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.

Pours a light yellow post night of drinking pee color. Can definitely taste the lemonade which I’m not huge fan of but would be a good mid summer refreshing beer to wash lunch down with.

Aroma is citrus, orange, grapefruit, coriander and slight sulphur. Taste is very light maltiness with slight citrus and grapefruit notes. Very pale bitterness, well balanced overall. Appearance is a clear straw/gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

OMG, the worst Sam Adams ever -- they won’t be featuring this one on the TV and radio ads

Bright amber. Minimal head. Fresh lemon scent. Refreshing beery beveridge. Lemony. I guess it depends on your fruit likes. More beer and less silly than Beerita.

"This is the kind of beer that maybe I enjoyed a little more than the score would indicate, but I can’t see giving any aspect an 8. Liked the lemony fresh aroma, light fizzy feel, and fruity slightly tart flavor. This is simple and light, but refreshing and exactly what Id want when watching a summer baseball game. 2nd time not a charm. Medicinal lemon."

Alcoholic carbonated lemonade. Real lemon flavor and somewhat refreshing, but beer it ain’t. Homemade lemonade is better.

This Porch Rocker . . . is really good!! It had a great look when I poured it into a pint glass. the aroma was inviting but not overwhelming. the big hook was the taste. This beer was truly meant for summer. it was an excellent pour that was matched by its flavor. it had a great fruity zip that was a perfect match for summer. the color was a perfect golden yellow. this is now on my list for summer enjoyment.

Pretty good shandy flavor, if a tad weak. Of course aroma and taste consist of lemonade and light beer. Decent, and refreshing, but far surpassed by Boulevard’s radler.
