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

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.

tgncc (3020) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2009
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.

puzzl (3257) - New York, New York, USA - APR 22, 2010
Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Floral, violet, light hops, very simple. Very chewy, caramel and crystal flavor, over-sweet like all of their stuff. Some diacetyl. Pretty lame.

Blake (396) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Had from 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine and More. Pours standard amber color of an amber ale, good tan/off-white head, nice carbonation and lacing. Aroma is pretty standard amber with tons of malts, bread, caramel, and faint addition of hops. Taste is well balanced, perhaps just a bit too many malts for my liking. Would have liked just a little more hop bitterness to even it out. Flavor is mostly sweet, malty, hints of some caramel, but just not enough hops for me. A good amber ale though. Very representative of the style. Nothing extreme or out of the ordinary.

hivemind (780) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Growler filled at 9th Ave Vintner on 8/19/2011. Pours a deep amber with a medium, caramel-colored head that looks delicious. No noticeable hue. Hard to get a sense of the aroma, but I think this one is mostly malts and a little bit of smokiness. Roasty malts and medium hop profile on the palate, with some sort of buttery sweetness (origins unknown).

Amber color with a toffee aroma. Taste is of malts, brown sugar and coffee. Pretty tasty.
