1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, 12oz. It’s a clear, pale golden drink with a dense, two-finger, off-white to white head. Some lacings occur. That’s where the good part stops. The aroma is more or less exclusively lemonade, just a faint hint of beer reach my nose. The flavor has the same problem, the lemon overpowers the beer completely. It’s dry, effervescent and medium bodied on the palate, finishing with lemonade and a beery twist. Ok, so they accomplished what they were aiming for, that authentic German radler taste and aroma. Plus more body due to the higher alcohol level. But I still don’t think it’s a good drink. At least it’s not awfully artificial like some of the Germans. 130819

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
The Porch Rocker is sickeningly sweet, akin to Country Time powder being poured into a light kolsch. Artificial tasting and cloying.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
There are better premixed Radlers. This is yellow in color with a short lived white head. Smells of 7up and lemonade. Lemon juice with a bitter lemon pith finish. Lots of sofa pop sweetness. Really doesn’t seem to be well integrated.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
