Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #49 (Feb 2011):
Sometimes, the lightest of the bunch will tell the true worth and expertise of a brewery. Three-fingered head crowns the clear, pale yellow-colored ale. Hints of pale malt, taffy fruit and dusty bread in the nose. Soft, cushy smoothness super- sedes the crisp bite with a light creaminess. Smacks of dry, bready malt, which sticks to the palate. Mild exotic fruitiness with a very faint alcoholic ester. Hops flavor it very well and keep the malt in check. "Superb" would be a simple word to use for this beer.

Pours a light yellow with a small white head. Looks very light - maybe even disconcertingly so. Nose is very light and clean, very faint hops and just a touch of sweetness. The taste is dramatically clean - like the best version of a bmc beer you've ever had. There is a touch of additional sweetness that clues you in to the style. That said, everything is in balance and harmony - this is really a good beer. Clean, clean, clean. Very nice. Mouthfeel is good carbonation and a slightly sweet finish in the mouth. Overall, I challenge anyone to find me a beer that blows this one out of the water for what it is trying to do.

Thanks to one of my non BA friends for bringing this back from a recent trip home.
A - Poured a golden color with a white head that leaves lacing behind
S - Is of very sweet malt
T - Follows the smell but its tastes very good for the style
M - This beer has a light body with higher carbonation to it
D - To me this is an excellent example of the style very easy to drink with a good taste as a beer geek you won't be blown away but for the style you will be worth a shot

Golden straw bodied with a quick rise and fall of stark white foam. Subsequently, it goes bald and leaves little lacing.
Husky grain aroma, backed with hay, and wetter notions of grass. Touches of wheat and corn.
A brief huskiness rolls across the mouth, as it settles towards saltine crackers, white bread, and hay. Some soft hues of corn and wheat, then phantoms of lemon and honey, and a final, fading, floral note to close on.
It's both crisp and soft, the rolling carbonation feeds lift into the gentle, almost frail, body.
As a no brainer, hot weather quaffer, this absolutely hits the spot. It's probably best compared to a Cream Ale, or even an American Pale Lager. It's an easy-going, enjoyable, clean, simple thing.

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!

Pours a light golden color with a small white head that left some generous lacing. Aroma is sweet and grainy with hints of corn. Taste is sweet up front, plenty of grainy, husky malt flavors, hints of corn, and the lightest of hoppings. Dry on the finish, medium body, very clean and crisp. Good carbonation. This would be a great lawnmower beer if it only came in cans. A very decent and slightly above average AAL.

12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Clear straw/gold body with a fizzy white head. Little retention and no noticeable lacing.
Aroma is grassy and bready. Slight caramel sweetness.
Flavor is bready and crackerlike. Slightly floral. Pretty simple profile.
Light-bodied and with ample champagne-like carbonation. Nice crisp finish.
Overall, this is a simple but pleasant beer. Nothing special, but extraordinarily drinkable. No off-putting flavors whatsoever.
