Pours a brilliant light golden with copper accents and a foamy half inch white head that leaves minimal lacing.
Wheat, lemon zest, lemon juice, a bit of skunky hop, and grain form the aroma. Somewhat reminiscent of furniture polish.
Flavor is sweet and slightly malty throughout. Toasted malt provides respite from the initial lemon zest and sour lemon juice bite. There's a bit of grainy astringency at the finish.
Body is moderate, with carbonation a touch on the high side.
More malt flavor and sweetness than expected, but it delivers on the citrusy lemon promise. Grainy character is slightly offputting, and I would actually like the lemon character to linger more.

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.
