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

Gorgeous dark amber beer with big rocky head that stacys on like a tan poof of whipped cream. Nice fruity/hoppy nose. The flavor is more of a smoky caramel than I expected after the aroma ... with a light citric finish. A different combo than ordinary. Nice combo of heavy and hoppy.

This beer poured a golden orange w/ yellow highlights. Ok head and lacing. It had a pine and grapefruit nose and mouth, but the mouth had a hint of brown sugar sweetness. The beer was really tangy and aggressive w/ good effervescence.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Sunset orange. Again I am getting a touch of honey in the aroma, just like I did with their India Pale Ale, along with a touch of caramel covered red apples, toffee and a huge resinous hop scent. Watery texture and very thin in body. Notes of caramel, toffee, bright fruits and west coast hops. Overall, just very bland.

hopdog (9018) - 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 (3156) - 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 (1500) - 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.
