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.

Normally don’t drink ambers but it was in the sampler pack. Very slight bready/caramel aroma. Standard golden amber color with a thin head. Light in flavor but get some light caramel, some biscuit and some light hop on the finish. Was a little thin but not bad. Good beer to use to move someone off of macros.

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.

GTAEgeek (2343) - 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.

justsayswell (281) - 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.

jredmond (8518) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Draft at the Marlin Bar. Pours a clear amber body with thin white lacing. Nose is bitter hop and sweet malt. Mouthfeel is bitter, astringent and spicy with noticeable malt character drowning out any semblance of a hop profile.

PanMarek (462) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Transparent, dark yellow with white foam. Toasted cereal malt nose with some grassy hops. Taste starts sharp, but the malts take over and smooth it out. Woody, some caramel and a bitter, resin hops finish. Medium body, light fizz.

jflopsu (1725) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Pours a clear amber with light tan head. A malty base with caramel. A malt based taste as well with caramel, grains and light fruits. A dry malt aftertaste.

jsporrer (1086) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Pours an iced tea brown with an off white medium head of foam. Fairly descent taste and very smooth. Somewhat ordinary but enjoyable.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 16, 2016
Tasting flight at the taproom in Denver. Amber with an off white head, honey biscuity malt aroma. Medium bodied with a chewey texture. This is a malt forward Amber Ale that is very English in style, the first decent beer I tried at this taproom.
