Porch Rocker, from Samuel Adams. Radler. 4.5% ABV.

A: Nice, solid goldenrod color. No head or lacing.

S: Hint of lime. Not much going on here.

T/MF: Decent lemon/lime zest flavor. Fairly crisp. Slightly acidic (though not quite tart or sour).

Okay, but no Stiegl or Schoferhoffer.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.

All I can say is one word, "Wow!" But I know to post something needs more than that...

Anyway, a dang good beer from Sam Adams. When they say it hits the spot on one of those hot summer nights, plenty here in F-L-A, I can tell you - it does. About the only thing I didn't like was its smell - the lemon scent didn't quite mix well with the hops. But other than that, it was fantastic. I was particularly impressed on the taste - crisp, refreshing, just the right hint of lemon mixing well with slight ale flavor. Definitely one of my new favs for Sam Adams.

It has a golden color with a half inch of foam. It has a slight lemonade smell to it. It has very slight lemon taste to it and is not over powering. It has a very fizzy mouth feel that doesn't really linger. Overall it is a good beer and is worth drinking on a hot summer day.
