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.

It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. It has a skunky aroma and smells of lemon and malt. It has a nice lemon taste to it which goes well with the beer. Very refreshing and tasty. I’d love to buy this again.

As far as summer shandys go its a solid one. Seems built more for mass appeal and super drinkability.

HighlanderOne (1115) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Poured from bottle. Aroma of lemon and malt. Golden with barely a head. Big lemonade flavor backed by malt. Having had radler/shandy style before in Europe, this seems true to the style.

Bottle. This has a pretty mild flavor for a shandy. It wasn’t too sweet. Pretty light malt flavor. Not bad if you are in the mood for a shandy.

berkshirejohn (5513) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2014
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. Pale amber with a ring of white head; grainy aroma; lemony taste with a grainy body; and a clean finish. Just what a Radler is supposed to taste like - light and refreshing.

firemarshal (199) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours crystal clear light amber. Nose of wheat, lemongrass, straw. Just a little skunky at first but after it opens up that’s gone and changes to a dough aroma. Taste to me is a typical wheat beer with lemon concentrate added. Not too sweet. Not too sour. Has a bite on the tongue and leaves a lingering saccharin aftertaste. Great beer for hot summer days as advertised. Not too bad overall.

I love this beer. It's a shandy with more of a beer taste. I also like the bright flair to it. It's a beautiful light amber color and and you can even smell a little bit if that lemony aroma. Great beer for the summer and super easy to drink! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
