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.

Light straw lemon color. Thin head with weak retention and a few, small lace spots.
Aroma ifs one dimensional with lots of lemon and weak grains. Flavor follows the nose. Lots of lemon, hint of citric, leafy hop. Light and smooth. Crisp flavor and finish in the end. Pretty refreshing. A solid session beer or for a hot summer's day.
