COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Potosi Pure Malt Cave Ale A long time favorite during Potosiís 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% ē 14P ē 10 IBUís #PotosiBeer #PotosiCaveAle

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

Thanks to Bob for the bomber! Poured medium orange with a thick, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up redder fruits and sweet caramel with pinches of brown sugar.. grassy and earthy accents.. very sweet overall and pleasant. The flavor picked up primarily sweet caramel at the core with a pronounced hop presence around (earth, floral, and spicy notes).. more sweets on the sticky finish. Light-medium bodied with ideal carbonation on the palate.. decent feel.. not a bad drinker.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Pours a transparent deep golden with a thin, spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty caramel malty nose with a touch of piny English hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and carbonation with some toasted caramel and grainy malty notes with a touch of bread and a good amount of resiny bittering and flavor hops before a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. A pretty true to style English Pale Ale.

Bottle. Clear gold-orange pour with a smaller white head. Nose is baked bread and a touch of caramel. Moderate palate - fine for the style. Taste is bread and a bit of caramel sweetness. Easy drinker. Not too bad.

6/14/10. 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Clear amber pour with a small white head that fades fast. The aroma is pretty light - hints at bread and a spicy hop kick. The flavor is toasted bread, biscuits, hard water, a hint of caramel, and earthy hops. Not bad.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 28, 2008
On draught at the brewpub in Potosi, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden pale amber brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind an excellent lacing. Aroma of fruity and golden grain malt, some pear, and both flowery and grassy hops. Taste is light to medium bodied, lighter in carbonation compared to the Good Old Potosi beer, with flavors of golden grain malt, dry leafy hops, and a touch of iced tea. Finish has a light dry bitterness with some iced tea aftertaste at first and then a crisp finish. Another historical brand name "Potosi Pure Malt" has returned to Wisconsin’s southwest.

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 isnít 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
