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

joet (2347) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - MAR 22, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Jupiter, Berkeley, tap. A nrilliant amber. The pick of the litter for today’s tastings. A very big beer with herbal and bushy aromas with perfume waking in the palate. A wide hoppy spectrum and a heady finish. Very nice.

Bright dark amber appearance. Citrusy nose, somewhat plastickey. Some fruit in there as well with just a touch of malt. Nicely bitter body, citrus and a little malt. Long finish.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Speakeasy is the darker side of amber with a mild carbonation producing a small but creamy white head. The aroma is pure cascade hops at first, what does that smell like you ask? Well, maybe fresh balsam and cedar boughs steeped with holly and a little bit of valencia orange peel. There's a small whiff of roasted malt that tries valiantly to find it's way past the hops, but it barely succeeds, just adding a slightly vegetal note. Flavor is summed up easily by just saying "west coast brown ale", all most to the point of tasting like a good traditional German alt beer but with definite American hops, which isn't bad but I usually don't think of something like this as a first choice. Clean, well made beer though....

Ungstrup (29989) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2003
The aroma is sweet and malty with strong notes of yeast. The color is amber and it has a fine but disappearing head. The flavor is sweet and malty with light yeast notes. All in all the flavor is boring. An average ale - nothing special.

cquiroga (371) - Tujunga, California, USA - NOV 29, 2003
11/27/03. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, bought at Liquorama in Upland, CA 10/15/03. Pours lightly hazy, dark honey amber color. Good, mostly dense but somewhat rocky, cream-colored head that lingers quite awhile with mediocre lacing. Beer looks pretty thick and slick. Nose is of bright, fruity hops and malt, honey and some biting berry. Also doughy. Very nice and enticing. Initial taste is lightly effervescent and suprisingly thin-bodied. Nice crisp bitterness and almost floral quality, but it fades pretty quickly. Quite drying, and slightly musty and dusty. Finish goes kind of flat and is only moderately long except for a very slight lingering bitterness without much character to it. A disappointment of a finish after a promising beginning. Somewhat surprised to find it was an amber ale and not a pale, but I guess it shares characteristics of both (though it is distinctly amber in color). Easy drinking, but not all that exciting.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 30, 2003
Pours a dark golden with a thick puffy white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma has hints of crystal malt. Body is dry, somewhat stale and uninteresting. The hop flavors promised by the aroma are mild and boring. Goes down smooth, but nothing to write home about.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2004
Red in color with a medium lasting off-white head. Grapefruit and fruit aroma. Bitter taste without much malt profile.

brewshthereen (316) - Oregon, USA - AUG 15, 2004
Fruity, floral nose. Hoppy, light carmel flavors. Some toast and bread. Nice lace along the glass. A bit watery but still a nice beer.
