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

Failry average, had this one with my good friend Edward (brooklynboy) a while ago and am just now getting around to putting it in. For an amber ale its pretty good, amber colour with a medium head. Nose is somewhat malty and the taste is more coppery than anything else. Not bad.

poured a light amber with a small dissapearing head. Fruity hoppy smell with a faint of malts. Very hoppy taste for an amber.. Like an IPA.. good beer..

Cloudy amber with a small white head. Very hoppy scent, consisting of grapefruit and peachlike aromas. Flavor is more of a pale ale than an amber... Grapefruit and other citrus, and finishes very fresh-orangelike. Very tasty!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2005
Pours a dark mahogany/copper with a tall off-white head. Some sweet malts, but mostly citrus hops in the aroma. Taste starts smooth, a bit earthy and dirty on the malts, medium caramel flavors, maybe some mild honey, and finishes with a medium hop finish. Its a good ale, i wish the hops were tamed a bit cause I like the malts in this one.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 (12 oz bottle: Whole Foods in San Diego/Hillcrest, CA) I donít know what to make of this beer. Itís very flavorful, no question about that, and itís quite malty and moderately hoppy, but thereís something odd and funky about the flavor thatís actually a little unpleasant, I canít put my finger on it. Itís bready and lightly roasty, balanced by a moderately bitter hops. Mild tea character. Fairly hoppy nose, but again, thereís something slightly unpleasant that I canít identify. Amber in color and slightly hazy. Average size to the head, off-white in color, but maintaining a thin layer for the duration of the tasting. I want to try another bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2006 Wonderful strong pale ale. Itís been a favorite for years. It started showing up in bottles in the SF Bay Area in 2000 and has been increasing in availability ever since. Tastes to me like lots of tasty Cascase hops added late in the boil and again dry hopped in the secondary conditioning phase. Nice crystal-malt sweetness that blends excellently with the hop flavors. Highly recommended. I could have sworn this beer tasted even better about 2-3 years ago, but itís still very good.
