Potosi Steamboat Shandy

Potosi Brewing Co.

USA

Shandies are often homemade, a mix of a light beer and lemonade, but Wisconsin has a few breweries that has a bottled version (Leinie's has one). Potosi is the best one I've had yet, and I wonder if it has to do with the fact that they used a golden ale instead of a light lager, thus using a beer with slightly more character. The lemonade dominated, but you still had the malty flavor mixed in, and a slight hoppy finish. This would be absolutely perfect on a hot day. I bought it last summer and just now got around to drinking it. I think on my next visit to Wisconsin in the summer, I might get a six pack of this and enjoy all of them outdoors when the weather is warm.
