look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5
Silk-screened bomber depicting mnts, poured into a shaker, Avalanche is a clear bronze, with a decent, olive-tinged ivory head that leaves pretty heavy lace.
Smell is fairly classic American amber, wet grassy hops and a little bready, but with a bit of an unusual zing that I can't place
Taste is not very good, thin and watery, sharp metallic bite on the finish that really lingers, yuck. I noticed this in their Oatmeal Stout, although it was better hidden by the roast. Here it just overwhelms (and is probably the zing on the nose), must be their water...
Mouthfeel is slick and watery.
Drinkability is pretty low for me, that metallic aftertaste as was just too much, I could barely finish the first glass let alone the whole bomber...
