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.

I cant find any signs of the base beer, just some slightly artificial lemony aromas. The mouth feel is fine, and the carb is good.mthe finish is quite sweet, with a big lemon drop finish. Not my thing, this is just juice.

Pours a bright orange-yellow with a one finger white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of lemons, corn flakes, light biscuit malts, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with a lemonade flavor upfront with some biscuit malts and light grassy hops in the background. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a deccent fruit beer that is a pretty nice refreshing, change of pace summer beer.

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.

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!

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.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Smooth, slightly creamy, moderate body, full-on lemon, light breadiness, herbal, mildly tart, lemonade.

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.

3.4
zach8270 (4021) - 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.
