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.

Brown - call it amber if you want - no aroma to speak of, colaish carbonation flavors of grain, ginger and then a citrusy dry finish.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2003 Best I have had from Lost Coast thus far. Odd, malty, fruity aroma with a slight underlying hoppiness to it. Light copper color appearance - slight head with a little bit of lacing. Flavor - first impression was of mint, believe it or not - Made its way to a nice mellow fruitiness. Overall, a very good amber ale - probably my highest rating of one so far.

An interesting beer. Good caramel and quality malt aroma. Fun Picasso-esque cat label. Ding for the screwoff. Lightly sweet, a little acidic, nutty. Better as it warms. Sweet and a little tannic in the finish. One of the better ambers that I've had recently.

Alas, there had to be at least one offering from Lost Coast that wasn't something special. Amber ales tend to have a tad more personality than Pales, and the Lost Coast pale was interesting enough so I though this one would be equally if not more interesting, but the Aley Cat was all in all "FatTire-esque." Caramelly, a bit grainy, but straight as an arrow, totally predictable, like the kids D.A.R.E. actually succeeded in affecting.

Toasty malt aroma with a moderate tan head and deep ruby color. The sample tasted had the paper flavor of oxidation but the base beer was smooth with pleasant caramel notes and supporting hop bitterness for a very complex, drinkable beer.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2003
A cloudy brownish-orange color. An off white almost yellow tinged frothy head that quickly diminished. The aroma is of citrus and also Elmers glue...a hint of hops. The flavor is a little hoppy with an orange citrus flavor. Not a whole lot of carbonation and a little thin.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2003
Cloudy amber color with a small creamy beige head. Smell hops and carmel, wet-dog. Has almost a seedy taste, like pumpkin seeds.

Good aroma, looks great, tastes great, and has a nice little kick at the end. All around great beer.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 27, 2003
Pours a clear amber color with a lingering off-white head. It has a nice, floral hop aroma with tons of citrus and pine notes. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is malty sweet up front, with hints of caramel. The finish is slightly hoppy, but well balanced by the malts. This is a very smooth and balanced beer. One of the better and bolder amber ales I have had.

Medium amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malty with a touch of caramel sweetness. A medium bodied amber ale. The roasted malts are mild and slightly sweet. Hops are citrusy. Nice balance. Mild flavors, chocolate, caramel, apples and pineapple. Nice, but it finishes a little too sweet for an amber. Mouthfeel is full and round, Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
