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

12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting head. Faint nose of caramel, biscuit and a hint of citrus. Flavor is the same blend, with maybe some toasted nut. Light-medium body is smoothly carbonated and watery, so as to go down easy.

Amber color. Smooth drinking and a somewhat sweetly malty. Not very hoppy. Pretty easy drinking. I quite liked it. Serving: Bottle

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

12 ounce bottle from Woodmans West Madison. Pours a clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, raisin and a faint bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

12oz bottle, pours a clear copper with a thin soapy white head, aroma is sweet with bread notes and sweet malt, the flavor has something a little off to it, kind of a metal sting in the finish. Nothing really stands out in this brew.

Caramel, toasty bread, and mild floral hops aroma. Orange-Amber with quickly disappearing head. Caramel, mild hop bitterness, earthy, and mild toast flavours. Medium bodied with mild carbonation and mild bitter finish. Reminds of an English ESB.

Bottle poured a clear amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and spice. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and spice with a smooth dry lingering earthy finish.

I thought this was a pretty decent brew.Poured a golden light color with a small head that dissapates to a thin layer of foam letting you know its still well carbonated.English grain smell with a clean and fresh water.Nice light malt taste,some yeast,lightly medium body.A little citrus/lemon taste towards the end and finishes very slightly sticky but clean and makes you want to keep drinking more.Easy drinkability.I was expecting it to be average and was turned off by the low ibu’s but turns out its more pale ale than expected with the 10 ibus.Now im curious about the others and may even take a road trip to the brewery.

Thanks to BeerFMAndy for this bottle. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours a moderate copper color that is entirely transparent. A bit odd in how transparent it is. A small amount of white head forms after the initial pour, though there isn’t too much retention. The nose brings a bit of bready caramel and not too much else. The taste is really quite plain with some mild bready character. There is some mild caramel in the background. The feel is light to medium with low carbonation. I will say that the finish is fairly smooth. Drinkability is okay. No real flaws, just nothing to get me to drink more. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 02-02-2011

I’m not sure what style this is, it is a mid abv, somewhat sessionable beer. It is light with a hint of fruit.
