UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 Bottle from The Scottish Real Ale Shop & Beers of Europe. Tropical & citrus fruit aroma. Golden yellow colour. Flavour cereal biscuit & citrus fruits. Bitter aftertaste. Good one.

Bottle. Looks like a slightly hazy lager topped with an attractive white head. Aroma packs a flowery, hoppy punch with hints of citrus. The flower/hop notes are, if anything, even more intense in the flavour. Finish is very dry with hints of a wheat beer tang. Similar to the Phoenix Pilsner at Manchester’s Sand Bar. I would love to find this excellent beer on cask.

Cask handpull at Three Judges, Glasgow. Beer of the day for me. Gold, thin white head. Lovely citrusy bitter. Superb. Great beer in the Dark Star Hophead, Oakham JHB line. Excellent. So good I had another pint of it.

Really good aroma . Excellent blond colour . A prefect starbright beer . Superb hop profile . Good clean resin flavours and very fresh flavours. The malt character is high quality pale malt also like whisky malt carbonation light but good and soft .

Cask conditioned at The Three Judges, Glasgow. Golden colour, minimal head. Lovely citrussy aroma, also with notes of flowers and tropical fruits. The hoppy flavour has also citrus and tropical fruits, much like Crouch Vale Brewers Gold Extra, but with a more distinct bitterness in the finish. Another great beer!

[cask at Thomson’s, Edinburgh] Fyne Ales are one of Scotland’s most under-rated breweries, and Avalanche is their outstanding beer. When kept and served well on cask it’s the quintessential session beer – golden and clear with a decent head retention. Fantastic aromas of soft, grassy hops with a backbone of fruit. On the palate the flavours are subtly bitter hops with a wonderful citrus flavour, leading to a moreish bitter aftertaste from the malt. One of the very best Scottish beers, and any pub I walk into with this on, I know what I’m having before I reach the bar [03032009]

Leighton (22027) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2011
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours clear, rich gold with a sturdy, white head. Has a very fresh hop aroma, straw, citrus light pine. Light to medium sweet flavor, well balanced, some straw and hay, zesty citrus, mild earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Crisp finish, dry straw, faint toast and earth, subtle grass and citrus. This was a pretty fantastic beer.
