COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prohibition Ale is a boldly hopped amber ale that strikes a perfect balance between caramel maltiness and its aggressive hopping.

Prufrockstar (1366) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from wittales. Clear amber pour, offwhite head, spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel mostly - some cherry, some light pine hops, some jolly rancher candy, but mostly amber caramel. Moderately sweet, light bitterness. Medium body, slick texture. Overall: solid amber.

@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût. Bière ambrée foncée avec une mousse blanche. Une drôle d’odeur de savon se dégage de cette bière. Des effluves de caramel sont aussi présentes. La bouche est malheureusement dans le même registre avec du savon au caramel.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

umich03jm (2504) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Copper pour with a small foamy head that fades to a thin film and a nice ring around the glass. Aromas are nuts, herbs, apple sauce, citrus, flowers, and biscuits. Tastes pretty malty at first with a moderately bitter finish. Caramel apples, citrus, nuts and biscuits stand out the most. I expected it to be a little hoppier. Medium body. A little creamy. Solid amber ale.

rubbishystuff (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 Thanks to iNBe. Almost red rather than amber in color. Fresh hops with a mellow malt to balance. Really quite a good all around beer. Serving: Bottle

tomer (2060) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2014
At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small stable bubbly head, aroma of fruit and jam with some malt in the back, dark biscuit flavour with with some jam and a hint of smoke and a quite strong herbal bitterness, a bit too sweet and heavy. Fair.

Bottle pour. Dark amber with tan head. Caramel and resin aroma. Thick creamy palate. Great taste with caramel, cereal, resin, and a light chocolate aftertaste.
