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.

RRRozie (22) - Cortland, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a medium golden-brown with a thin, fine head. Aroma has just a trace of maltiness. Taste is crisp and dry, more like a classic Nut Brown than an Amber Ale. Palette is long and dry, with a slowly-emerging bitterness. Not what I expected in an Amber, but very good for a Nut Brown. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Very light scents of malt and some grass. Pours a pretty red orange. The off-white head is gone in a flash. Light lacing. More sours than the average amber but it works with a strong malt foundation. Fizzy mouthfeel

A full body ale with a taste of nectar not really too heavy but a great overall ale.

12 ounce can from the sampler pack purchased at Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Crisp and refreshing. Pretty average but also pretty good.

Been awhile...finding old stuff I haven't rated. Pretty standard boring amber ale. Mild malt with a little bit and earthy finish.

bigcat03 (340) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - OCT 29, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2017 Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Ruby/amber color and a foamy tan head. Aroma is pleasant with toffee, caramel, and a good dose of toasted malt. Initial taste is watery and mild with hints of caramel and some roasted malts. Aftertaste is very mild...not much there. Body is thin but carbonation is spot on. Much like every other Breckenridge brew I've tried, this one is lacking any real conviction. It's watery and rather "meh" about being a beer. This brewery wins the participation award for brewing beer. They're trying, but apparently not very hard.

SampleReports1 (1) - Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA - AUG 16, 2017 does not count
This beer has a mild aroma of a wheat beer with a slight hint of the flavors to come. The appearance is a beautiful amber, gold. The taste is the real kicker. I see a lot of reviews claiming a grainy taste, but I am mostly coming through with a honey. Not just any honey though, clover honey. Light and sparkling, somewhat thin, but very well suited for the style and flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. A little light on flavor, but well balanced and refreshing

3.1
GTAEgeek (2502) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2017
On tap at Fuzzy’s. Clear, caramel color, with a big, frothy, beige head. The aroma is toffee, vanilla, smooth caramel, spruce, and spice. Sweet and syrupy, with a light bitterness. Light to medium body, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This is a fair beer, but a little weak.

2.7
justsayswell (285) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Clear amber pour. Rocky, chunky white head with large bubbles. Nose is faint bitter hops and pale malt. Crackery malt base, caramel, spicy hops. Finishes dry and a little metallic. Not really my thing, but not awful.
