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.

JMerritt (1776) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a rather large, frothy off-white head that is long lasting. Aroma is pure, sugary-sweet lemon Kool-Ade. Sweet lemondrop flavor with very little sourness and a light wheat tang in the finish. Moderately carbonated. A refreshing beer, though it really just leaves me wanting a nice, uncarbonated iced lemonade. It is what it is.

Shandy coming at ya hot. Watered Dow beer and lemonade. Cracker corn malts and sweet lemon syrup added. Overall I guess it’s drinkable but it’s not good.

jcnielsen (2006) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a golden color with white head. Mostly lemonade aroma. Lemonade, tangy, tart flavors. A touch syrupy. I’m not a fan of radlers, but I could see this as something that would appeal to non-beer drinker types.

Being a fan of both beer and lemonade this beer caught my attention. I was hesitant because I’m a dark beer fan. If I can see my fingers on the other side of the glass it’s to light. Dark beer on a hot summer day is not the best option. However, this beer will be one that I buy during the summer months. Good job Mr. Adems!

Strangebrewer (837) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
bottle. Poured clear with a big white head. Sweet grainy malt aroma. Light silky mouthfeel, refreshing. Flavour of candied lemons and bready malts.

dliberto (141) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Smells like a lemon lime soda. Taste is more like magnesium sulfate lemon lime flavor (you know that nasty laxative). Medium bodied medium carbonation. Not a desirable beer.

exeter (261) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Smooth, slightly creamy, moderate body, full-on lemon, light breadiness, herbal, mildly tart, lemonade.

bellco33 (277) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from bottle into pint glass: Pours Yellow with a white head. Aroma of lemons and skunk ass. Taste is mildly tart lemon, sugar, and shitty lager. It has that same sucking on a coin flavor as all Sam Adams beers. Light body, heavy carbonation, this is gross.

zach8270 (3387) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2014
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear orange with a white head. Subtle but almost sweet lemon and wheat aroma. Some good tartness but mainly sweet. Flavor is a nice tart lemonade, not too sweet, and mixed with a dry and grassy wheat backbone.

eaglefan538 (2865) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 8, 2014
From the bottle. Aroma of lemons and faint grains. Flavor followed with even a cola element seemingly mixed in there. Mouthfeel was fully carbonated, somewhat refreshing for a hot sunny day. Unfortunately, the abv is too high to be what it is indended to be. You’re supposed to cut a 4.5 or 5% with the lemonade to keep this a refreshing and semi-hydrating (or non dehydrating) at least) beer.

Nice citrus aroma, comes off a bit sweet. Nice golden color when poured. Taste of slight citrus and hops not to strong. Nice over all palate, doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste.
