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.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance:
Pours a clear, copper color body with a thin, white head. Minimal lacing. Crazy carbonation.

Aroma:
Damp grains and light honey notes. Light sweetness. Rather blah.

Taste:
Lightly toasted malts. Grainy. Fresh biscuits. Earthy hop presence towards the end but is inoffensive.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and light. Semi-sweet finish. Crisp.

Overall:
Nothing special here. It's easy to drink and inoffensive. I wouldn't run out trying to find this one, but on a hot summer day, this could be a fine grilling companion.
