Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip

L: Clear light golden pour. 1.5 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast with sparse lacing.

S: Lemonade... citrus and a bit of grain.

T/F: Follows the nose. Pretty standard Radler. Cracked grains and a strong lemonade/lemon soda flavor. Citrus... mildly sweet to go with the tartness. Well carbonated... refreshing and pleasant.

O: It's summertime.... it's hot... and this hit the spot reasonably well. Nothing exciting, but a decent lawnmower beer.

Great, great beer. A sweeter ale with a crisp and refreshing lemony taste.

Porch Rocker is my favorite beer from Sam Adams followed closely by Cherry Wheat and Cold Snap. It pours a clear deep gold color with small white head and no lacing. Has a lemon smell and taste that is great on a hot day very refreshing. Smooth swallow and only a lemon aftertaste. This is a GREAT summertime beer.

Aroma, lemon,tangerines. Appearance, clear orange, No head. Taste was sticky orange lemon tangerine. Some hops, but mostly a light summer beer, though the overly sweet taste made it less refreshing than advertised. Feel, flat, thick for a lighter beer. Drinkable, but low on the totem pole of summer fruit beers.
