Clear, pale gold pour with a thin, creamy, eggshell head that has poor retention despite a very high effervescence. Aroma of sweet lemonade, light toast and sweet, fruity Fruit Loops and floral notes. The flavor is not nearly as bright and fruity as the aroma, Fruit Loops, floury grain, doughy yeast and a lingering lemon oil finish. Lightish somewhat slick palate with a light, soft and blanketing carbonation. Not to bad as far as Shandys/Radlers go, but they are definitely not my thing. Could have been a little drier and more carbonated.
Purchased at the Bull Run Tap House. Refreshing. Lemony. Thirst quenching. Sweet. Wouldn't purchase a case but not bad on a hot summer day.

B. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Not as good as Summer Shandy, but light and refreshing oobawa (1299) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2017
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. TheLouse8 (19) - Nebraska, USA - MAY 29, 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.

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. p0rkch0p (116) - Missouri, USA - MAY 7, 2017
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 (874) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Aroma is lemon. Taste is a carbonated lemonade, but not too overpowering. Overall surprisingly OK. Cybercat (5737) - 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.

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.
