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.

The best "shandy" style beer on the market by far. Fresh lemonade and malts on the nose. Tastes like legit lemonade with beer not beer "with natural lemon flavor added." I was really impressed. I know a lot of beer snobs like to hate on fruit beers but this was an impressive brew that was very refreshing and well made. Don’t be a snob and step outside the urge to hate on fruit beer and you’ll see for yourself. This beer was delicious.

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

Bottle. A- Lemons, grains, corn. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Lemonade, sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, sweet finish. O- A nice shandy. Probably one of the better one out there. Very refreshing and not too sweet or tart. A solid beer that’s not too overbearing or artificial tasting.

Yes, I know the word out there is that this one’s basically the same as Leinenkugel’s Shandy. So what? No one said this brew was supposed to be earth-shatteringly new. It’s just Sam’s take on a radler. That being said, this one is a very good for a warm late spring or summer afternoon or evening. This isn’t boozy, but it’s not a binge drinking beer. This is one to sit, well, on the porch and enjoy. Lemony and just a tad sweet, but barely. Very refreshing.

Not sure why so many are dumping on this, I was pretty surprised on my 1st try. Lemon aroma, but it wasn’t as overpowering on taste as the smell would indicate. Pretty thin and easy to drink, like Cherry Wheat. Def. gonna try it again soon.

Drank from a 12oz. bottle. This is a refreshingly delish beer. Love the lemony taste and after taste!

Great if you want a beer with a lemonade taste- which during the summer I thought was perfect. Not an everyday beer for me, but still very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is summer in a bottle. It’s exactly what it says it is - a beer with natural lemon added. Unlike another mass produced shandy that will go unnamed in this post, the lemon tastes authentic and not forced into the beer. For what this is supposed to be, it’s excellent. Don’t over analyze it, just sit back and enjoy it.
