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

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

tmoreau (2562) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2014 12 oz. bottle poured to a goblet, showing a clear, orangey gold color, with a presentable layer of soft white head foam that quickly diminished to light film, and an almost non-existent ring, with some spotty lacing. The nose was light grain, with light caramel & stone fruit sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste combined sweetness & tartness with a moderate, earthy & rind-like bitterness that together lingered into the finish in a manner not sure of direction, and not totally agreeable on the palate.

Bottle. Light copper with small off white head. Aroma of malt sweetness, biscuit and caramel. Medium body, caramel, and a sweet finish.

Pours a clear light amber. Small creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Caramel, bready, touch of fruitiness. Medium body. Very smooth. Flavor is also sweet malty. Caramel and bready matching aroma. Some earthiness/grain shows up more on the backend. Light toasty dryness and light earthy bitterness, touch of grain spiciness. Nice drinkability. Nothing exciting, However its Pleasant and tasty. Would have again.

Aroma is more hops than malt. Nice medium body with a malty profile. Finishes with a crisp bite, just dry enough to go back for more.

drdisque (569) - Illinois, USA - JAN 3, 2014
From a 12 oz poured in a snifter. Pours clear bronze. Fizzy sweet malt aroma. Flavor is crisp and malty but still refreshing. Very appropriately hopped. One of the best English IPA’s I’ve had.

drywallman (334) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2013
This one poured with a darker but transparent orange hue and had long lasting lacing. The nose was of biscuit and a slight ginger, with a grassy hop finish. Taste confirmed this. Nothing wild, but a good solid package that one could drink a few of in one session.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Clear orange pour with only minimal amounts of head. Nose is filled with bread and hints of alcohol and caramel. Taste is a bit weak, sweet, and very little backbone. Something is a bit off about this one but still decent to drink,
