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

I like these Speakeasy bottles with the eyeballs at the top. This was a pretty good amber ale, reminded me somewhat of combination of Rogue’s American Amber and their Red. Poured deep amber / copper in color with a substantial initial head that subsided but laced well. The aroma was of strong hops and caramel, and the flavor followed suit. A strong showing of malt and hops in this one, but balanced. If noble hops were used, I’d dig this, but I’d just go for an Altbier in that case.

Bottle. Pours golden amber with very little white head. Nice hops aroma. Finishes a bit watery.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2007 From the bottle.

Pours a lovely tawny red-brown with a nice head. The aroma is strong on floral piney hops (quite strong for the style -- which is very nice.) The flavor melts an ample helping of toasty malt with a strong bitter and floral hop flavor that leads into a long and very dry finish.

This is a lovely beer, and it’s enough to make me reconsider my biases against amber ales. Upon a second visit, I’m equally as impressed. This one is a Mac-and-Jacks killer.

sayravai (4706) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2006
(Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with a small, tight head. Aromatic-nutty-hoppy aroma with some caramely malt. Bitter and quite hoppy, nutty and malty, slightly sour flavor with a bitter, but not very dry finish. Medium-bodied, slightly fizzy-carbonated palate. A nice one.

jrob21 (3333) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Bottle smuggled back from VA. Nice hops aroma at the beginning. Maltier than a pale ale but not malty enough for a full ale. Well balanced but a little thin. Green fruits in the taste and a bit of a sour finish.

Draft at Henry’s in Portland. Very rich brownish amber color, light off-white head that doesn’t hang around. Very fresh hops on the nose, and a little bit of caramel malt under them. The dominant note on the tongue is definitely the super-fresh, floral hops, though. Body’s a little thin, but balanced enough that the hop delivery mechanism is completely sound. One of the freshest, most plant-like, botanically-correct hop flavors I’ve had in a beer in a while.

12 oz bottle-pours a foamy to rocky tan head with cloudy copper color. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is caramel malt then medium hops. Dry and OK carbonation.

Bottled. Not bad, but was very grainy for my mouth. It also had a refreshing citrus flavor. Slight bitter finish.

Pours with a Reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick ehad with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a nice hoppy, piney note showing through. Medium bodied and smooth.
