COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-flavored amber ale made with roasted caramel malt. Richly colored and medium-bodied, Alleycat is an assertive blend of malts with a sprightly cascade of hops.

Interesting aroma of caramel and hops, the combination works surprisingly well - quite sweet up front, with lots of light fruits (cherries, strawberry), that combine with light grain and a slight hoppiness, giving this, at times, a flavor that is almost like a childrens’ breakfast cereal - slighty crisp, dry hop finish - smooth, medium bodied - not bad at all.

Their amber has the piney hop flavor of Indica that is chewy as well. Easy drinking with a little sweetness in front.

Bottled: Very enjoyable. Attractive copper color with hints of citrus and hops in the nose. Sweet toasted malts are apparent on the front end - if it is allowed to warm adequately. I’d definitely buy this again.

Bronze color. Caramel, hop, yeast nose. Fairly decent. Thin and bitter flavor. Long finish. Mostly dry. Some lingering caramel, malt flavors. Nothing in the front, all end.

Solid Amber. Nice body and flavor. Hoppy, citrus undertone and smooth drinkable beer. Lost Coast makes great beer!!! You heard it here.

On tap at the brewpup in Eureka, CA. I tried three amber ales at the pub (two specials) and this was the most accesible to the average beer drinker, therefore my girlfriend liked it the best of the three. Sort of "lager-like" for an amber, at least that is what my notes say.

Light/clear orange with a thin offwhite head. Faintly hoppy nose, some hints of caramel. watery thin caramel and cola sweetness. No hops detected on my tastebuds...slightly malty aftertaste.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2004
Amber with a moderate head and good lacing. Aroma is a balance of hop and malt. Start is sweet then acidic with a lingering dry finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2004
So-so. Amber/copper body with beige head. Aroma was slightly hoppy, mild citrus, big malt, caramel. A bit astringent to the palate. Thin body. Moderately hoppy flavor. Some citrus with some malt.

Since when has anybody taken in an alleycat? There is definitely a reason for that. Here is a question, what does a cat eat in an alley? Well, did you ever watch saturday morning cartoons? Do you remember when the cats ate the old fish bones? Picture that in real life! Just in case you didn’t have a childhood, don’t drink this beer!
