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.

Pleasant beer, right for summer. Nice aroma of grass and lemon; taste light and dry with nice balance of malts and lemon; good and different

ben4321 (5360) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Rodman’s, 4/20/13

Aroma: The nose is sweet and fruity, with plenty of lemon, and some yeast/grains as well
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a decent sized white head atop it
Flavor: The taste is sweet and lemony, a little bit of yeasty flavor, and a some tart hints as well
Palate: The body is light, it is easy to drink, but a little too watery
Overall Impression: This stuff is only mediocre, even for what it is trying to be. It felt lacking in some way. It does an alright job of being being a shandy/radler, but at the same time, it just lacked a little of what I was looking for.

A clear yellow with honey, lemon, and tart citrus on the nose. The beer seriously tastes like a mild pale ale mixed with lemonade.

Bottle. Poured an aggressive fizzy looking color. Smells and tastes line sweet artificial sugar. Reminds me of the leinenkugel summer shandy and that awful curious traveler ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flute glass. Smells of lemonade and a hint of wheat. Very plain appearance, light gold with almost no head or lacing. I was hoping for a summer shandy type beer unfortunately this isn’t it. Very little lemon taste, or any taste for that matter.

Bottle into a goblet. Pour is a honey yellow with a fine head. Aroma is well lemonade with a malt back. Taste is all most the same as aroma. Finish is a nice bitter lemon, this will be s great drink on a hot day.

Bottle @ home. Pours a clear golden appearance with a bubbly, white head that dissipates quickly. Tons of lemonade and a sort of corn-like character to the aroma. Flavor is a bit syrupy, sweet, corny, and strangely, slightly medicinal. Kind of refreshing but mostly unappetizing and nasty. I wanted to like this and I think there’s a market for radlers in the US but this sucks balls.
