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.

Nice aroma. Caramel flavor and hop aroma. Must be something similar to cascade, it has a citrous, cream and pine flavor. Good malt balance. Like a pale ale, but in the US there is a fine line between a good amber and a pale ale--probably because of the hops that are used. The only thing I don’t like is that the initial good malt and hop flavors set me up for a great finish, and I didn’t get it. No real finish at all. Otherwise, a very good beer.

Okay, this beer has too many hops for an amber ale. Being brewed in Cali where it seems brewers throw extra hops in everything beer they make. This was one ’alleycat’ I’d actually let in to my home again.

Hoppy for an amber ale, this brew’s got an astringent bitterness that I could live without. Lost Coast has some great stuff and some not so great. Why the massive bottle, I wonder?

This should be called Alleycat Pale Ale. Very hoppy amber, low maltiness. Golden color, no amber tones. This is a good PALE ALE for a hip little brewery.

Very little aroma. The flavor was a nice sweet/sour apple with a malty sweetness. I was not real impressed with this. It seemed a little too tame.

Mmm...nice sweet, flowery aroma. Slightly cloudy copper color. Malty caramel flavor. Gets hoppier with warmth. Very enjoyable beer.
