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

"Boldy hopped amber ale" seems accurate — so much so that this amber ale is similar to an American Pale Ale. Grapefruit and pine hop aroma along with floral hops and caramel. The sweet malts are quickly overtaken by the hops. Flavor of grapefruit and light caramel. Medium body. Slighty sticky. Medium finish. Good, but not the "perfect balance’ that’s advertised.

Decent amber ale, moderate body. Malty finish. Hops present arent as aggressive as I thought they’d be. Drinkable.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Bottle: Deep amber, toffee hues, large foamy light beige head, sticky lacing.   Soft toasted malt nose, definite hop presense, on the grainy side.   For an Amber it seems like it might be more Pale Ale oriented in the nose.   Pale malts up front, minor hop bite, a little grainy, otherwise laid back.   Seems a little chalky on the finish.   Lingering grainy bitterness.   Body and mouthfeel are both moderate.   Meh, not enough malt for me to think of it as an Amber.   Fits more of the Pale Ale bill.   Decent, but the aftertaste yields a little metallic funk, along with some plain ole grainy bitterness.

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!

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 12, 2007
12 oz bottle; nose of caramel maltand dark fruit, almost BWish as this is a probably two year old bottle and the hops seem to be gone from the nose. Copper color with a medium straw head; flavor has caramel, some fruitiness, and a decent bitter finish, so many hops survived. Kind of a lighter BW! Better find me a fresh bottle!

Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a dark reddy amber colour with a fast fading tan head. Aroma was pretty caramel malt heavy with fruit and hop notes. Sweetish flavour that lacks any wow factor. Medium bitter finish. Not one that lingers in the memory banks too long.

Cask @ Blind Tiger, NYC. The aroma is sweet, caramel, slight hoppiness. The flavor follows almost exactly, with the sweetnees winning out over the hop bitterness. The color is red/brown, small head. The mouthfeel is medium thickness. The finish is mostly sweet, slight piney hops. Decent, not outstanding.

On cask at Rattle ’N’ Hum. Decent choice for cask as bitter and malts makes it a drinker.

grigoriuri (6) - New York, USA - MAR 6, 2010 does not count
Bottle This beer has perfect visual presentation: great copper/amber color, nice head retention, thick cream colored head, good carbonation, and crystal clear. Hoppy aroma dominates with a little musty, woody slight on the nose. Slightly spicy with a bit of hop bitterness, but not overwhelming as the aroma would have you believe, which makes me think it was dry-hopped well. Caramel and malt peek through and give the right amount of balance to a decent beer.

Tap. Orange amber pour with a foamy beige head. Aroma of pine hop, caramel, and malt. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Solid.
