Hand carried back from TN. Tallboy can

Appearance: Very murky brown glass holds a solid finger of sticky tan foam.

Aroma: Under attenuated malt, caramel, light earthy hop.

Taste: Sweet, very malty, musty, bit earthy, under attenuated malt. Slight citric note in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Frothy, medium light body, firm carbonation, heavy coat in the finish.

Overall: Didn't care for it. Ends up feeling heavy and syrupy without enough depth or hops to make it interesting.

Poured from a can into a snifter. Very hazy, muddy brown color with a frothy and long-lasting light-tan head. Great lacing and retention. Bready malt on the nose along with faint orange and caramel. The taste followed closely: moderately bitter orange that blended well with a slightly sweet malty presence. Some floral and earthy notes in the late palate. Medium-bodied and clean on the finish.

Pours hazy burnt red color with khaki head smells of hops, resin, citrus. Head dissipates into ring with thin bubbly film on the surface. Medium-bodied, toasted malts with subtle caramel sweetness butressing its robust piney and citrusy hops floor. Finishes silky wirh hops blanketing the palate. Surprising hoppy bite coming from this Southern red.

Thank you richj1970 for this
16 oz can poured into a tulip

A- A murky reddish brown with a two finger off white head.

S- Fairly malty, getting caramel malts, some toasted malts, bready, decent amount of piney hops with some citrus.

T- More balanced than the nose, some citrus up front, caramel malts, some toasted/roasted malts, bitter piney/resiny finish.

M- Smooth, medium body.

O- A decent red ale that I'm happy to drink. Alcohol is well hidden, not the most hop forward imperial red ale I've had, but does have a nice balance between hops and malts.

Poured at 47°F from a 16oz can into a tulip. Allowed to warm up to 50°F before reviewing. Consumed on 18Jul16.
SMELL: Strong aromas of caramel, sweet peaches, white grapes, and pears commingle with mild aromas of vanilla, plums, and figs. Subtle scents of spicy and floral hops provide a minute hop balance to the dominating fruity esters and malt profile.
4.5 out of 5
TASTE: A mild sweetness of peaches, white grapes, pears, and caramel initially step on to the palate. Subtle flavors of campfire and vanilla immediately follow as the fruitiness of the brew becomes stronger. The fruity goodness expands as mild flavors of plums and figs make their debut while the campfire flavors grow faintly more intense. A mild balance of spicy and floral hops joins in lastly as the flavors of vanilla now grow become slightly more dominate.
4 out of 5
NOTE: Southern Prohibition impresses me once again. They aren't a brewery that I ever hear about. The can name and art do not depict something that would stand out, yet here I am, loving this beer. The sweetness really took over until it was met and balanced by a great hop presence. I just wished this tasted as strong as the aroma smelt.
