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

Rated 3/31/13. 22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a dark reddish-brown color. The head is a two finger heavy cream shade. Retention starts off quickly, then seems to slow down as the bubbles in the head get smaller. Attractive lacing, too. S: This has a LOT of caramel malt in it, with a slight candied tone thrown in there as well. But the more I whiff it, the more a grassy, lemony hop character comes through. Not bad. T: Initially, this opens up very caramel-forward. Underlying all the caramel are hints of chocolate, and it finishes with some light Centennial hopping. The flavors here balance out too well - they seem to cancel out the interesting qualities they could have otherwise brought to the table. In other words, a typical amber ale. M: There’s too much sweetness on the palate, and it’s too thickly textured. The lack of flavor and unctuous palate feel - combined with the slightly-too-strong carbonation - makes this one really difficult to drink. O: This is the first offering from Speakeasy I’ve had, and I’m not impressed. It’s the poor drinkability combined with the dreadfully boring nature that kills it for me. Others will like this, I don’t - like I said before, a typical amber ale. It does improve once it warms up, at least.

Strykzone (6211) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2016
12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. This pours a hazy medium brown. Kind of effervescent. A beige head is thick, rich, and creamy. Aroma is earthy, fruity hops, and spicy. That is pretty much the flavor. Rich malts and the feel is almost pulpy fruit. Maybe the best Amber I have had. Just nice and cool stuff going on.
