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

ChiGuy68 (426) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
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

It’s ok. Bitter pale ale without any much over the top hops. Not enough aroma for good balance

loubar (88) - Los Gatos, California, USA - NOV 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Aroma of citrusy hops, yeast and nutty malt. Taste is rich and crisp. Caramel malt, tangerine hops and red berries nicely balanced on the pallet. Starts sweet. Then finish is long, dry and moderately bitter. Good carbonation. A very tasty and solid amber.

Prufrockstar (1146) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle from wittales. Clear amber pour, offwhite head, spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel mostly - some cherry, some light pine hops, some jolly rancher candy, but mostly amber caramel. Moderately sweet, light bitterness. Medium body, slick texture. Overall: solid amber.

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2014
@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût. Bière ambrée foncée avec une mousse blanche. Une drôle d’odeur de savon se dégage de cette bière. Des effluves de caramel sont aussi présentes. La bouche est malheureusement dans le même registre avec du savon au caramel.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

umich03jm (2179) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle. Copper pour with a small foamy head that fades to a thin film and a nice ring around the glass. Aromas are nuts, herbs, apple sauce, citrus, flowers, and biscuits. Tastes pretty malty at first with a moderately bitter finish. Caramel apples, citrus, nuts and biscuits stand out the most. I expected it to be a little hoppier. Medium body. A little creamy. Solid amber ale.

rubbishystuff (1880) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Thanks to iNBe. Almost red rather than amber in color. Fresh hops with a mellow malt to balance. Really quite a good all around beer. Serving: Bottle
