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

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Citrusy, floral, earthy hop fragrance, in addition to some light caramel sweetness, toasty grain and nuttiness. Medium rosy amber color, lightly sedimented, with a lasting, creamy head and generous lacing. Malty up front, some genttly sweet caramel and honey, becoming substantially hoppy thereafter, citric, flowery, spicy, juicy and largely bitter. Medium bodied, smoothly effervescent mouthfeel. This might just as easily fall into the IPA category due to the hop level. Very drinkable and refreshing.

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Copper in colour with a super thin tan head. Strong hoppy aroma paired with a sense of rye and some balanced malt. Medium to Light-Bodied; Very minimal amount of taste, I was expecting a lot more. Definate hoppiness with that same rye character showing through. Balanced well with malt, the aftertaste barely shows any bitterness. Somewhat dry finish, but nothing overwhelming. Overall, I was actually disapointed with this, as I prefered the Big Daddy IPA to this one. I owe a big thank you to Jah_noth for this twelve ounce bottle in a local trade. Cheers Dan!

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with strong notes of yeast. The color is amber and it has a fine but disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with light yeast notes. All in all the flavor is boring. An average ale - nothing special.

Nice lacing around perimeter of glass. Great hop/malt balance. Floral flavors very prominient from beginning to end. Very enjoyable. I have been generally impressed with Speakeasy's brews.

Bottled. Reddish amber. Citrusy aroma with a touch of green vegetables. Clean hard mouthfeel, quite bitter. Too poor malt structure.

BBB63 (5750) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2003
On tap: Copper hue with nice off-white head and excellent lace. Big piney aroma with minor hints of buttered toast, orange zest and twangy yeast. Taste intially was very potent piney hops but a nice dose of caramel malts added a pleasent balance. Dry, bitter, and slightly astringent finish. The mouthfeel is smooth yet not boring. Damn, this is a Speakeasy brew I was hoping for. Highly recommended.

Flipbrewer (33) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 19, 2003
Man, the hop aroma hits you the moment you pop open the bottle! Poured with a light beige head that dissipated into a thin layer after a few minutes; some lacing. Nice clear deep gold-amber color. Spicy-citrusy hop aroma dominates with malt and caramel underneath. Bold hop flavor start to finish; malt sweetness appears soon after the start and dries out towards the finish. Slightly rough hop bitterness and vegetal character linger in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with creaminess from the gentle carbonation. At cooler temps the hop character is quite assertive and tends to dominate the malt character. Drink at 55F for a nicer balance.

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Orangey-copper coloured. Light head and strong lacing. Strong lasting hop aroma. Hoppy flavour with a light malt backing. Balanced but tilted in favour of the hops. Light citrus note. Long hop finish.
