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

Fruity, floral nose. Hoppy, light carmel flavors. Some toast and bread. Nice lace along the glass. A bit watery but still a nice beer.

Aroma of sweet and floral hops with a subdued almost bland malt. Flavor is floral and grainy. Not for me

Speakeasy Prohibition Ale 12 oz bottle Recent bottling, medium pour in an English pint glass. Poured orange red with a small beige frothy mostly diminishing head with traces of lacing. Smelt of strong caramel with light citrus. Taste was upfront moderate sweet caramel with light roasted and nutty highlights and light grassy bitter hops followed by a moderate citrusy hop kick on a light dry bready malt with a long bitter finish. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, oily, lively carbonated wit hlight astringency. Overall, an amber that flows nicely from rich caramel maltiness to bold citrusy hopiness. Finish is way too balanced towards hops though.

on tap at "Fly Bar" in San Francisco, CA. tastes a bit like a brown ale or Brooklyn Ale. pours a light watered-down ruddy-brown. little to no head. little carbonation. smells of citrus and carmel. tastes of pine hops, caramel malts, clementine (orange). subtle bitterness/hops throughout that kicks at the finish. full mouth-feel. solid and good.

Copper red, slightly hazy. Coarse head leaving nice lace. Sweet, honey, floral aroma. Good malt backbone, well bittered with a hoppy finish. A little iced tea and a little vegetables. Oily mouthfeel and sits a bit heavy in the stomach. Recommended.

Poured amber with a creamy head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Flavor has sweet malt, but mostly grapefruit hops, a little pine. Very nice.

popkow (300) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Nice amber color with a small tan head. Hops aroma but does not overwhelm. Hops are balance with a very mellow malt that has a nice sweet taste of sugar. The body is medium the texture thin and a slightly bitter finish. Enjoyed this beer because of the malt.
