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.

An honest attempt, sertainly a good gateway beer. As though beer were the center of the universe. Pour is lovely. Caramelly and clear. ORange around the edges. Good head that dies and leaves a nice trickly mess. Nose is nonexistant. Sweetness. Cardboard and corn. Not much else honestly no hops. Flavors are broader versions of this. Lots of Brown sugar sweetness. Still the cardboard and corn. Corn aftertaste is incredibly complex though. Like biting into some of the best weet corn youve ever had. No hops?

GTAEgeek (2117) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2017
On tap at Fuzzys. 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 (270) - Mission, 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 (8049) - 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 (401) - 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.

Pours an iced tea brown with an off white medium head of foam. Fairly descent taste and very smooth. Somewhat ordinary but enjoyable.

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.

This kind of works for me. Aroma is a bit malty but light. Flavor is malty buy pretty dry. A little caramel like, with a little acidic background. Just a pinch of bitter. Pours amber with a lace of thick white foam. A bit sharp carbonation thats off putting.
