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

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Pours a dark golden with a thick puffy white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma has hints of crystal malt. Body is dry, somewhat stale and uninteresting. The hop flavors promised by the aroma are mild and boring. Goes down smooth, but nothing to write home about.

11/27/03. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, bought at Liquorama in Upland, CA 10/15/03. Pours lightly hazy, dark honey amber color. Good, mostly dense but somewhat rocky, cream-colored head that lingers quite awhile with mediocre lacing. Beer looks pretty thick and slick. Nose is of bright, fruity hops and malt, honey and some biting berry. Also doughy. Very nice and enticing. Initial taste is lightly effervescent and suprisingly thin-bodied. Nice crisp bitterness and almost floral quality, but it fades pretty quickly. Quite drying, and slightly musty and dusty. Finish goes kind of flat and is only moderately long except for a very slight lingering bitterness without much character to it. A disappointment of a finish after a promising beginning. Somewhat surprised to find it was an amber ale and not a pale, but I guess it shares characteristics of both (though it is distinctly amber in color). Easy drinking, but not all that exciting.

AlabastorJones (805) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Hoppy Aroma, nice amber color, vanilla head, this is a very highly hopped amber, malty crisp flavor, good bitter finish, nicely done.

Indra (2624) - 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 (4770) - 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 (29473) - 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.
