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

Dark amber in colour with somewhat low carbonation. Some nice hoppy aromas going on there, perhaps a mix of citrusy and woody (but not pine like) varieties. The flavor was far less malty than I had expected, with more leafy hop character coming through. The malt note that I detected was more of a slight roasted note. The body was a little thinner than expected too. Perhaps this bottle had a bit of a rough ride north? Anyway, Iím glad that the MLCC finally brought in something with some hop character for a change.

On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Excellent amber ale, one of my favorites from the festival. Sweet caramel like malty aroma with a hint of molasses. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Good underlying bitterness. Not your everyday amber.

Bottle: Lighter than your typical amber ale. It has a pleasant sweet smell like molasses cookies. There really was no lacing and showed an interesting yellowish-brown head. What I thought stood out most was a nice bitter aftertaste similar to an IPA. It was loaded with lots of carbonation and a general woody taste. Pretty good.

IndianaRed (3743) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear orange/amber with a nice off white head . Lacing is chunky and coarse. Sweet bread like aromas. Strong woody flavors and quite bitter. Quite thin feel. Cardboard aftertaste. Glad to have tried it.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Poured a slightly hazed amber color with a huge (too big) off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops on top with caramel maltiness underneath. Flavor is sweet with more citrus/grapefruit covering up most of the malt (this is not a bad thing) Finishes with a nice hop bitterness. Fizzy mouthfeel becomes a detractor from an other wise very nice beer. Other slight flaw is a touch of "metalic" taste.

Ratman197 (13084) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle poured a clear amber with an off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, carmel and a hint of citrus. Palate was a little on the thin side. Flavors of malt, and carmel with a mildly bitter finish. This is hardly what I would call boldly hopped!

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 isnít - 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.

waeltzy (53) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2005
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.
