I purchased this at Wegman's enjoyed chilled from the 12oz in a glass.
The color is crystal clear golden with thick white head that falls to a ring of small beads. The aroma has a slight citrus odor with sweet malt accent and light sprite-link aroma. The feel is decent yet still sweet with a moderate carbonation level stays sweet throughout with light acidity.
The flavor is more lemon soda than lager with a light lemonade-like sweet flavor with fizzy soda-like taste with mild malt flavor in the background with a slight yeast accent that accentuates the lemon soda sweetness toward the end giving more of a cooler-type flavor. This was not enjoyable as I expected. I have had other 'radler' type beer mixed bottles before that seemed like a better hybrid than this - I prefer something with more beer and less lemon soda in the taste.

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.
