One of my "go to beers". Hands down, a damm good beer. Been looking forward to this review for a while.

View, a nice cloudy light gold, nice 3 fingers of foam. Left some patchy lacing behind.

The smell is quite light, yeast, malt, some sweet corn.

This was the first true Pilsner style beer I've sampled. Out of the many, it got me hooked on a style thats now my second choice next to a hearty lager. Its got the malt heavy upfront, and middle, hops with a slighty dry finish. This beer has a hard to describe fruity/herbal note in the background that most of the better pilsners have had that I have tried. Potosi says they use the traditional Saaz hops, this must be that distinct flavor. The hops, and malt are perfectly combined in this brew. As it warms both hop, and malt intensifies. Man, just a good beer.

I like the old style Potosi label on the bottle. It is always nice to see the old Potosi signs that still hang on many of the buildings in Grant Co ( Wisconsin ) from days long past.
