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

12oz. bottle: This is a little interesting. The beer pours a somewhat hazy amber color. Mine didnít have too much head to it. The aroma is quite nice. It is a bit spicy, malty and citrusy, nicely balanced between the three. The taste is quite good also. There is a decent caramel maltiness to it, with a but of a hop bite also. Somewhat spicy taste also. This is well done and easy to drink. Thanks, Jay!

The hoppiness in this beer is more in the nose than the bitterness. Otherwise, the hops lened more of a spiciness and woody character instead of plain old bitterness. Most likely dry-hopped extensively.

Copper pour, nice lacing on the glass. Delicious aroma of citrus and spice; "aggressive" hoppiness (as the brewer says) could be better balanced with stronger malty undertones -- as a result, it has a somewhat surprising lightness to it. Hop bitterness and spiciness linger long after the glass is empty. Would make a good session beer. I like this quite well and will look for it again.

This is a wonderful smelling beer. Great aroma, just makes you want to taste it. Flavor is fairly good. Not as long lasting of flavor as I like, but a really nice beer

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Bottle. Great fresh hop aroma. Taste is more true to an amber than the label of "aggressive hopping" might suggest. Lots of toasted malt to go along with the hops and a very sweet finish, almost sugary. Tea and orange flavors.

Hoppy aroma and hoppy flavor. Amber color to body and off white head that diminishes to a thin layer over top of beer. Lacing is great on the glass. Just glad someone didnít prohibit me from getting one of these.

Amber gold, next to no head. Light sweet herbal nose. Herbal lemony flavor, toasted malt. Bitterness at the back of the tounge. Slight chocolate in the mostly herbal toasty finish.

Muckrakerr (33) - Muskegon, Michigan, USA - APR 21, 2005
Smells of spruce, pours red and frothy. Medium bitterness, a delight for a hophead like me. A fullbodied amber with lively carbonation and a long finish. A truly great ale.

jsquire (3720) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2005
Muddy amber color out of the bottle with a huge, rocky light beige head that left chunks of foam on the sides of the glass. The nose smells of sweet grains. Caramel sweetness from an abundance of malts, finishing with an almost vegetable green-ness. Decent beer that I bet would be better served with food.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Deep golden in color with a slight haze and a small white head. Aroma of toasted malt, earthy hops and oranges. Flavor is of bready malt, moderately bitter, with a mild sawdust character and botanical bitterness.
