 2015
Caramel malt aroma. A brown clear body with a hint of amber. This is topped with a thin white head. Thin caramel malt taste. Smooth and clean to the finish. Light bodied and refreshing.
