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.

Smells like lemon lime soda. Any head that was there has instantly vanished. It tastes like lemons, but is not sour enough to seem convincing. The beer backup flavor is fine. Fake carbonation makes it seem a lot like Im drinking beer flavored sprite though.

Pours a clear dark yellow with a fluffy white head. Smells like lemon pinesol, lemonade and fruit loops. Palate is basically similar to a carbonated lemonade. Sweet with some tartness

Lemon bomb, very little else, almost tastes like a shandy. Not a big fan of this at all, whoops.

I may have stumbled upon the perfect lawnmower beer. Light and crisp with a great lemony tone, the lemony zing in the finish keeps you coming back for more. You can still taste the beer underneath the lemon, which comes across as very juicy, and not sugary at all. Well done.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 3, 2013

ellolovey (454) - Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear honey color with a quick to go fizzy head. Aroma of lemons and fruit loops. Taste like a bad lemonade. Wheat and lemon soda. Overwhelming lemon flavor. Lemon beer not my thing. Tart finish with a horrible lingering finish.

fidelis83 (1953) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 2, 2013
Clear, pale gold pour with a thin, creamy, eggshell head that has poor retention despite a very high effervescence. Aroma of sweet lemonade, light toast and sweet, fruity Fruit Loops and floral notes. The flavor is not nearly as bright and fruity as the aroma, Fruit Loops, floury grain, doughy yeast and a lingering lemon oil finish. Lightish somewhat slick palate with a light, soft and blanketing carbonation. Not to bad as far as Shandys/Radlers go, but they are definitely not my thing. Could have been a little drier and more carbonated.

Bottle. Golden beer with an off-white head. Lemon and malt aroma. Lemonade (lemon, tart, slightly sweet) flavor with malt.. Medium-light bodied. Refreshing. Sweet/tart lemon lingers with light malt.
