A: amber/gold in a tall glass.

B: lemon/citrus.

T: lemon/citrus with very little carbonation.

M: Eh.

O: Whenever I get a bottle of Miller or InBev mass-produced beer, I typically add lemon or lime juice to make it palatable. SA Porch Rocker tastes pretty similar and goes down smooth on a hot day. Not offensive-tasting but not tasty either, just an easy-drinking beer that reminds me of light beer with lemon. Although I've never understood the point of the Germans taking good beer and diluting it with lemonade to create a Radler.

A- Pours a very clear golden yellow. Very little head though, and what little there is does not stay around for the tasting. Gentle continuous flow of carbonation bubble flowing up the side of the glass.

S- Depending on what kind of a beer guy (or gal) you are this is a smell you will either love it or hate it. Lemonade citrus. Some would say there is not place for that in a beer but I tell you what, I like it. It's refreshing to the senses and just brings a smile to your face as you imagine a summer evening watching the sun go down. Just relaxing.

T- Citrus floral notes with lemon zest. There is a bit of a metallic undertone to it.

M- good all around balance. easy to drink.

O- A bit lacking in the flavor but still enough to keep the relaxation in motion on a hot summer day. Sit back and drink em down. Can hold up enough to drink a couple.

Thought this would be a great beer like the summer ale for the summer. Everything is there but very lack luster. this is the only Sam Adams that is a pour and drain. Very disappointed in this beer in thinking this would go along with the summer ale for my summer beers
