3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Potosi Brewery. Served a reddish amber with a nice fine foam head that slowly faded to lace. Aroma of sweet malts and moderate hops. Front end of taste was nicely malty and it finished with a smooth moderate hop finish. Palate was very good. Overall, this was a very nice brew - somewhat similar to their Cave Ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bright orange color with a big white head that leaves good lacing on the glass.
The flavor is toasty and malty with a mild bit of earthy hops. The beer is lightly sweet smelling.
The flavor is toasty and chocolaty with a good clean malt character. The beer is nicely bitter with a good orange fruit character. The beer has a good dosing of earthy hops.
Gracious! This stuff is 7% abv? I would have never guessed that. It’s pretty nice tasting beer either way.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Aroma is malty and nutty; some bread and biscuit, caramel, and faint hops. Pours a clear amber with off-white head, average retention, bit of lacing. Flavor: biscuit and bready, some caramel and toast, but mostly edging towards the biscuit. Moderate hop bitterness, some hop flavor (spicy and herbal). Medium body, low-medium carbonation. Solid beer, a touch strong for the style but very pleasant and drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Potosi brewpub in Potosi, Wisconsin. Pours a semi-clear dark amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. aroma of roasted caramel malt, some biscuity grain, medicinal spice and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, average carbonation with flavors of dried and toasted caramel malt, a hint of sawdust, medicinal spice and a touch of floral hops. Finish is semi-dry, mildly bitter, yet not over-powering medicinal aftertaste. A solid ESB, everything expected.
