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

Lipton Lemon sweet tea flavor combined with a hoppy amber colored treat. I really really like this Amber!!! Matter of facts its the best I’ve had to date. Untouchable was a very good APA but Prohibition is awesome!!! Definitely a beer I will want to accumulate.

On tap at AT&T park in San Francisco. Excellent beer to sip on while watching the Dodgers smack on the Giants on their home turf. Pours a deep amber color and has a very malty flavor to it with a nice kick of hops afterwards. Good brew!

Bottle: Pours a very dark amber with a small head (at least how I poured it). Slightly bitter aroma and flavor. Nice palate for an amber. Another nice beer from the folks at Speakeasy.

Big, big beer. Takes the normally passive amber ale style to a whole new level. The caramel flavors have a burnt, smokey character that is unique and surprisingly addictive. The hops kick in before the malt gets at all cloying, and balance it all out. At first I thought this beer was nothing to their Big Daddy IPA, but this one is starting to REALLY grow on me. Second only to Mac and Jack’s in the amber style.

Light amber body, very little head. Smells like a lite lemon beer. Very light lemon hinted flavor that almost tastes watered down. Not too hoppy. A fairly good beer, but nothing special. The label said something about caramel flavors. I didn't notice them at first, but i did after i thought about it on the next sip.

Tasted from a bottle. Pours a unique aroma, beautiful dark amber color, and a large frothy head. I agree with the "caramel maltiness" description. An unusual tasting beer

Bottle. I never really drink too many amber ales, but had to try this because of the label and name. It was quite a nice brew. A lot more toffee and caramel taste than I am used to ambers, with nice slick toasty mouth feel. It also had quite a bit of hopping too, a really unique amber.

Clear amber with nice head. Hoppy aroma of malt, caramel, citrus and spices. Flavour is sweet in beginnig with a bitter finish.

Orange color with not much head. Really strong hop scent. Hmm...I taste hops, and some hops, and let me see...oh yeah, hops! In other words, I think this beer is a wee bit unbalanced. Is a little bit sweeter than I"d expected. Malts start crawling in at the end, but too little, too late in my opinion.

Sweet nutty, caramellike hoppyness and malts. Bittersweet :) nice amver colour and a good slifhtly off-white head. Bsharp on thw tongue and flavours of caramel, vanilla and rasins with a good kick of earthy hops. A bit dry aftertaste with a great balance between sweet and bitter. Really good!
