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

Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Notes that are fruity, caramel, bready, slight hop character. This beer shows signs of oxidization. Would be better if fresh.

Good. Tastes more like a porter then an amber. Pours a dark red amber with a grey head. Smells very hoppy. Taste is thick and creamy with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear and copper with a head that disappears slowly. The aroma is sweet and malty with caramel notes. Taste is sweet with a bit of light bitterness. Medium bodied with long aftertaste. Overall a quite good beer. Nothing outstanding, but a fine beer for drinking with friends.

Draft at dodge city. Very sweet and malty. Taste like caramel. Smells like caramel, chocolate, malty.

12 ounce bottle. This one fell flat on me. It was sweet, mellow, and generally uninteresting. The convoluted hop blend unfortunately combines into the palate equivalent of a grade school art class paint mush grey. Amber-copper color, good carbonation and a hardy, medium bodied mouthfeel.

jgb9348 (4986) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 22, 2003
Copper in colour with a super thin tan head. Strong hoppy aroma paired with a sense of rye and some balanced malt. Medium to Light-Bodied; Very minimal amount of taste, I was expecting a lot more. Definate hoppiness with that same rye character showing through. Balanced well with malt, the aftertaste barely shows any bitterness. Somewhat dry finish, but nothing overwhelming. Overall, I was actually disapointed with this, as I prefered the Big Daddy IPA to this one. I owe a big thank you to Jah_noth for this twelve ounce bottle in a local trade. Cheers Dan!

Iím not a fan of filtered/non bottle conditioned beers. They arenít lying about the hops in here. Ok amber. I accidentally bought this instead of their APA. Whoops...

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2004
More than decent effort at a less than decent style. Copper body, 1 cm lasting head. Very nutty flavor, somewhat grapefruity too. Maple-like maltiness serves as a base for the hops. Finish is sadly short. Firm medium body, crystal malt boosted I believe. Very drinkable if not thought inspiring.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Sunset orange. Again I am getting a touch of honey in the aroma, just like I did with their India Pale Ale, along with a touch of caramel covered red apples, toffee and a huge resinous hop scent. Watery texture and very thin in body. Notes of caramel, toffee, bright fruits and west coast hops. Overall, just very bland.

Clear, dark amber body with a cream colored head. Pungent - malt base with strong hoppiness and a touch of honey sweetness. Body is a bit thin. Caramel malt flavor is present but slightly subverted by a smokey flavor. Hops lead to a dry, grassy aftertaste.
