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 a golden color color with a white head. Looks more like a pilsner than an amber. Nothing sets this apart from other beers. 12 oz. bottle from a sample pack

Sublety. That sums it up pretty well. Not a whole lot of anything, but pretty good all the way around......Aroma is sweet and caramel malty....Appearance, not gonna lie, it’s not going to wow you with it’s pour. No head to speak of, sort of boring. But that amber color is very nice....Tasty. It’s not much of anything. It’s smooth, and sweet. I wouldn’t call it bland, there’s a lot going on, but nothing distinguishable to me really....Mouthfeel, it’s smooth, and buttery. I want to hold it in my mouth a little longer than normal....Overall a nice beer that I certainly want to drink more of!!

Niall73 (2111) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2015
Can at home while in Jacksonville. Amber with a white head. Malty, fruit cake aroma. Light body, median carbonation. Thin, with caramel, light dark fruits, lemon, light metal... Not great.

BierMeHoos (229) - 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.

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.
