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.

Bottle. Amber color, medium whitish head, nice lacing on my glass. Aroma is mildly hoppy, some malt and caramel in there too, fairly weak. Flavor has a sturdy malt profile, some caramel, and a touch of hops in the finish. Smooth, a little light on the body, good level of carbonation. Another respectable brew from Lost Coast.

Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel and biscuits. Flavor has notes of caramel and pale malts, some grapefruit and toffee. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Mild hoppage. Medium-thin body with subtle carbonation. Decent head retention. Drinkable but boring.

Interesting, I will try again. Poured cloudy amber with a small head. Flavor is somewhat hoppy. Aroma (based on my wife’s observation) is reminisant of cured tobacco. I like it because it seems to be complex on initial tasting. Worth a try.

I’m not a big amber drinker anyway, but this didn’t impress me nearly as much as other Lost Coast beers have. Their Indica is really solid, but this was just a pretty standard amber. Malty, sweet, and uneventful.

Pours bright and clear amber-copper color with a nice foamy off white head that leaves some lace in the glass, malty caramel aroma, sweet malty nutty flavors, medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel. It does finish with a nice and clean dryness, a very tasty amber ale.

Poured a nice red amber with a smallish head and lacing. Nice light aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is great, light hops,malt and citrus flavors make this a very easy drinking and refreshing beer.

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.
