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

Orange color with not much head. Really strong hop scent. Hmm...I taste hops, and some hops, and let me see...oh yeah, hops! In other words, I think this beer is a wee bit unbalanced. Is a little bit sweeter than I"d expected. Malts start crawling in at the end, but too little, too late in my opinion.

Amber-red color. Thick, smooth off-white head that held reasonably well. Citrusy and slightly floral nose. Flavor is slightly malty-sweet but dominated by hop flavors later. Dry finish with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Relatively low carbonation. Good enjoyable beer, but aren’t they all?

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Bottle, courtesy riversideAK. Pours a clear copper color. Wet lacing, and a nice frothy white head. Decent spotty lacing. Hoppy aromas. Very hoppy, in fact. Pine, honey, and some distant caramel. Soft honey flavor, with caramel, and some subdued malt flavor. Really hoppy. Not too balanced, and not very easy to drink; not a great sign for an amber at 6.1%. On its own though it’s good.

27.02.2009, 12 fl oz. The colour is orange brown. Aroma is dominated by hops, but there is also malt. Nice hoppy taste and aftertaste. Nice

This is a very interesting beer which has a lot going on. It is something of a malt bomb, and is very cereal-y but not necessarily in an unpleasant way. There’s tons of malt and cereal notes in both the aroma and flavor up front. But it’s also a tad grain-y and over-the-top with the maltiness. Aroma has some nice hoppiness too...it’s just a little unbalanced in the way of the malt. The more I drank the more sort of off the malt notes seemed to me...a touch sour and weird. The good news is that the later I got and the warmer the beer got, the more assertive the hoppiness became. Appearance was a hazy brown with nice head. So, I was impressed by the complexity of this beer. But the end of the day, I just didn’t enjoy it all that much. And isn’t that what drinking beer is all about?

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2012 Pours a dark amber color with a moderate, creamy head. Aroma of bread dough and hops. Smooth malty flavor, but a fine bitterness as well. A slight sour note on the sides of the tongue - a bit unpleasant, but not overpowering. Very full bodied.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours a maple syrup color with a deep orange hue. Aroma of caramel and malt, with a distinct molasses sweetness. Taste is a very nice blend between malt and bitter sweetness. Overall a good amber ale with a slight bite that dissolves quickly.

12oz bottle. Murky deep amber with a huge, foamy, beige head and some lacing. Aroma of bread/biscuit dough, cherry and light vinegar. Flavor is biscuity malt with a light tartness and mild hop bitterness. Medium body with active carbonation. I think this one was slightly infected, would like to try again.
