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.

RRRozie (22) - Cortland, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a medium golden-brown with a thin, fine head. Aroma has just a trace of maltiness. Taste is crisp and dry, more like a classic Nut Brown than an Amber Ale. Palette is long and dry, with a slowly-emerging bitterness. Not what I expected in an Amber, but very good for a Nut Brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Clear amber with a frothy, off white head that lasts. Aromas of toasted malt, caramel, biscuit and light spice. Flavor is the same. Medium bodied, crisp with a dry end.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a malt and wheat/grass smell, not bad. Appearance- this beer pours a clear golden copper color with a thick white head. Taste- Big malt flavor up front up the after / finishing taste is rather empty. Palate- A medium bodied beer with heavy carbonation. Overall- An average beer

Shot (259) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Pours copper with a thin head that dissipates to a ring. Aromas of sweet malt and slight spice. Flavors of sweet malt, slight fruit. Finishes with a bit of citrus. No real hop presence. Thin mouthfeel. Not a very good beer.

Barreras (1265) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - JUN 3, 2015
Pours a light amber color with a light sweet aroma. Possibly caramel and/or toffe. Taste is very light and mildly flavored. A thin beer that was good for the style but lacked complexity.

Rated based on notes taken 28 May 2012 -- I thought this was a solid example of a standard Amber.

Beersmithbacon (111) - San Luis Rey, California, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Session like lean and watery. Light toffee malts, no hops, cloudy very spritz like carbonation. No bad finish but no real finish either.

bartzluke (331) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into a glass mug. An aggressive pour produced a moderate lingering one-finger white head. Dissipates after a minute or two. Mostly clear, great carbonation, and a beautiful amber/copper color. Nose is pleasant and rich-- lots of malts, some caramel, some toast. Sweet. The of nose that just draws you into taking a drink. Medium bodied, bordering on creamy. Taste is a good balance better bitter and sweet. Starts out more bitter, fades to sweet, then leaves a bit of lingering bitterness. Caramel and bread. A very drinkable beer, overall. Definitely subtle. Nothing going on that wows me, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Great with the potato hash I am eating.

Drjohnrock (549) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Draft at Tavern On The Bend on April 10, 2015. Dark amber hue, good malty nose with sweetness not overdone, somewhat thin body, tasty sweet malty flavor with enough bitterness to keep things balanced. Nice sessionable brew. The low overall marks must be because Breckenridge lacks beer snob appeal. As always, I don’t give a rat’s ass about shit like that.

joejames (361) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, Pours clear amber, quick head, no real lace or retention. Aroma of nuts and caramel. Taste is sweet. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes dry but sweet. Tasting notes of grass, nuts, caramel and a little pine. Very plain and uninspired.
