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.

Butter/malt nose. Butterscotch flavor, some malt in the finish. That butter lingers. If I tried this in a blind taste test I would assume that it came from Middle Ages..

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2005 (22 oz bottle: $3.30 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) This is a moderately sweet and malty amber with a mild bitterness to balance out the beer, but this straightforward amber ale doesn’t do enough to rise above the legions of ambers to be above average, so average it is. The nose is pretty light, but is balanced between light malt and hops. Medium bodied, but doesn’t excite the palate. Standard amber color. Off-white head pours to an average size, fading to a thick rim around the glass. Lots of scattered lace decorate the glass. Average all the way.

One bottle from Beers of the World. Poured a thick white head that quickly disapapted. Medium smooth body with various fruit flavors mixed with hops. I’m not a fan of the Hops bite at the end, but overall it was ok.

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2005
Deep copper/ruby edged pour with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, toffee, caramel. Tastes malty, with hopcit, fruit, and a finishing caramel cognac. A very good amber ale.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 17, 2004
Cloudy amber pour with a quickly fading off-white head. Sweet caramel, malty and a touch hoppy aroma. Same in the flavor department. Good body thickness, flavors start good but there is something missing in the middle. Flavors fade into a sourish finish with a pronounced hoppy bite. Not a fan of the style but it is pretty good nonetheless.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Clear amber with a fresh fruity hop aroma. Flavors of sweet malts lead into a pale ale-like fruity, hoppy character. Finishes with a malty chocolate flavor. Pretty tasty.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Muddy amber color, thin, brief beige head. Aroma: an all-malty affair, minor floral hops, mostly caramel and a touch of toffee, with a glimmer of fruit. sweet and appealing. Taste: more of the same from the aroma, save for a hoppier bite appearing on the palate that fades back until next we sip. A bit of roastiness, too, but, again, it’s all caramel and some fruit, a bit of apple and apricot, masked in sweet candy goo and sprinkled with hops. A nice, juicy, tasty quaffer. Easy drinker, ’nuff said..except that I like the cartoon cat on the label, he looks like a tough little kitty...probably needs a stronger beer in that mug...or maybe he’s just getting started...something bugs me, though...I can dig the hat, eyepatch, ring in the ear, but why’s a cat gotta wear a shirt? That’s just silly!

AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2004
pink/tan clear body with a soapy white head on its shoulders, piney malt hop nose, sweet malt flavor with a good hop bite, clean buttery finish, I have to commend Lost Coast on their labels, if I were a Lost Coast label then I might be able to truly like myself for who I am.

OldGrowth (2854) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Bottle at the Freakin Frog. Ok nose, carmel/citrus/ something funky. Its been in other beers, think in the hops. Clean orange amber color. Small head. Bitter flavors, malty. Carmel and sour. Though I can’t place what it is. Thinner body, litely creamy mouthfeel. Tasty bitter amber

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Amber color with a stable two finger head of bone colored bubbles. Smells like an amber, with lightly toasted malt and hint of herb/grassy hops. Fairly dry with a touch of malt swetness mid gulp. Decent balance early with malt and hops well mixed. Drys out and gets a bit woody in the finish. Just another amber brew, drinkable with few faults and little more.
