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

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.

One of those ales that just is an ale and nothing else. Doesn’t taste like a pale, a bitter, a brown, etc. Rather straightforward, bland but, er, decent.

Dark amber with a small, creamy head. Sweet grain and malt on the nose. Sweet up front with a malty background and light hops bitterness throughout. Fades to a crisp fruity finish with a light tingle of carbonation. Palate feels a bit thin but still on the low end of medium bodied. Not spectacular but a pretty decent beer.

Amber pour with light beige head. Aroma is caramel malt. Taste- malty, caramel, a little hops. Average beer. OK aftertaste.

Bottle - Poured this one with real low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Golden amber with a nice foamy white head. Grainy and malty on the nose, with a good deal of yeast and a touch of tropical fruit. Taste has a nice malty base, smooth with a decent hop snap. Really nice fruity grains and a touch of sugary caramel. Smooth and well-carbonated. Not much to analyze, but easy drinking and decent taste.

22oz bottle. Cloudy orange tan color. Sweet and sugary, with a 6-row grainy mouthfeel. Sub-par stuff all the way, odd light orange soapiness. Unimpressive. A pinch better than macro swill, I suppose.

sampler flight at the brewpub. golden yellow with a wispy white head. another mild, but yet nicely flavored beer with earthy grains and caramel malts. mildly bitter with some mineral notes. almost bland, but has enough going on to make it an acceptable session beer on a hot day.
