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.

Standout in this category for sure. Sam manages to dive into the niche categories and add there flavor and twist. Doesn't taste as sweet and lemondey? Fresh and drinkable. Still overwhelming lemon but it Is 50%? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer smelled like Trix cereal! I wouldn’t say the taste is "fresh" squeezed lemonade, but rather a toned down tart with hints of grain and a smooth hoppy body. It even almost tasted like Trix cereal. WTF.

Pour is a clear bright yellow with a small white head. Aroma is all things lemon. Flavor is a little 7up lemon with a dry malt base. Deffinatly a refresher but nothing really grabs me about this. Very light lemon and not much else. Folks who don’t like beer would probably like this.

PorterPounder (5190) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 31, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl. - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling medium golden with nice bubble action, initial soft white head that dissipates quickly. Slight lemony aroma, quite fresh, with some hints of hard candy. Flavor is mellow and refreshing with hints of lemon, a touch of grassiness and some slight bitterness in the finish. Crisp mouthfeel. Not bad.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the lemon with some wheat notes thrown in. The flavor is similar. This tastes more like lemonade than it does a beer, but there is a little bit of wheat and biscuit malt to make it somewhat beer like. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not much to like here, but I guess it tastes about like what the brewery was going for.

Fruity Pebbles aroma. Clear yellow color with a small white head. Strong sweet candy flavor throughout. Sunset wheat is bearable but this is shit.

Bottle. It pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is strong with lemons, both the zest and juice. There’s some mild hint of ginger as well. The flavor is all sweet lemon water with some ginger in the finish. Only a hint of tartness to balance the sugary sweet lemonade character, but the spicy ginger saves it from being a complete loss. Not very beery, but refreshing and not at all bad for what it is.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Candied, mellow lemon zest aroma with a hint of ginger. Clear, bright citrine, not much head, bad label. Quaffable, a little salty, moderate carbo (perhaps it loses it quickly, I let mine sit a bit,) medium body. Zippy and entertaining. Low bitterness. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Dont get your knickers in a bunch you beer geeks.... This is a great summer brew... Light yellow in color, nice head. MOFO smell like lemonade... Kind of berlin wiesser like. Taste is a light pale ale with a light touch of tart lemonade. Very refreshing, crisp and clean. Overall: Yeah I can dig it.....you can crush a sixer of it and not feel like shite the next morning.

Poured a clear yellow color with a large white bubbly head. Lots of lemon in the aroma like pinesol. Taste also has lots of lemon with some pale malts. Citrus with some bread. Aftertaste is not great, too much lemon. It would be ok if it was a nice crisp lemon, but it tastes more like pinesol lemon. Refreshing, but there are better beers for a hot summer day.
