In this 99th blog post, we are going to get into the second beer from Lost Coast Brewery from my Beer of the Month. The first one we did was their Great White Ale. You can read that post to get a little history on the brewery. Lost Coast Alleycat Amber Ale is part their everyday beers and now let us start pouring the beer into the glass.
Lost Coast Alleycat Amber Ale is a different pace for an American Amber Ale. When poured in the glass, it has a nice amber color without a head. There is really no smell to this amber ale. The taste has a spicy malty without any aftertaste. It is very drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.lostcoast.com):
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.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Full-flavored amber ale made with roasted caramel malt and spicy German and American hops.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I did not like this beer very much. The spices that are in the beer just threw me off when I was drinking it. However, I can see other people liking this beer, there is nothing wrong liking Lost Coast Alleycat Amber Ale. I have a hard time finding an American Amber Ale that I really like so I believe it is not the beer. It is just me. It is drinkable and will give the beer drinker a nice experience. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
