12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a crystal clear gold with a one finger white head. Decent lacing and head retention.

Aroma is on the sweeter side with lots of lemon and a hint of tea. A little orange is in there too. Not much to let me know this is a beer.

Lemon/Iced tea on the flavor with more orange. A very tiny bit of malt in the background but it is faint. Sweet with some tartness from the lemon. Sticky mouthfeel with a slightly bitter finish.

Overall, a refreshing summer beer although the sweetness limits drinkability somewhat. i would get it again, though.

Porch Rocker pours a clear golden color, with a small lacing head. There is a hint of lemon citrus like note, but smells more like lemon pledge cleaning wipes. The taste however has a nice crisp malty backbone, with a nice strong lemonade like aftertaste. Nice blend of beer and lemonade like flavors, very easy to drink. Overall WOW, a very good refreshing beer that is perfect for a summers day.

A- clear golden amber with a thin fizzy quickly disappearing off white head! Expected though because of the citrus.

S- toasted grains, a bit of grassy hops, and a touch of lemon candy

T- nice lemony tartness throughout balanced by malt sweetness. Hop flavor is there but lacks bitterness. Not soapy at all.

MF- seems a bit light for the "helles" base beer but that's ok I guess. Highly carbonated and lemony burp inducing. Slightly filmy on the palate.

D- shandies, radlers, etc easily my least favorite style. At least this one has a decent base beer beneath it.
