2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Sweet aroma, lemons, malt. The apearance is hazy yellow/amber, white head. The flavor is sweet, more lemonade than beer. The finish is citrus. Medium/light in bidy. Poundable.

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

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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 My first from the 2013 variety pack. Bottle into pint glass, very clear yellow-orange body with bright white head disappearing very fast into a lacing. Aroma of tart lemons, malt sweetness and some hay notes. Taste is tangy lemonade, light sourness and grainy. Light body, medium carbonation, clean somewhat oily lemon finish. Better then expected, not a lemon soda. Very drinkable.

From bottle. The Radler style isn’t necessarily new but this is an ok one. Sweet and tangy with the lemonade, nothing though of the hops advertised.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Not gonna get to in depth on this beer since it’s pretty mediocre, but it’s basically what it’s claiming...beer/lemonade. Not a fan personally, but it isn’t offensively bad. I pretty typically hate any kind of beer of this sort, lemonade beer, blueberry beer, etc. They almost always have a weird, artificial flavor to the taste, even if it isn’t they never seem to shake that. If you just got done mowing your lawn after a hot summer afternoon, well maybe this would be pretty crisp and refreshing, but why not just go get a different, better beer? And obviously on the weaker end of beers too. 4.5% alcohol.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a gold color with a white head that dissipates rather quickly. Fresh lemony aroma. Light bodied, taste of a malt-wheat combo with a lemon finish.Not a fan of lemony beers. Not bad, but not great.

12 oz bottle from the Beers of Summer 2013 sampler case. Almost happy to see a consensus of low scoring reviews as I really disliked this offering from Sam Adams. My wife on the other hand loved it, so go figure the variance of taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours thin and translucent with a cheddar orange body and no head. Aroma is lemon punch with a diet lemon/lime soda. Flavor is a light lemon Pledge and saccharin blend, with a hint of grassy wheat in the finish. Average and tingly on the tongue
