COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams is currently in the process of brewing up a German style called “radler.” The name radler translates to “cyclist,” A 50/50 (ish) blend of beer and lemonade. (Like a shandy). Perfect for any summer day, Samuel Adams® Porch Rocker was inspired by traditional Bavarian Radlers that mix beer with German-style lemonade. For our bright and citrusy Radler, we blended a Helles beer with lemon for a fresh-squeezed lemon taste, effervescent sweetness, and slightly tart, refreshing finish. A light malt character and hint of hops balance out this summer brew.

Poured fro a 12 oz bottle into a Chimay chalice. Pours cider gold with minimal head. Significant carbonation and modest mouthfeel. Aroma of citrus, cider, slight bread dough. Flavors of light apple, lemon, powder sugar. Overall light and refreshing with minimal malts or hops. It’s obviously not a "regular" beer or style, but interesting, certainly fine for a summer session when hot, and not as sweet and sour as a shandy.

Bottle. Light golden with small white head. Aroma of lemons. Light body with strong lemon presence upfront and not much of malt flavor or hop bitterness to balance it out.

Clear gold pour with a fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lemonade and grain. Taste is sweet lemonade and sweet malt. A hint of bitterness in the finish to try to fight the sweetness. Medium body. Light carbonation tingle in the end. Not bad but there are other summer beers I prefer.

Light malty aroma that is overpowered with lemonade lemony scent Pours clear light gold color with quickly disappearing head Lemonade lemony flavor at first followed by bready maltiness. Medium bodied with medium CO2.lemony malty lingering finish Actually a pretty decent style of beer. Good for summer days. This is just a tad too sweet. I Wish the malt came through more as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass. Clear golden color with a minimal head. Light citrus notes, somewhat artificial lemon candy aroma and light malt. Sweetish flavor with minor tartness, bread and orange cake. No bitterness. Light body, somewhat refreshing but overall not very good. Must be drunk extra cold.
