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

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Poured a darker and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized head. Somewhat hoppy and citric. Sweet.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Golden amber in color with a little bit of cloudiness to it. Smells almost exclusively of sweet malt (I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing for you; for me - good). Found it not as well-hopped as advertised, perhaps overwhelmed by the malt? Slightly bitter as well. Very nice ale.

SpringsLicker (3120) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 20, 2004
Hazy amber color under a creamy off white head. Malt and hops are well balanced in the aroma. Goes over the tongue with a nice bitterness that follows the malt all the way to the end. Decent Amber Ale.

igneous1 (1492) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - NOV 18, 2004
clear deep copper, thick foamy off-white head. aroma is filled with citrus hops, but with an underlying maltiness. this is one of the few beers where the commercial description fits it perfectly.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Lovely caramel & citrus aroma. Interesting mouthfeel that almost over-rides the flavors - tongue coating, dry, maybe over-carbonated. Still very enjoyable. There’s a lot of "there" there to explore.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Pours a bright and deep reddish amber color, medium off-white head and lacing. Earthy aroma, some plums, difficult to place. Medium body, a mix a caramel and dark bread. Spicy, in a hops kinda way but also like earl gray tea (bergamot). I liked the earthiness here and the lingering bitterness. Agressive in a refined way.

nchoward (24) - Iowa, USA - OCT 30, 2004
A brown/amber ale that at first noses as being quite balanced with American style malt and hops. Any caramel sweetness that there is is covered by the lemony hops quickly. This is not a hoppy ale or pale ale by any means, however, the scales tip to the hops. Great alone around 55-60 degrees or Ice Cold for a great football beer. Slightly complex and a great addition to the ale market.

Odeed (1775) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 21, 2004

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Very nice hoppy aroma, earthy & malty. Nice amber body, with a well lasting 1/4 inch off white head. Pretty tasty, well hopped for an amber, but maintains a good flavor. Sweetness comes through in the end. Good session beer.
