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.

An honest attempt, sertainly a good gateway beer. As though beer were the center of the universe. Pour is lovely. Caramelly and clear. ORange around the edges. Good head that dies and leaves a nice trickly mess. Nose is nonexistant. Sweetness. Cardboard and corn. Not much else honestly no hops. Flavors are broader versions of this. Lots of Brown sugar sweetness. Still the cardboard and corn. Corn aftertaste is incredibly complex though. Like biting into some of the best weet corn you’ve ever had. No hops?

Great amber color with delightful caramel, toast and floral aroma. Honeysuckle. Taste is stronger on the caramel and honeysuckle. A lighter amber body with some fizziness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Some wonderful toffee and caramel flavors in this beer, coming out more as it warms. The best part of this beer was its taste.

ellolovey (453) - Georgia, USA - JUN 22, 2014
12 oz can. Pours a hazy copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of corn, caramel, grains, and pale malts. Taste just like it smells. Sweet malts, grains, corn, a bit of saltiness, and a bit watered down. Lingering taste of stale malts on the finish. Not really impressed.

Lightrider (307) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a dark honey amber. Aroma is weak but malt. Taste is a wash and on the low side but clean. Finish is crisp.
