Review: Breckenridge Avalanche Ale

Avalanche AleI’ve been looking for Avalanche Ale for some time and hadn’t been able to find it near my house. So my dear friends Shobha and Ed brought me a sixer from World Market (a surprisingly good place to pick-up beer). I must say that this is one tasty, sessionable beer. I can admit that I’m always a bit put off by the can, but I would happily pick up this beer again despite the aluminum.

Considering the beer was from a can, it had decent carbonation with a light head and subtle lacing on the glass. It pours into a deep amber color – a really pretty beer.

The aroma was a little malty with hints of nuts and caramel. Avalanche Ale has a really nice, smooth taste. Again, its subtle caramel flavor comes through on the front with a slight hoppiness on the back. I really enjoyed the crispness of the beer and found it really refreshing.
