COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Potosi Pure Malt Cave Ale A long time favorite during Potosi’s heyday, this is an Amber Ale that has a distinct malt character and a bit more assertive flavor profile which is comparable to an English Pale Ale. This is a medium bodied beer that is not over the top in any respect. Appearance: Deep Amber. Aroma: Malt and Caramel, slight floral aroma from Golding hops. Taste: Malty, light caramel, medium body. 6.5% • 14P • 10 IBU’s #PotosiBeer #PotosiCaveAle

Enjoyed my first Potosi at Masons in Praire du Sac. Awesome beer. Sweet, refreashing. I’d get it again!

Picked up as part of a mix 6 pack during a visit to the brewery. This is one of the better brews from Potosi. A very enjoyable ale. Plus, all profits from Potosi go to charity.

Pretty good beer from the tapper. Malts, caramel, even some grains in there with mild roasting. Good overall ale.
