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.

Breckenridge Avalanche Amber Ale has a medium, foamy, off-white head and a fairly hazy, somewhat bubbly, amber appearance. Lacing is significant with this beer. The aroma is of sweet, brown bread, and the flavor is of the same, with sugar, bread crust, and a very mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Breckenridge Avalance Amber Ale finishes wet, pleasant, and highly drinkable. For those who enjoy a mellow, amber ale, this is a wonderful choice. I sure am enjoying this review!

I'm currently living in Breckenridge. I get to drink this beer fresh from the brewery in Breck. I have to say I have had this beer on numerous occasions, and have been very disappointed. The taste is way to malty and has a bad foam head. Has the taste of skunked beer that has gone bad months go.


Every Monday the brewery has $1 pints night. Maybe they are giving us what we pay for.
