BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Breckenridge Brewery
Colorado, United States
breckbrew.com

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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, anytime beer. Aromas of pale grains, a semi-sweet middle and a clean-as-Colorado snow finish make this our best-selling beer.

Not much to say an average beer. Taste like a cross between a lager and a ale.

As a white ale drinker, I’m not big on darker beers but this one is probably the best amber ale I’ve had. Nice, caramel-coffee flavor followed by sweet malt and just a touch of hops. The perfect amber ale if not a perfect ale by itself.

Copper amber ale. Has a slight coffee flavor with a roasted malt taste. Slightly hoppy but not over powering. Definitely my go to in a Amber ale. I buy it year around!

Pours a muddy brownish copper color with a half finger of head. The nose has faint notes of caramel. This offering is drinkable and very sessionable but not at all memorable.

Not gonna spend much time on this review because it's not worth it. It's a decent amber. Nothing stands out about it at all. Average at best. Drinkable if you don't have a better amber around. It's ok.

12 oz can with a best by date of mid-December, so I assume that means this is about 3 months old. A decent amber ale. A little bit too sweet with just a touch of hops. Fairly one-dimensional.

Vibrant amber, generous, creamy golden tinted foam. Amazed this is from a can.
No fancy descriptors involving notes of sunset infused raisins or Himalayan coffee drenched in mid morning dew, just really yummy, smooth beer flavor.
