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.

Ugh. Mediocre lager mixed with bad canned diet lemonade. Didn’t expect a radler from Sam Adams to taste this artificial. Sickly sweet. Smells bearable but it’s a lie. Avoid.

seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Poured from 12oz bottle into tulip glass, a clear golden amber colour with no foam, just a ring of tiny bubbles. Mass-produced lager plus some lemon bite. Slightly metallic and astringent, but not deeply flawed. No real hop presence. Light body, strong carbonation, citrusy aftertaste. Served cold, it’s definitely refreshing on a hot day.

OnTheTrail (593) - Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2017
Pours clear medium gold, light head. Aroma is strong natural lemon. Taste is slightly sweet malt, lemon soda, hops peaking through here and there. Some tartness, but not overwhelming. Light mouthfeel. Very refreshing after a warm bike ride. Does what the style should do.

Pour is clear golden. Taste is overpowering powdery artificial lemon. The most disappointing sam adams i have tried. Expected better. A better version of this style is Boulevards radler

LetsGoState (912) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Aroma is lemon. Taste is a carbonated lemonade, but not too overpowering. Overall surprisingly OK.

Cybercat (6219) - Georgia, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Pours clear, bubbly straw yellow with a thick and frothy, though not long-lasting, snow-white head. Aroma delivers a strong lemonade tone with a malty underpinning. This says "Summer" out loud. Tart flavor offers lemonade and malty notes, pleasing and refreshing. Mouthfeel features wan body and fizz, more lemonade than beer, but still this will either take the edge off a broiling day or bring a little summer into a chilly one.

AirForceHops (7900) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 1, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Best before NOV ticked on the side of label. Slightly hazy golden color. Aroma is artificial lemonade. Even for a radler, this is not easy to drink. Heavy on the lemonade and reminds me of a Country Time lemonade powder mix with a shot of a bad blonde ale. Pretty gross overall. To be fair, I hate radlers to begin with and this doesn’t help my opinion of them.

Imagine what a port-a-potty urinal scent cake would taste like.... Get that in your head and then try this beer. You won’t make it past the first sip.

This is terrible. I’m not even opposed to the style, this is just badly done. Smells and tastes like lemon scented cleaner.

I had it from the bottle. The aroma is lemonade. The taste is lemon and ginger. When cold, it was refreshing and crisp enough. Their summer beers always seem to have a heaviness to them. It was decent though.
