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

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2005
Dark orange pour, bubble white head. Orange citrus hop aroma. Nice dent bitter taste - more than the aroma would suggest. Looks watery but certainly isn’t - it does have a thin mouthfeel though. I found it to be a good session brew the best thing that has happened to "amber" ales in quite some time. My 2nd enjoyable brew from these guys.

Golden amber color. Nice big head that laces well. More malt than hops on the flavor but the nose was a nice bitter hop. Citrusy, bready, citrus rind, floral notes. I enjoyed it.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Transparent amber in color. Big fluffy white head. Strong hop aroma. Medium hop body. Very mild malt backbone. Hops stay through from fore through the middle and into the fatertaste. Nicely done.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Overall, this is a pretty mild brew. Aroma is subdued, with very faint hops. Head is fairly large, with a nice lace left on the glass. The best quality is that it’s very well balanced. The only problem with that is that they advertise it as "a boldly hopped amber ale" Not so much.

ElGaucho (2340) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2005
Aroma initially has some similarities to wet cardboard, but hops come through on second and third whiff. Clear amber body with lots of streaming carbonation. Creamy, off-white head. Excellent lace and lasting head. Piney dry hop profile with some chalk. Needs some more sweetness. Somewhat unbalanced in favor of bitter. A little thin. Lacks in malty sweetness. Nice session quality as it warms; the hops subdue.

CamdenD (1135) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 3, 2005
Wish more amber ales were like this one and not just combine ales. Full round taste full of hops and character. Almost more like a dark pale ale. Nice stuff.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Pours a nice clear amber color with a normal amount of white head. Aroma is very hoppy, citrucy, and floral, more like a pale ale than an amber. Flavor is a creamy balance of sweet malts and citrusy hops that I found to be very very enjoyable. I wish I had another.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Light hazelnut color, creamy greenish off-white head, lots of lacing. Nose is nicely hopped with citrusy, earthly characteristics. Also a bit malty. Very efficient lure as MartinT would put it. The flavor is creamy, bal;anced with a medium body and mouthfeel. Moderate bitterness in the tail and a nice rounded flavor. Clean.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Pretty nice amber ale overall, but obviously nothing extraordinary. Pours a light amber with a slight head that leaves a lasting film. Aroma is citrusy and piney with a good medium malt presence. Flavor is moderately malty with some crystal malts and hoppy with notes of citrus, pine and some orangy flavors. Has more of an earthy dry bitterness in the end which seems a bit harsh.
