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.

TH28 (182) - - APR 5, 2013
Pours a light brown/amber with small white foam cap that dissipates quickly. Aroma is all malt, with nice caramel, nutty, and toffee notes. The taste is where this beer goes wrong. Starts with slightly nutty malt taste up front, with absolutely nothing behind it. Instead of having layers of taste, the initial nutty taste immediately fades into thin, watery nothing. Finish is a lasting, somewhat astringent, unpleasant nutty malt. It’s not often I toss a beer out, but this one went down the drain

BierMeHoos (215) - Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Minor head and amber color. Weak aroma and very thin palate. Flavor has almost no interesting notes or hops, light malts. Not going to lie I'm not impressed.

Too toasted for me, in aroma and flavor. Still drinkable, but nothing too exciting. Not very flavorful.

Amber with a small white head. Earth. Caramel. Nutty Cardboard. Bland. Inoffensive. Does the job but very plain.

pinkzambia (1560) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Tap @ Sporting News: awful excuse for an amber ale. Resembles a thick dark lager. Doesn’t even compare to something like Mac & Jacks African amber. Nice looking off white head. Grapes aroma and bowl of Cheerios aftertaste.

rjwhite41 (53) - osceola, Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Pours a light to medium cloudy brown with a small off white head. Smells of caramel and butter. Tastes of caramel, butterscotch with a mild hop bitterness. Finishes dry. Really thin. Will never drink again.

bkurtz (900) - PERU - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle - Pours amber with a creamy head. Sweet aroma of caramel and bread, not bad. Semi-sweet taste with some berry and slightly off finish. Average at best.

N3lson1 (302) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Drank from a pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice amber color with little carbonation. Has nice aromas of caramel. A decent amber leaves a very sweet taste on the tounge. Purchased as part of a twelve pack sampler with vanilla porter, lucky u IPA,and summer bright ale.
