We report on a new outburst of the WZ Sge-type dwarf nova AL Comae Berenices in unfiltered CCD images with the 0.45-m ROTSE-IIIb telescope at McDonald Observatory, Texas. The transient, located at RA: 12:32:25.84 Dec: +14:20:42.5 (J2000.0; uncertainty ~ 1"), was observed at mag 13.20 on Dec. 12.47 UT, at mag 13.39 on Dec. 14.46 UT, and at mag 13.51 on Dec. 16.44 UT. The limiting mag prior to detection was 15.5.
