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

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 (12958) - 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 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.

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.

Clear Amber colour with thick off white head. Mild hop nose. Mild citric hop taste with mild malt finish.

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 (2388) - 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.

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.

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.
