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

Purchased as part of the mixed 12 pack. Brewed with "Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend". Hopped with Tettnang Tettnanger. Fermented with a lager strain, then mixed with lemonade.
6 SRM, 4.5% ABV, 8 IBU's, 161 kcal/12oz

Pours out to a brilliant medium golden, forming a tall whipped white head with superior retention and beautiful lacing, no part in thanks to it's brisk carbonation, ~3.25 carbs or so. The nose is forward with lemon, with some zest component. Cleanly fermented, no off-aromas. The taste is great...the lemonade opens, but then is followed by grainy malt, which is nicely balanced and adds a complexity that makes the beer more than just a lemon-flavored beer. The hops are very mild. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with a light body, but it's not too watery. In addition to the mild hop bitterness, there is a pleasant lemon peel bitterness to it as well which lingers in the aftertaste.

I'm really digging this one. and am pleasantly surprised. It's tough to pull off a beer like this that isn't one dimensional and unbalanced. I would definitely buy it again. A perfect beach beer, and because of the lower alcohol, something that won't ruin your day as you enjoy it.

Sam Adams "Porch Rocker" is a GR8 Choice for a super hot,Hazy,Humid, Summer Day,Ultra Refreshing,with a zesty Lemon kick,and a drinkabilty Factor that is quite Honestly Through the Roof,perhaps more of a full on Beer than most Radler's tend to be,..but I myself like that,a very,VERY well crafted Brew with plenty of carbonation and well off the beaten track,I will be drinking a LOT of this Beer this Summer~gr8 stuff! Cheers.

Lemon-tinged beers can be a hit or miss for me. I've had some that were really good & some that tasted like vomit. This one by Sam Adams, thankfully, falls on the "good" side.

The look after poring was quite light, and I guess given this kind of beer this is appropriate.

The Smell was wonderful. Very lemony and inviting.

The taste was crisp, fruity, and well-balanced. By well-balanced I mean the lemon did not completely drown out the subtle hoppiness and alcohol.

A very good summer beer!
