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

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAY 7, 2002
Bright transluscent orangey-amber color, moderate foam and light carbonation. Nose is initially malty, toffee-caramel, with cascade (?) flowery hop. Palate is medium bodied, spritzy, smoothing towards the end and pretty easy drinking. Caramel flavors are well pronounced and hold up well throughout with some sweetness. Becomes a little too thick at the end, while the crisp citric hop in the finish just struggles to cut through with any authority. May be heavily hopped but I just got a little too much malt in this for my own enjoyment.

Dark cherry amber. Caramel, nuts, orange in the aroma. Bitter, rooty body with long caramel notes.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 23, 2003
A grapefruit and hop aroma with a big rocky head. The flavor is hoppy with a hint of malts to balance and it lingers in the finish.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2003
An interesting blend between citrus and floral hops. Very grassy and almost a touch spicy - the malt is just enough to keep it highly drinkable but there is nothing too fantastically original going on. Not to say it isn't tasty, but there are many an IPA in the region that can boast the same.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2004
Light amber body, very little head. Smells like a lite lemon beer. Very light lemon hinted flavor that almost tastes watered down. Not too hoppy. A fairly good beer, but nothing special. The label said something about caramel flavors. I didn't notice them at first, but i did after i thought about it on the next sip.

ClarkVV (5681) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 25, 2004
2004 bottle. Good enough pour, amber, clear, foamy white head. Smells fresh and hoppy, with some decent wet hay and grain notes, and some watered down caramel malt. Flavor has a good mix of dry, floral hops, light hints of honey and caramel and a good grainy body. Hopping is pretty over the top for what I would expect an amber to be, but since this isnt much of a style, it might as well be assertively hopped. Still, a bit too hoppy for my liking, though the hops are very fresh. A bit boring though as I finish the glass. It’s definitely a good beer, whatever the hell it is.

Not bad. Murky copper body with a beige frothy head. Aroma was citrus, caramel, nutty, malty. Good mouthfeel. Creamy and rich. Flavor was acidic, malty, pleasant. Good drink.

Poured a darker and cloudy amber color with an averaged sized head. Somewhat hoppy and citric. Sweet.
