Porch Rocker is slightly darker than straw- colored brew with a nose of lemons and a slight head of foam that is quite impressive at first, but doesn’t last for long. There is some bread in the background, but the scent is mostly that of lemons.
With the taste, it’s more of the same- the flavor of lemons dominates. But there is also some pale malt and almost a ginger- ale component to the taste. And again, there is some bread character, but it is difficult to think of anything other than lemons as you consume.
Porch Rocker is a lemon- accented beer and it ranks as one of the least- bitter brews I have ever tasted. It certainly has some redeeming qualities as a summer beer, but it isn’t the type of taste I go for on a regular basis. I might try it again when the heat and humidity of summer are at a peak, but other than that, I will likely pass on this one more often than not. The sweetness and taste of lemons are not beer qualities I want in an everyday beer.
