Nice, light, bubbly, some white head, yellow colored. Looks appetizing...
Smells lemony, but not like a detergent or cleaner (which you run into sometimes). It's balanced by a light, wheaty scent lingering just behind it. It's nice.
Tastes a little too sweet, a little too lemony (like lemonade). I can see how it would be refreshing on a hot afternoon, maybe rocking on a porch swing, but it's not for me while I'm in a mood for beer.
Excellent mouthfeel, as is standard for The BBC. It's full-bodied and creamy, yet light. The aftertaste is a little too sweet though. Almost sticky.
This is a decent selection, and might be a nice choice to introduce a non-beer drinker to craft beer (or at least micro-brews, if The BBC is still that).

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.
LOOK: Bight and clear golden hue, sufficient lacing that lasts the duration
SMELL: Lemon juice, citric zest, faintly nutty, crackers, lemon oil
TASTE: Smooth, slightly creamy, moderate body, full-on lemon, light breadiness, herbal, mildly tart, lemonade, quick to aftertaste
Not much depth and does not pop like a Radler does obviously due to this being pretty much a full on beer. Perhaps if the body with lightened up a bit and a crisper carbonation this would be great.

Absolutely one of the best beers I have ever had by Sam Adams. Can definitely drink this all day every day. Taste is outstanding and the aroma is overall exceptional. Perfect for a hot summer day sitting on your porch...just as the name suggests. Overall a perfect beer. Top notch panty dropper

Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass
Appearance: 3/4 inch head, clear, bright yellow in color, moderate carbonation
Smell: big time lemon juice and slightly sweeter lemonade
Taste: toasted malt, light hops, and big time lemons and lemonade
Mouthfeel: light body, slightly sweet with a touch of bitterness, high carbonation
Overall: Almost like they took a watered down Boston Lager and spiced it with a bunch of lemonade. Some of the taste is full out lemon sugar drink, but there is easily enough beer in there. I could have several in a row, but could not see myself stocking this as an everyday beer.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is very heavy on the lemon with some wheat notes thrown in. The flavor is similar. This tastes more like lemonade than it does a beer, but there is a little bit of wheat and biscuit malt to make it somewhat beer like. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not much to like here, but I guess it tastes about like what the brewery was going for.
