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

Good flavor. Not much nose. A little astringent aftertaste, but might be due to bar lines. Overall I would drink again.

Vintage: 2014 Appearance: Rich, red amber; tan, bubbly head; zero lace; low visible carbonation Smell: Caramel; Molases; Dates; Diacetyl Taste: Cola; Citrus Hops; kinda like a cheap soda… like Shasta. Mouth-feel: Medium Carbonation; Thin body; sticky, sugary Overall: Not good at all. Really disappointed in this one, because I have respect for Speakeasy and generally love their beers. Too bad.

12 oz bottle pours dark red with a off-white head. Bottle from 11/20/13. Dammit. Earthy and caramel. Bland, papery flavor. Gotta get some freshies from these guys.

Nice amber color but otherwise underwhelming. A bit bready, a bit soapy. A fairly generic amber without a lot of subtlety. Soapiness definitely hangs around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok beer a bit to sweet very little hop character. Maltiness is ok for the style. Was lloking for more hop character from the description.

jerohen (1975) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2014
On draft at Jacob’s Pickles, NYC. Clear amber colored, medium head. Hoppy nose, malts, caramel, some fruit. Pretty sweet flavor, caramel, malts, some bitterness in finish. Despite the hops it felt too sweet for me.

Brenhophead (531) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
330mL bottle. Pours deep clear amber with and a big creamy off white head. A bready/biscuit like aroma with a hint of toffee and a nice toffee/grapefruit flavour.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Pine notes and a caramel backbone. Clear amber with a bubbly brown head. Lots of toffee with a resinous hoppy bitterness. Finish is very dry and bitter. The finish is what prevents this beer from being awesome.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - FEB 12, 2014
Bottled. New Zealand holiday 2011-12. Old notes. Aroma has caramel and citrus. Hazy, orange-brown coloured beer with an off-white head. The taste is sweetish, has caramel, citrus and is slightly spicy. Moderate bitter finish.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Deep, clear ruby red with a solid tan head and moderate lace. Intensely hoppy aroma barely allows the caramel malt, bold as it is, to come through. Complex flavor profile features caramel, toast and biscuit supporting big hop bitterness, alcohol, pears, raisin, pine and grapefruit. Full body, creamy and sticky mouthfeel, modest carbonation and a mostly bitter finish.
