Brewed with Wisconsin-grown Czech-style hops and Wisconsin malted barley, our Pils is carefully lagered to obtain a clean malt flavor, a crisp floral finish. Potosi Czech Style Pils is our salute to Wisconsin’s rich lagering tradition.

12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI, served slightly warmer than fridge temp from a König Pils glass. Moderate white head, quickly diminishing atop a very clear gold body...pleasant light grassy hop aroma, light touches of honey and vanilla...body mostly sweet at the front, some bitterness running throughout and growing nicely towards the finish, which is slightly mineralic, very faintly smoky, and dry...mostly this is a nice malt-heavy experience with the hops definitely playing second fiddle; it is a bit too sweet to make it a favorite, but I’ve drunk quite a bit of it over the past couple of years anyway as it’s typically cheaper than most of the other decent pils I can get around here. Eh, money.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Pale golden to straw in color. Moderate, fairly stable, white head. Grass, plastic and hint of floral hops. A few dots of lace. Fairly sweet in the start, with some corn sugars and hint of pale malt. Moderate bitterness return mid to late swallow. Close, but missing in the clean, crisp malt department. 12/10

12 ounce bottle
A generous friend shipped me two of this so I could get a taste of what Wisconsin was brewing over the winter months. A typical Potosi release doesn’t swing for the fences but scrambles for a double. A benchmark to use for better versions, the taste and profile are average in almost every way.

Aroma / Appearance - A flat golden base rests underneath a pillar of starchy white head. Grainy lemons, breadcrumbs, and dusty paperback novels pepper the air with hints and promises of what most people would consider "the smell of beer".

Flavor / Palate - Lemon butter, graham crackers, and custard rinse the palate clean. A tangy dryness permeates the transition to a clean basic finish. The residue of pie filling sticks in the mouth. Overall the total profile isn’t flawed but it just lacks anything that makes it more interesting than just something taking up space on local shelves.

12/27/15. 12oz bottle from a mix 12pk from a random store in Geneseo. Clear light golden pour with a small off-white head. Light floral and grassy aroma, cement dust, raw pizza dough. Okay flavor, chalky, bready, crackers, floral. Eh.

Bottle from mix pack, pours a hazy old with a thin head, aroma has a slight amount of grass and cracker and the flavor is much of the same, light grain on the front end with a slight floral touch in the finish, kind of skunk too, meh

pkbites (864) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2015
On tap @ World of Beers, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Average looking yellow pour with faded white head. Slight citrus nose and subtle citrus flavor. Little malt, hops, or yeast to speak of. Super "MEH". Not horrible but very unremarkable.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear bright gold with a nice white head. Mild aroma of malt, grain, and fruit. Taste is sweet malt, grain, and fruit. Decent fresh.
