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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Pours an amber color with light lacing. Lightly hopped and balanced amber. Nothing particular comes to mind. I didn't mean to buy this one actually, I meant to get the stout.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Pours amber with a decent head and nice lacing. Aroma is medium hops. Flavor is quite hoppy and fresh tasting. Good malt balance. Body is medium and almost creamy. Pretty good amber.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Sweet smelling ale with very mild hints of hops and fruit. Nice red amber color with lots of carbonation. Flavor is very mild. Palate was not very complex but very refreshing. A easy drinking beer.

fiulijn (17458) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2003
Red amber color. Dry but nice hop aroma; lemony. Reasonable malty, nutty body; caramel; some sweetness. Bitter enough; caramel and hop finish (a bit simple).

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Pours clear amber with small head. Nice caramel malt aroma. Full bodied with a slightly sweet malt start with a surprising hop bitterness. Nice aftertaste. More hops than most Ambers. Seems like a APA (with a darker malt flavor) or an English bitter. Very nice beer. Some off flavors (bad melon) developed as it warmed. Drink it cold, drink it fast.

This beer is truly an enigma. It looks and smells beautiful. Rich amber color, fluffy head with lots of lacing, tiny bubbles lend itself to a nice creamy mouthfeel. The flavor, however, disappoints. A lot of caramel, yes. Decent hoppy malt combo, but then it just disappears, man. You're left with a slightly sour malt aftertaste wondering what just happened. Disappointing considering the Indica is so top shelf.

Waponi (3) - USA - OCT 31, 2003 does not count
This was a suprisingly good amber from a brewer who I hadn't tried before. There is a light frothy taste of the caramel and roasted hops that is present with every swig and makes for a great "mouth-feel". With all the flavor in the swig it's a little dissapointing that the aftertaste and aroma is so light, especially compared to some of the brewers other stock such as the Indica. A touch more body would be required to make this a favorite beer but it definitely ranks highly as a unique amber.

papajohn (1249) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Rich amber color with a medium light tan head. Aroma is light and sweet (apricot). Flavor starts off honey sweet with a hint of apricot and finishes with a light hop bite. After taste is slightly dry with a hint of green apple.

I was very impressed with this amber. Most are not hoppy enough for my palate. This Amber was not going to fall under that catagory. Extremley well balanced beer with a strong mouth-feel. Well done lost coast.

Nice honey color wiith a small off-white head; pleasantly sweet with hints of fruit and honey and a nice bitterness in the finish - I agree with Gromit - very complex taste for this style
