Brew Review-Breckenridge Avalanche
This amber ale is made in Denver, Colorado. Starting the brewery, Richard Squire became well known for his oatmeal stout he brewed for his friends. I plan to try that when I get chance. This beer was only slightly above average for a craft brew. If I had not gotten it for 3 bucks at a Flyer Saucer Pint Night, I might have been a little bitter. Not the good hoppy bitter, the bad Manning Face bitter. The beer has a blend of pale and caramel malts for sweet and hoppy taste. Basically a blend of an English Pale ale and an American amber ale. The fruity hops are rather subtle as the sweet maltiness is the essence of this beer. Also, the yeast character of this beer is really noticeable.
