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.

BBB63 (6368) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Dark amber hue than pours to a large off-white creamy head and excellent lacing. Nose of toasted malts, apple, grapes, cotton candy, and wood. Sticky malty taste and feel initially with a slightly acidic/sour finish. Not much hops in this one. A very average brew, standard for this style. Malty and coy. Great looks is it's best quality.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2003
Hazy brownish amber with moderate off-white head. Aroma is lightly caramelly with cidery highlights. Flavor is quite light, balanced between the caramel malts and slightly spicy hop profile. Although balance is adequate, the flavors are muted, leaving one wanting for a bit more. Body is similarly on the light side. Very drinkable, and probably many who like a light-countenanced ale will like this; this was a little too tame all-around for my satisfaction.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Not very exciting, kind of bland in my opinion. Clear amber with nice head but poor retention. Aroma is light, cascade and sweet malt but Mbodied with very slight if any bitterness. Flavor is pretty basic and similar to a Sam Adams Ale or a Petes Wicked Ale. I liked their Brown Ale much better and their Stout is also pretty decent.

Suttree (5379) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Brown - call it amber if you want - no aroma to speak of, colaish carbonation flavors of grain, ginger and then a citrusy dry finish.

PorterPounder (5952) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2003
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.

Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - MAY 21, 2003
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.
