Pours a clear, copper color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, hint of hop, hint of yeast, but a hint of butterscotch. Fits the style of an English Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, pale malt, hint of hop, hint of yeast, but a hint of butterscotch. Overall, weak appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

I was drinking these in between some other beers this weekend, and unfortunately this Potosi Cave Ale was my least favorite. It is very malty, but the malt flavor is not good. Chewed up bubblegum, wet paper, stale tasting, squishy grainy feel, and very little if any hop presence. This was a new six pack, not old or stored. Not a very good English Pale.
