3.5/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A- Clear golden body with nice carbonation, but no head.

A- Beer + Lemonade smell. Pretty typical smell for a radler.

T- Sweet tart lemon flavors with a light beer backing. The lemonade dominates and the lager is so light and in the background. If the base beer was a bit heavier it might be more noticeable.

M- Light body, but the sugar makes it hang around in your mouth. Carbonation is medium to low, similar to if you mixed your own.

D- It's enjoyable, but I'd prefer to mix my own radler and make it as beer heavy as I prefer. I also typically mix radlers using american wheat beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Bright shiny gold body, topped by a billowing pure white rocky foam head. Plenty of stretchy lace.

Pleasant lemon aroma.

Taste is soft light sweet malt body, mild noble hops, and a shot of lemonade.

Light soft mouthfeel.

Not bad on a hot summer afternoon.

I just poured my first Sapooro down my drain, and opened this hoping it would take that horrid taste out of my mouth. It certainly did! This beer is WONDERFUL! . I can definitely taste lemons, which is something that's not found in many beers. After my taste buds got over the shock, I must say Its one of the best I've had. I poured it from a bottle into a British pint glass. It has a small white head that faded quickly but has left some lacing. The color is clear amber. This beer is perfect after a day in the sun. I highly recommend that you try Porch Rocker!

3.31/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: poured into a pint glass to a clear pale gold topped by a finger of dense white head with some lacing and low retention.
S: smells of lemon lime soda and a little malt
T: taste is a lot of lemon with a little malt flavor and the swallow is more tart lemon with a little maltyness on the finish.
M: this beer is pretty light on the mouth with plenty of slightly prickly carbonation and a refreshing finish
O: Not bad, the lemon almost seems forced and instead of being more nuanced and playing a supporting role it is more the star of the show. It isn't terrible but it could be better.
