Had this out of a make your own 6 pack on 7/2/13 I picked it up because I have been really hitting the summer beers hard and the description on the bottle with the lemon ingredients mixed with a lager seemed right up my alley. I thought it might taste a little like Leinie Summer Shandy
Initial smell is very good can smell the lemon but not over powering, but enough to make that the dominant smell.
The first taste I didn't get any lemon it just tasted like your standard beer. The second sip I found it kinda lingering in the after taste, and it grew a little stronger with every sip. It has a different taste than Summer Shandy from Leinie but it is not bad. Leinie has a dominant lemon taste throughout the beer and is lighter this definetly favors the lager more than the lemon taste but it is enough to notice.
The beer was smooth with some after taste of mostly lemon but overall this was a solid beer that I would have again. I prefer the Summer shandy from Leinie but this is a good one as well.

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.
