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

I really enjoyed this one. Hopefully the rest are this good. Pretty color, good head. Wonderfully balanced- in fact, I would say this would be a textbook case of "balance" between hop and malt.

very bitter and hoppy, with good initial taste but too strong hoppy aftertaste

Very hoppy. Goes very well with the right food. More bitter than my usual preference but is a very good beer overall. Not as much carbonation as most beers. Good amber.

Speakeasy is the darker side of amber with a mild carbonation producing a small but creamy white head. The aroma is pure cascade hops at first, what does that smell like you ask? Well, maybe fresh balsam and cedar boughs steeped with holly and a little bit of valencia orange peel. There's a small whiff of roasted malt that tries valiantly to find it's way past the hops, but it barely succeeds, just adding a slightly vegetal note. Flavor is summed up easily by just saying "west coast brown ale", all most to the point of tasting like a good traditional German alt beer but with definite American hops, which isn't bad but I usually don't think of something like this as a first choice. Clean, well made beer though....

Pours an amber color with thin tan head, and thin lacing. A lot of hoppiness and some spicy and floral tones. I would drink this again.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2003
balanced fruity aroma, clear amber with a nice uniform head, great medium body, caramel sweetness, lightly hopped and a nice piney finish

Clear dark burgundy. Floral hop aroma. Spiced cinnamon and peache flavor, with a cherry taste hidden beneath. Speakeasy has probably the most consistently-finest smelling beer I've tried.

A very good pale ale. very hoppy, a nice caramel and malt balance...amber color with a white foamy head.

dlclark (73) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2003
Nice pale ale, loads of hops and a hint of grapefruit. This is similar to Alpha King but not as flavorful. Unfortunately, Prohibiton runs $9.00 for six were Alpha King is $5.50. I probably won't buy it again because of price but it is a nice beer.

Golden yellow with a large beige frothy and rocky head. Smell malt, hops, and caramel. Taste bitter hops and malt.
