I’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.
