COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams is currently in the process of brewing up a German style called ďradler.Ē The name radler translates to ďcyclist,Ē A 50/50 (ish) blend of beer and lemonade. (Like a shandy). Perfect for any summer day, Samuel Adamsģ 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.

This looks fine, a heavily bubbling yellow body with a thick white head. It smells like lemonade. It tastes like lemonade. Over all, itís pretty much of a carbonated lemonade. Not for me. Burp.

For what it is, this is a tasty summer brew. Nice lemon taste, with only a hint of hops. I could easily drop a six pack on a hot summer day.

Draft. Nose of citrus. Perfect clarity. Minimal head. Pretty tasty. A subtle sweetness lasts into the finish. Ok. Perfect when youíre thirsty but frank too much the day before.

The aroma is dominated by a strong sour lemony smell. There perhaps is a bit a wheat smell behind it. The color is pale straw with some lacing. It is strong in the lemon taste department. The lemon taste is dominate over everything else the brew may present. If lemon is what you want, this is it. If not, you may want to pass on. For me, itís okay.

Luvystypotables (789) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Aroma of an Arnold Palmer, amber color no head. Taste like a lemon shandy with no real palate. Would be nice on a hot summers day.

Pretty lousy. Taste to strongly of lemonade. Could probably drink this on an 100 degree day floating in a pool but other than that i pass.

Lemon pledge and a little spice in the aroma. Light, sweet flavor with a bitter citrus finish. Iím a bigger fan of Boston Beer than a lot of people on this board, but Iím not defending this one.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with thin white head. Both aroma and flavor overpowered by lemon. Not much to say about this one, if you like the style you will like it and if not you wonít. I donít particularly like the style but itís okay, the so called lawn mower beer. If I was looking for one of these citrus beers, Iíd probably just get Bud light lime for less money as I donít see much difference other than this one is slightly less sweet.

Thin white head.. Good on hot day if ice cold.. Lemon zest thatís really present... Goes down smooth.
