My second choice was to tryout Lost Coast’s Alleycat Amber. I have spotted it on the rare occasion in Alberta, but few and far between. So, I thought to myself, when better to give this a try then right from the brewery.

This Alleycat pours out a reddish bronze color with a finger of off white head. The head seems quite thick with decent retention and leaves some lacing along the edges of the glass. The aroma wafts with a roasted caramel malt hint with a very subtle hop undertone. The flavoring is extremely well-balanced in my opinion. Initially the caramel malts dominate the flavors but the subtle bitter and citrus hops soon swoop in to balance out the flavors. The carbonation was most certainly noticeable in the beer, but it wasn’t as prominent as I would have thought with the head that came during the pouring.
