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.

The beer pours a gorgeous shade of deep reddish brown with the perfect head, but thats where the beauty really ends. The taste is very average a little bitter for such a timid beer, and you dont feel like youll really remember drinking it after youre done. Solid, but not really anything special.

rjplumer (1023) - 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.

Tessic (1077) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2015
This ale poured a medium amber colour with a quickly dissipating head. Scents include corn, berries and cream. First swig was slightly thin but flavours of fruit and light hops make up for the mouthfeel. Finish is slightly bitter with fruity hops lingering.

Draft pour at the field location. Rating from notes. Pours a clear copper color with a foam head. Spice, malty aroma. Sweet caramel, and a light bready feature. Maybe a little nutty. Smooth and rich. Decent amber.
