With a memorable nose of caramel, citrus, and floral notes, Prohibition Ale impresses right from the start. The color of the beer is a deep shade of copper/red, the foam looks nice, and the beer leaves a good amount of lacing as you drink.
The positive qualities continue as you consume. Caramel malt greets the palate first and it is quickly followed by the taste of citrus, toffee, and some resiny hops. Search a little deeper and you discover some nuts, toasted malt, and an overall cleanliness and smoothness that makes it highly quaffable and drinkable.
Amber ales are a highly varied style, but Prohibition Ale seems to have nailed the qualities I expect in an amber ale as well or better than most I have sampled. The beer has a good deal of complexity and yet it still manages to maintain a smoothness that goes down easy. A very nice appearance and other factors combine to make this an amber that I highly recommend.
