3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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!

had this one the other night after the idica...hard to be good after that one ruins your hoppy palate. go back to the malt table and this is what you got. still could taste hops but obviously much more subdued. crisp piney flavors with a medium bodied malt toffee flavor as the back bone. dont be afraid of the alley cat he wont scratch.
