3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Says "Czech style pilsener". Well 6% abv is already a bit high. 12 oz twist off bottle purchased cold from the brewery.
It pours pretty much like a czech pils, hard to get that one too wrong.
It smells like a blonde ale, not a czech pils.
The taste is closer to a czech pils than most but it still is too sweet and too undeveloped.
American brewers REALLY need to taste czech and german pilseners, because they are reaching when they call their beers czech or german style.

Bottle. Corn/barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet corn/barley malt, hay and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Decent body. More like a mediocre pale lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, brilliant golden with a white head. The aroma picked up kind of dank bread and grainy notes with dusty earth and light floral accents.. clean, but almost to a fault because it was very reserved. The flavor found bread and honey sweetness at the core, with toasted grains laced throughout.. spicy and floral accents were interesting, but a touch sharp.. lemon zest and medicinal notes joined the spicy stuff on the fairly assertive finish. Light-bodied with tighter, prickly carbonation on the palate.. decent balance.. drinkable, but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle brought back from the Midwest. Poured a clear golden yellow color with a small white head. Aroma was notes of biscuit, malt, some light earthy hops. Flavor was crisp lagered beer - sweet malts. Pretty good, easy to drink and despite it being a bit high, sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Potosi brewpub in Southwestern Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear golden yellow colored brew, some carbonation bubbles with a thick white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind excellent lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt with grassy hops,a hint of white pepper and crisp crystal malt. Taste is light to medium bodied, sharp grassy hop bitterness with golden grain malt and some extra carbonation. Finish is semi-dry, grassy hop bitterness that slowly disappears. Much hopper and less fruity than the regular Potosi pilsener. Definitely a solid Czech style pilsener.

Draft at Old Fashioned. Filtered pale yellow-peach. Thin non-head. The noble hops carry it, while the malts are a little fruity and it displays sort of Ale-like tones,,not very Lagery..or true to style. Not outright bad, just sort of amateurish. Not one I’d seek out again.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear gold with a quick white head.
Scent is grain, barley, light fruit.
Taste is barley...a little cornflake, slightly bitter pils, lemon.
Pretty dry...a little stale, but not too bad.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 Very bread based in every way, decently malty as well. Among the better Potosi beer.
