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

(bottle) One of my new favorites. It's really nice to grab a beer you haven't heard about, had it and loved it. This was a nicely hopped beer but without the annoying aftertaste that hurts some beers imo.

Poured from the 12oz bottle. Color is darker than your average amber. Aroma hints to this aggressively hopEd amber. I usually donít like ambers as much for their lack if hops, but this one changed that for me. Flavor is very well balanced malty and bitter. Overall a fantastic beer!

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 Jackís in the amber style.

nice big beer. great mixof various flavors that one normally associates with different beer dstyles. it has the malty strenghth of a barleywine, the whisky -like finish of an irish red and the smoothness of an amber.
