The best shandy I have had so far. Much better than Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy.

Slightly cloudy yellow, thick foamy head. Nose of wheat, lemon drops. Sweet, sugary, with some lemon but an unfortunate unclean wheat finish. Way too sugary sweet for me.

bottle. Golden with minimal head. Sweet and pretty syrupy. Light lemonade flavor. I’d prefer this to Leiney, but that’s about it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured a clear gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of bread, lemon and light yeast. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and lemon zest with a crisp lingering lemon finish.

This sweet garbage is actually one of the best things Potosi makes. It smells like caramel and old malt but tastes like carbonated lemonade. It sugary and a bit tart with a slight juicy texture and moderate to vigorous carbonation. Definitely, I’d be comfortable saying this is a cut above similar beers by, say, Leinenkugel. So damned by faint praise but at least I can come up w/ some sort of praise for this beer. If I had to drink more than one beer by Potosi at a sitting, I’d chose this one.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker at the Shoreline Restaurant bar in Gill’s Rock, WI., displaying a clear, golden hue, with a modest layer of white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was sweetness, ripe apple, some lemony tartness, and a brief medicinal hint. The taste was similar, quite sweet & appley, light bodied, and lively carbonated. Not bad as a palate refresher, but somewhat cloying to me.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2014 Very, very sweet. I find this close to undrinkable. The lemon flavor is almost like a syrup. Must be why this was on sale at the brewery. Glad I only grabbed one for my mix 6 pack. Much more prefer a Summer Shandy from Leinie. This will not be making much profit for charity.

Poured from bottle. Creamy head in a yellow clear pour. Grain and earthy aroma. Fruity and sweet taste. Syrupy almost. Not great. Better in summer probably

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear dark yellow with about a finger of white head. Aroma of dried lemon and some grains. Taste is heavily sweet. Like minute-maid lemonade with an aftertaste of beer. Light bodied with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. Great beer for summer. I’m drinking this while working outside so it’s good for the moment.
