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.

Malty with a caramel like sweetness that leads to a bit of citrus and tartness towards the finish. Fairly light and clean.

Poured a clear copper color with a tall slightly cream beige head that dropped to about 1/2". The was a nice amount of carbonation bubbles rising up in the glass. There was a nice german lager aroma to the beer along with some roasted malt. The beer hada nice caramel malt sweetness followed by a mild bitterness.

Nice malt flavor up front, but too much bitterness in the end. Some spicyness comes through. No nose to speak of. Not a bad dinner or session beer.

355ml bottle. Great looking beer wih a great taste to match. Dark amber copper colour with lots of malt and caramel in both the flavour and the aroma. Very satisfying and leaves you wanting more.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 This is a decent amber along the lines of a milder, maltier APA. It pours a cloudy red orange w/ a scant but long lasting head and plenty of lace. A good balance of malt and hops here but w/ nothing that really stands out and shines. Iced-tea astringency and firm bitterness keep the finish crisp despite a slight sweetness. Pretty tasty overall and nicely drinkable, this isn’t a beer that will turn heads but I could see myself drinking it all night if I ran into on tap.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 At Fork. Easy going enough for someone who doesn’t want something too challenging but also enough complexity and hops to make it interesting. Good. Serving: Tap

Dark amber pour under a nice, medium tan head. No lacing. Good amount of malt sweetness with just a tiny little hop bite. Rather pleasant.

Received a few bottles for Christmas. Thanks Gayle! This is a hazy amber beer with a great lacing. The aroma has notes of hops and some caramel. The flavor is sweet at first with lots of floral hops on a few notes of caramel in the background, leading to a bitter finish. If you like hoppiness, this beer is for you. Very drinkable. Need to save some for CMB when he comes home in a few weeks.
