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.

Slightly soapy smelling. Hazy color, hazy taste, bitter sour palate. I remember having this on Tap and liking it. In the bottle it is not so good really...

An average amber ale that works as a light-fare summer swill. Nice color. Modest head. Nothing too complex on the tongue. $4.99 for a longneck six is cool. Maybe a good introductory amber ale for the Bud people?

Virtually no head and very little carbonation in my bottle. Increased in bitterness as the beer went on.

Has an almost skunky smell and poor taste. Overly carbonated and not much going for the palate.

The bottle poured a slightly cloudy copper-colored beverage covered with a modest white foamy head. The head retention was average but left no lacing on the glass. The aromas were straight forward, dominated by malt with notes of caramel. It had a medium body with a slightly creamy texture and lively carbonation. The flavor starts off slightly impressions of bittering hops mixed with caramel malt then settles down to a sweet, smooth malt middle and has a long slightly bitter finish.

Malty sweet and grainy aroma. Candy sweet, caramel and light toffee flavors. Some dusty hops at the finish. Cloying, sticky mouthfeel. I don’t care for this one to much. Skip it.

Ratman197 (14826) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 8, 2005
Clear orange-amber with a white head. Caramel malt aroma with a hint of orange. Sweet malt flavor with very minamal hops. Bitter finish.

a very malty amber. good color and aroma. very heavy on the malts. probably a little over done. Decent, but labored to finish this as it got warm

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Draught at Breckenridge Brewery, Breckenridge, CO, October 2012, GABF week. Score improved slightly, still not a great beer. Light grain and some yeast, but very little flavor or aroma. 6/2/2005 3/3/3/2/9. Brown. Lightly hopped with a bitter taste, in fact this might be better classified as a bitter. Unremarkable but no noticeable flaws.

Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 26, 2005
22 oz bomber. Pours amber with a small head that settled quickly. The aroma is caramel, grain and faint hops. Taste is more grains with some corn and dishrag hops. Totally sucked.
