Found out this flag ship beer is brewed in Stevens Point and you can tell the difference between those produced in housed. The beers produced in the brewpub are fantastic. Those in bottle have a huge drop off.

A - Light, straw color with a large, smooth, sticky, frothy, bright white head. Good retention but little lace is left.

S - Grainy malt dominates along with a touch of wheat grain/spiciness. Hints of grassy and floral hops.

T - Grainy/wheaty flavors are dominant. There is a subtle spiciness that often accompanies wheat. Light grassy and earthy hops, nothing too strong but enough to be present.

M - Light body with average carbonation. Pretty crisp and clean.

D - Easy to drink beer for the summer. Nothing too exciting, but it's fairly refreshing.

Notes: Decent beer for someone who typically drinks macros/adjuncts. Easy to drink and refreshing that makes a decent replacement for adjunct lagers and the likes.

The beer had a nice straw color and a one finger head. The beer had a a light clean smell. The beer had a light taste with a little sweetness, which was very nice for a blonde ale. This is a very good,drinkable beer that serves as a good session beer you can have plenty of.

Had a bottle at Cottage Grove beer fest.

A=Very light yellow, thin head.

S=Almost none.

T=Almost none...more like a light beer, with a hint of malted barley. Like drinking water.

M=Very light...like water.

O=Even worse than I expected...not good at all.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Clear pale straw color with two fingers of foamy froth for a head that retains structure for about a minute and a half but has only minimal lacing.

S. Light floral / herbal hopping and honeyed pale malts.

T. Dry crusty bread and floral flavors with grassy (hay, straw) overtones. Gets a very light rise of honey sweetness in the mid-sip, which fades in and out gently like a welcome visitor who knows the proper time to take his leave.

M. Thinner side of medium-bodied, yet very creamy soft and silky smooth in texture. Lightly carbonated but with the lighter heft it doesn't really matter as much.

A very refreshing summer beer, well done Potosi!

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a shaker pint glass.

A: Clear, pale yellow color with one finger of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass and a few dense streams of small bubbles rise in the column.

S: Weak hops are both grassy and spicy, with no detectable malt. Obnoxiously clean, for an ale.

T: Begins dry, with grain that is refined almost beyond the point of recognition. Acidity is initially mild while dried hay hop aromatics prevail, but then becomes slightly citric, mixed with esters, in the seltzery middle. Light floral hop flavors flee across the palate before yeasty bread is established during the bitter-free finish.

M: Thin viscosity, watery and insubstantial on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: This is a mediocre and predictable pale beer, guaranteed not to offend and probably likely to be lost in the shuffle of a herd of various macro adjuncts. It should prove refreshing to those who drink it in search of refreshment, but in terms of qualities worthy of critical consideration it just doesn't register.
