Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "best before date" December 2014.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear golden color with a one finger white head that dissipated slowly until a thin broken layer of bubbles remained, a higher amount of carbonation with moderate lacing on the glass.

SMELL: bread and citrus.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, sweet bubbly lemon, no hop profile that I can detect, more like a soft drink than a beer.

PALATE: lighter body with higher carbonation.

OVERALL: this is the second Radler style beer I've tried, I enjoyed this beer, it would appeal to people who do not normally like beer because it tastes like a soft drink, the modest 4.5% ABV means you can enjoy more than one. I would not drink this often but it's a good beach party beer.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear golden color

TASTE: Of course this is Sam Adams version of Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. It tastes like beer with a nice touch of lemon flavor. If you are a Summer Shandy fan stick with it. If Summer Shandy doesn't have enough of a beer taste, go with Porch Rocker.

OVERALL: I enjoyed this beer. Good Summer beer. It's a good beach beer.
