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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Amber. From the smell, I can already tell that this is going to be a dreadful experience. Exclusive malt tones of toffee, caramel, pale and caramel malts. Not much hop presense in the aroma and into the flavor. Tastes of sweet malts and the atributes of pale and caramel malts. Fairly simple and one dimensional, but this is drinkable.

PorterPounder (7616) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2004 Rerate Very bland and boring, no head, even more of a pronounced metallic finish. Balanced, yet boring with no high notes on either the hop end or malt end. Original 2.9 Bottle - Fox and Hound Pub in Austin, Tx. Medium copper appearance, off white head, decent lacing. Brief aroma of nuts and wort but settles quickly. Flavor has some piney notes with a bit of a nutty back end, but very subdued. Mouthfeel starts off strong but turns metallic near the end. Overall decent.

A great beer, especially if you can get your hands on a glass while in Breckenridge. Nice copper color, mild finish, good anytime.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2004
This is an amber I can get used to. Not the usual heavy bitterness; instead, a pseudo-sweet/bitter blend that is refreshing and invigorating. (Geez, does that sound dirty?) Try it.

BeerandBlues2 (12479) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Pours copper with a frothy white head, some lacing. Hoppy and piney aromas. Mildly bitter flavor with citrus notes. Medium and refreshing palate.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Appearance: perfect amber color, short white head. Aroma: rich and malty, with herbal/vegetal notes and coppery tinges. Taste: neat little hop appearance at the fore, with a lingering finish. Body is light to medium, but this ale possesses sufficient character and proves to be consistently flavorful. A nicely downable session brew, an adequate amber.

SupermanDoha (5) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - SEP 1, 2004 does not count
This beer is another in the fine world of Breckinridge beers. This is a great tasting beer to go great with a nice frosted glass to enhance the flavor. I enjoy this beer anytime of the day or week and recommend it to those in need of a good tasting brew.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 28, 2004
Golden color, good lacing. Aroma has some metallic, copper feel to it. Medium body. Taste is metallic and bitter. If there are hops, I cant find them. Just not coming together.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - AUG 20, 2004
Bottle - Pours a reddish dark amber with a thin off-white head that quickly disappeared. Aroma is a little hard to describe ... not hops, not malt ... some sort of yeast, I guess. Flavor is slightly sweet and yeasty without much in the way of distinct malt or hops. Kind of a "meaty" taste. Finish is slightly bitter; I am assuming from hops, but not at all in the traditional hop way. Some yeast sourness in the aftertaste as well. I got this as a gift and its a good thing I only have one ... not particularly good.
