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

argo0 (11555) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Clear amber body with a quickly dissipating medium tan head. Aroma is sweet, strong grapefruit, floral, caramel. Taste is medium sweet grapefruit, supplemented by light caramel and floral notes. Medium body. More aggressive than "amber ale" suggests, which in this case is a good thing.

bhensonb (11130) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
NIce aroma of citrusy hop with underlying malt. Beautiful copper/amber color with a light tan head. Starts with wonderful hops, mostly citrusy, followed by a thrust of malt, ending with very nice bitterness, possibly with some pine coming past the citrus. It’s all in the perception. There’s some sort of tobacco type spice? in the finish? Maybe it’s a bit of herbal note. There’s something there. Really very good.

Leighton (11122) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Certainly does strike a superb balance between malts and hops. Pours a dark, rich amber hue with a mild, off-white head. Nose is citrus hops and slight, roasted malts. Flavor has nice, earthy hop bitterness and burnt malt character. A few notes of caramel and coffee. Medium bitterness and sweetness. Smooth, rich body. Finish is tasty with warm, roasty malt aftertaste. Flavor could be a bit more robust but overall this is a great beer.

Tmoney99 (10712) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Poured deep copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Complex citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.
