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.

12 oz bottle - Pours golden yellow; white head. Aroma of bread and citrus. Simple flavors of sour bread and lemonade.. at least that’s what I got out of it. Somewhat refreshing... Needs something...like boiled crawfish to go with.

Bottle at home, from Beers of Summer Variety Pack. Clear yellow pour, virtually no head retained. Aroma is lemon and wheat. Taste follows suit. Nice lemony finish with a bit of hops. Not cloying. No complexity at all, but I could drink about a dozen of these.

Pours light golden with minimal head. The aroma is sweet with lemon zest pervading. The taste follows suit. Nothing outlandish and very refreshing but its nothing special

Aroma of wheaty beer and lemonade. Taste is the same. Pretty refreshing but its hard to drink more than half of one.

Uh, a Radler at 4.5%? Fresh bottle best by Sept. Big lemonade nose, cloying and fruity, pours bright clear golden with a big fizzy white head. Taste is very sweet but not overwhelming, there’s a tendency toward artificial sweetener but that problem is soon overcome by Sammy’s proprietary bready finish. Spritzy and tart, lemony light body, not watery or offensive. Not incredibly beery, but they’ve done well here!

DocLock (9857) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle from summer variety pack. Pours hazy straw colored with a finger or so of off-white head. Nose is lemon, pale malt, hops. Tastes lemony, sugary, with notes f pale malt, mild hops, and more lemon in the finish.

Aroma of lemons and malt. Taste is sweet and lemony. Very smooth, and goes down easily. A nice, drinkable summer beer for after you cut the lawn.

Well it is certainly quite strong in the lemon, both in the aroma and the flavor. It is light but I don’t really lemons or lemonade, so.

Bottle-- battle of the shandys, I guess, as this was pitted against Leinenkugel’s summer shandy. This was better by a long shot, with a better base beer to begin with and lemon character that seemed more genuine, a little more tart. Still too sweet for my taste, with the lemon overpwering the beer. I can see why some people find this style refreshing, but I’m not one of them.
