2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI, served almost ice-cold in a Flying Fish pint glass. Pours very clear pale gold, with a moderate white head that diminishes quickly, leaving fine lacing...only a moderate amount of lemon in the nose, surprisingly, with plenty of pale malt breadiness, also a hint of sourness that seems more a product of yeasty - this actually reminds me more of a straight-ahead wit in the nose; anyway...very sweet in the body, it’s mostly lemonade here, with malts less in evidence and a faint bitterness and metallic touch at the finish which is kind of unpleasant...light yet syrupy body, slightly low on the carbonation side. OK, I don’t think I’m going to be trying too many more shandies this summer...

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale straw color with a touch of haze. Moderate white head. Light dough and flour scents. Thick and nearly to the point of being gluey. Too thick to be very refreshing. A pale lager with lemon curd. 3/11

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2016 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. Thought I’d give it another go, strangely at the same place, a few years later. This time by can, poured to a shaker. Clarity was a bit less, with a light metallic hint adding to the aroma, and low bitterness that had a strange, rind & ripe fruit astringency to it. Not even a refresher at this point. Left a good deal of the glass on the bar, which is not at all my style. -.4

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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
