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

The first thing that strikes me about this beer is it’s lovely copper red color but it unfortunately goes down a bit from there. The nose has a nice floral hop presence but nothing too vibrant or striking. This is a bit on the sweet side and well balanced but the finish is a bit metallic which really diminishes the overall experience. The texture is nice and creamy and not too thick as not to be drinkable but because of that harsh bitterness it is hard to enjoy fully.

EithCubes (4640) - New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottled on 03/13/14. Nose is crytal-heavy with sweet hops and a touch of caramel, pours a very pretty scarlet with full carbonation and a rocky tan head. Taste is somewhat dry with hoppy bitterness striking firmest at the back end, lots of earthy toffee and caramel with faint booze seepage. Light-medium body, barest hint of dough behind the bright citrus, crystal, caramel. A little green, but only barely, otherwise really refreshing and strikes a nice balance.

solidfunk (3023) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2014
Pours clear maroon with ok head and lacing. Finishes kind of bitter and rusty. Not my thing really - a pour out. Tap at DC Beer festival.

pintbypint (2391) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 13, 2014
650ml brown bottle. Orangey red pour, fairly clear. Small but creamy and long lasting tan head, good sticky lace. Nose has some bright pine and citrus hops and some earth and caramel. Taste has toffee malts, nut, toasted malt, bit of roast and earth, orange peel and piney hops. Aftertaste has citrus and pine hops and a bit of lasting malts. Medium bitterness. Overall a very pleasant amber ale, good balance and way better than expected.

BillWyce (673) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours clear amber with a 1-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of grapefruit hops with some caramel malt underneath. Medium body with a light dryness to the finish. Flavor of grapefruit hops that lingers through the finish, with a touch of caramel underneath.

maxwelldeux (3090) - Everett, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is well balanced with a nice mix of slightly floral elements and a bit of caramel coming through. Taste is a little sweet, yet remains light enough to be an easy drink. I can’t complain about this one too much. Not bad.

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - MAR 28, 2014
DATE TASTED: March 3, 2014... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky’s Tavern pint.. OCCASION: a Strat and Game of Thrones night... APPEARANCE: intimidating dark amber body; thick, creamy, beige two-finger head that proudly sits a good duration... AROMA: beautiful balance of caramel malts and bright West Coat hops; low citrus, more aromatic and flowery...PALATE: good beer/head mix in the sip, with the creamy viscosity rounding full-bodied impact...TASTE: a BIG pale ale, as old and well-intentioned as the 18th amendment itself; big pine cone bite, warm and malty late... OVERALL: I came back to this beer a decade after I introduced it at a house party (it was wildly successful that afternoon)--and after taking it to a poker night, I found a similarly positive reaction; strong, demanding pale ale that gently shakes the teeth and smooth out the throat; the caramel especially sweetens the end...

Nicely balanced. Nutty malt flavor with hints of earthiness give way to a bitter hops punch that travels through the finish. Very easy to drink. I’ll make sure to have this again.

On draft. Pours a rusty amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of red and caramel malts, some earthy and pine hops. Flavor is oxidized, mildly sweet, generically bitter. Somewhat metallic. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Average palate in general. This is mediocre.
