Breckenridge Avalanche ....

Tonight's beer is Avalanche Ale, an Amber Ale, from Breckenridge Brewery.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 4.4% ABV.  Their web site lists IBUs at 19.

Avalanche poured with a medium, slightly brown (not quite tan) head.  The beer color is a brownish amber.  The aroma has some sweetness of caramel and a little hops.  Mild bodied.  The taste has some malt, some caramel and is a little grassy.  A very slight bitterness at the end of the sip.  I am not a big fan of a lot of Amber Ales because they are a little light on taste, and this one falls into that category for me.  Not a bad beer, but a little "thin".
