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

imdownthepub (10297) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2010
Bottled, pasteurised, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Red amber with white head. Good, smooth and fruity beer with quite a sweetish hoppy flavour. The body has a slightly thick caramel note, but with a soft, berry fruitiness, decent tongue coating, then a fruity light hop, not with the aggressiveness expected. Very pleasant.

Ratman197 (9830) - 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!

hopscotch (9163) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Good beer. The aroma is lightly malty and heavily floral. This clear amber ale has a medium sized, creamy head. Excellent lacing. Mostly diminishing. The flavor is very malty up front and fairly bitter on the backside. Fizzy. Medium bodied. Watery mouthfeel. Medium length, slightly bitter and a very very dry, crisp finish.

Amber pour. Light head. Hoppy and caramel aroma. Flavor is hoppy, caramel, biscuit, citrus. Good stuff.

adnielsen (9108) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a dark reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Caramel, bitter herbal hoppy, slightly aged aroma. A touch fruity, roasty caramel malty, nutty, earthy, light paper, light minty flavor. Tastes a little old, unfortunately.

Poured a darker and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized head. Somewhat hoppy and citric. Sweet.

maeib (8726) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2010
Bottled New Year’s Day evening session at home Bought at Bellingers Garage, Grove. My only new beer on NYD and it was the weakest of the evening in competition alongside Christoffel Bier, Greene King Strong Suffolk and Girardin Gueuze Black Label. It pours amber with a short-lived off white head. It has a nice fruity hoppy nose but the sweetness from the malts are definitely evident. Taste is quite sharp fruity bitterness. Again an over effect of sweetness from the caramalt. Ok but needs mellowing out.

On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Decent choice for cask as bitter and malts makes it a drinker.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a hazy copperish orange colorwith a thin creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Hoppy aroma with toffee and a fruity finish. Taste is bitter leafy citrus hops with notes of toffee, nuts, nougat, apple and peach. Medium bodied. Interesting and good.
