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

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.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2005
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 didn’t 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 (3691) - 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.

mjg74 (2720) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 28, 2005
Bottled. Pours a lovely reddish/gold color. Aroma is somewhat hoppy and sweet. A little bit of fruitiness as well. Bitter hoppy flavor right up front. Followed by a malty flavor. Nice balance of malts and hops.

asheft (2678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2005
Almost clear copper with a yellowy beige head that becomes a textured film and leaves good lacing. Amazing aroma of american hops: pine, orange, grapefruit, bitter apricot, blueberry. Not a whole lot of toffee in the nose, but it comes through more and more with each sip, offsetting very well the piney / citrusy hops flavou. Some coffee notes. The only flaw in this beer was that it was just a tiny bit astringent at the very end. Medium to full body and medium carbonation. Excellent.
