Bottle. Aroma of caramel and grapefruit and tar. Rich amber beer with a big off-white head. Easy to drink. Caramel flavors with a slightly light body. Nice pale ale. Well balanced.

Iím not a fan of filtered/non bottle conditioned beers. They arenít lying about the hops in here. Ok amber. I accidentally bought this instead of their APA. Whoops...

I like this beer better than the speakeasy IPA. It has a bit more balance and character too it. Itís still very hoppy, but has a little bit more sweetness and nutty flavor to balance the dry hops. Not bad.

Not bad. Murky copper body with a beige frothy head. Aroma was citrus, caramel, nutty, malty. Good mouthfeel. Creamy and rich. Flavor was acidic, malty, pleasant. Good drink.

Lipton Lemon sweet tea flavor combined with a hoppy amber colored treat. I really really like this Amber!!! Matter of facts its the best Iíve had to date. Untouchable was a very good APA but Prohibition is awesome!!! Definitely a beer I will want to accumulate.

Pours a deep copper color that is topped by an off white head. It has a pungent citrusy aroma that is backed by toasted malt notes. Slightly sweet up front with a dry finish that leads to a sense of toasted biscuit lingering on my tongue. These Speakeasy beers are a lot more malty than I remember them being. There is a nice hoppiness here, it is just not as dominant as I would like it to be, or as I remember it being. I get notes of orange, flowery herbal nectar, a sharp tongue tingling bitterness, and a certain sweetness towards the end that tends to tie the maltiness and the hops together. Just a wee bit disappointing in the end, ah such is my memory of this beer.

I had no idea what I was getting into when I got this -- mainly because my friend drank my last SNPA so he gave me one of these instead. A good beer. Good amber color with a decent head. More hops than a lot of ambers.

Big fruity, hoppy aroma. Light golden-reddish color. Flavor is well balanced with hops, pine and caramel notes. Hops may be a little overbearing for some but it works well here. A very appealing malt character gives this beer an eternal finish. This one goes great with chinese food by the way.

Tap@Edinborough Castle, San Fransisco. Considering i felt like crap after a mamoth day drinking with the San Fran Krew, this wasnít too bad. pretty relaxed and soft. Nice hop aromatics, pine, lychee, not intense at all, well balanced.
