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.

Clear yellow pour with a thin white head, looks good. Aroma is of sugar and lemons. Medium carbonation, light bodied. A bit tart up front, lemonade flavor, some light toasted maltiness, cane sugar finish. Exactly as described. Honestly, I would be more interested to try the helles before it was mixed with the lemonade. I’m sure it’s pretty refreshing on tap, like a lemonade version of shock top. Good for what it is.

Not one of Sam Adams better brews. Sweet and uninteresting with a light malt flavor.

Golden color with light head. The lemony flavor is overpowering the other fruity undertones.

The lemon flavoring in this beer works better than most flavorings. It goes nicely with the malt, but the low hops taste doesn’t help. It is a light beer, designed for thirst quenching, not savoring a good naturally flavored brew.

DarkSong (352) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUN 8, 2014
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.

Pours a golden yellow with a thin white head. Nice citrus aroma. The taste was like a light lemonade. Very refreshing beer.

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

HighlanderOne (1174) - 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.
