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.

Had this as a 12oz draft in Keystone, CO. Nothing impressive, but definitely easy to tip back when it is on tap. It is a little watered down, but you can still tell it is an amber beer. You can't beat $4 drafts of this, but I wouldn't pay a cent more.
