A good balance of tart and smooth. Citrus up front that is carried through with a grainy backbone.

Taste Rating in Words: The plot of a well balanced one tone movie, The story is pretty straight forward and doesn't sidetrack much.

Absolutely one of the best beers I have ever had by Sam Adams. Can definitely drink this all day every day. Taste is outstanding and the aroma is overall exceptional. Perfect for a hot summer day sitting on your porch...just as the name suggests. Overall a perfect beer. Top notch panty dropper

This is probably my favorite summer beer. Tart and refreshing with lemon but the lemon flavor is not overpowering. A perfect beer after some yard work or working outside.

Now I know this isn't the most prestigious beer in the world but it definitely deserves a try and more!
Just so you know what to expect, it tastes of beer and lemons/lemonade. The lemon/lemonade factor comes in very strong, it almost tastes as if it's half lemonade half beer. It's definitely a summer beer and it's definitely what I'll be drinking again once summer comes back around. Definitely try it, there's nothing better to taste after a long hot day, TRUST ME! It's one of the best beers I've ever tasted and I've tasted many micro brews.

Purchased as part of the mixed 12 pack. Brewed with "Samuel Adams two-row pale malt blend". Hopped with Tettnang Tettnanger. Fermented with a lager strain, then mixed with lemonade.
6 SRM, 4.5% ABV, 8 IBU's, 161 kcal/12oz

Pours out to a brilliant medium golden, forming a tall whipped white head with superior retention and beautiful lacing, no part in thanks to it's brisk carbonation, ~3.25 carbs or so. The nose is forward with lemon, with some zest component. Cleanly fermented, no off-aromas. The taste is great...the lemonade opens, but then is followed by grainy malt, which is nicely balanced and adds a complexity that makes the beer more than just a lemon-flavored beer. The hops are very mild. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing with a light body, but it's not too watery. In addition to the mild hop bitterness, there is a pleasant lemon peel bitterness to it as well which lingers in the aftertaste.

I'm really digging this one. and am pleasantly surprised. It's tough to pull off a beer like this that isn't one dimensional and unbalanced. I would definitely buy it again. A perfect beach beer, and because of the lower alcohol, something that won't ruin your day as you enjoy it.
