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.

This beer has good promise, but is much to lemony for my taste. I can see others find it refreshing but I don’t.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is just sweet lemon. Flavour is like a lemon meringue, sweet lemon more. Sweet finish. Too sweet.

ESBob (379) - Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Poured a golden, slighty yello, clear. White head that disappeared quickly. Aroma is a zesty citrus, sharp. Taste is lemon and some spice. Thin mouthfeel with a semi sweet malt finish. Mow the lawn and slug one down!

Gachupines (1031) - USA - MAY 22, 2013
Pale golden with a light white head. Aroma is heavy on lemons and sweet. Flavor is overly sweet and carbonated lemon, honestly reminds me of soda (specifically Sprite) as much as anything else. Doesn’t strike the right balance to be the refreshing summer beer it wants to be.

b3shine (6275) - Indiana, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes of lemonade watered down by lager. Average on the palate. Underwhelming, but easy to drink.

Bassikpoet (93) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Fruity Pebbles in beer form. Yellow-gold color with white head that disappears quickly. Smells of Fruity Pebbles rather than lemon.

coyforce (621) - Virginia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Smooth and refreshing. Nothing extremely special. Pours a golden yellow with a light head.

Bottle. Leinenkugel has great success with their Summer Shandy--a lemonade with beer. Sam Adams says we can make a better one. And they did.

jmohno (1196) - Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Clear light gold,short head,slight lace. Mostly a sweet lemonade aroma. Smooth mild slick, sweet lemonade taste,some bready orange with a foamy sweetish finish and tangy citrus.It is a 50/50 lemonade/beer but maybe more on the sweet lemonade side overall. It is good.

This beer has a very light color and a light taste that gives you a feel of taking another sip before you even finish the sip you just took. I really like the fragrance of this beer, it hits you as your nose enters the mug as you tip to sip. I get a nice citrus flaver in my mouth after each and every sip I take.
