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

Light amber with impressive lace - very piney, hoppy aroma, with a touch of caramel malt - very hoppy for an amber, with minimal malt presence - grassy and herbal - not much going on - decent but fairly easy to forget.

A slight disappointment for me, given my great affinity for other Speakeasy brews, particularly Big Daddy. I found the finish to be a little watery as others have mentioned.

Amber body with a nice head. Aroma is very nice - lotsa grapefruity hops. Citrus and caramel as well. Aroma is more like an IPA. Once I tasted this though, it was all downhill. The potential from the aroma disappeared as this came off as light and watery. Slightly bitter with some caramel, but pretty bland.

Citrusy/hoppy aroma. Very strong hop flavor. finishes smooth with a mild malty/hop aftertaste.

This beer is mostly malty with a spicy hop finish. The nose suggests a slight oxidation that overall is not that noticeable on the beers palate. This beer makes for a nice intro beer for those who are not keen to good beer.

There is a very grainy malt tinge to the nose. It pours clear dark copper, with a thin head, but it lingers. It starts out a bit too sugary and sweet then ends like a handful of pine needles. I’m just not enjoying the mix. An interesting, different kind of taste, just not one I really enjoy.

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.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - FEB 20, 2004
12 oz. brown longneck bottle. No freshness date seen. Slight pffftt when opened, so fairly freah, and fairly well carbonated. Poured out a deep orange / copper color, with a thin white head. It slid back to a layer of foam on top of the beer. Aromas are of caramel malts, bright hop notes, and not much more. No yeasty bite to it at all. Tastes ok enough, but nothing spectacular. Malty backbone carries the hops well. Bitter hop notes in the middle and as it's swallowed. Medium mouthfeel is nothing special. Not rich, not creamy, just is. It's an ok beer at best, but if you look at it as a session beer, it's great.

This beer greets the nose with a nice sweet mild aroma of hops. This beer is a rustic brick colored solution, unfortunately only a sandbar of a head is produced. This beer is moderately thick and tingles the palate with a caramel hops taste. A nice hops taste is left lingering on the palate.
