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

Pours a nice amber color with an off-white head. Hops, citrus, and malt hit the nose. Nice hoppy taste, with not too much bite. Smooth, but not much other flavor than the hops. Still, quite refreshing.

Amber colored with a tan head. Floral hops abound in this beer, light caramel to offset the hoppiness. light to medium bodied with a fairly dry finish. Pretty tasty.

An attractive ale pouring a dark copper color with a very well retained beige colored head. Aroma is mostly hoppy that being the citric , grapefruity variety there is a malt presence in the background. Flavor is up front hoppy with some nice grapefruit juice notes, but not over the top. Nice earthy caramel malty flavor also. This really is a pale ale to my taste buds anyway. Way too much hoppiness to be in the amber category. Good ale.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2005
Reddish amber with a medium off-white head. Clean fruity aroma with some hops and plenty of malt. Very malty flavor but balanced pretty well with enough hops to get your attention without dominating it. A little tart fruity note - apricot? - snuck in there as well. Crisp finish. I didn’t expect much of this beer and I was mildly surprised when it was finished. Worth a few fridge door shelf spots.

Aroma is very similar to their "Untouchable Ale". Sweet candy sugars with a citrusy nose and some piney notes in there as well. A tad of earthiness. Nice transparent amber hue with a fluffy manilla folder head. Metallic and quite yeasty to start. Lots of hops up front with a mild to moderate amount of maltiness. The start just has this funky yeasty/rubbery taste that just makes the rest seem off and unpleasant. I’ll take the Untouchable any day.

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!
