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

I found this beer to be quite excellent. Reminiscent of Arrogant Bastard Ale. Rich caramel malt flavor with a nice drying sensation from the hops. Well balanced and complex.

Dark amber, decent head, caramel and citrus aroma, flavor bitter, not much malt, kinda bland in my opinion.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Reddish amber color, clear body. Avg size creamy white head that leaves a soapy residue and finally a creamy surface. Excellent and pleasant sweet (brown sugar, caramel) citrusy and grassy hops. Light yet decent grassy hop flavor with some low-lying sweetness. Has an almost porter-like burnt/lactic acid finish.

Bold and hoppy, you know this is west coast as soon as it hits your nose. Aroma is resiny and floral as is the flavor. Nice caramel character prevents the hops from running rampant. Sharp bitter finish. A fine ale.

Fruity, floral nose. Hoppy, light carmel flavors. Some toast and bread. Nice lace along the glass. A bit watery but still a nice beer.

Rastacouere (6131) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2004
More than decent effort at a less than decent style. Copper body, 1 cm lasting head. Very nutty flavor, somewhat grapefruity too. Maple-like maltiness serves as a base for the hops. Finish is sadly short. Firm medium body, crystal malt boosted I believe. Very drinkable if not thought inspiring.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 9, 2004
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.

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