Poured from a 12oz can into a thin walled tumbler.
L - Hazy Yellow with a thin white head and large bubbles slowly streaming up from the bottom of the glass.
S - Slightly malty, with a musty citrus smell.
T - More of the same.
F - pretty much what you'd expect. Light bodied with medium carbonation.
O - Not really a big fan. I'm sure this beer was part of the Sam Adams Summer Collection. It's not the worst thing, but I'd never buy it on it own and its usually the last of the Summer Sampler to be drunk at my house.

Lemon verbena, floral, lime sherbet and grains of paradise. Wheat and grain malt. Medium bodied. Smooth. Easy drinking and fairly artificial tasting. Not that good.

It pours a light straw yellow with a white head that leaves rapidly. The smell is a lemon tart with some grainy smell also. The taste is very much lemons with a tartness that changes to a mild sweet flavor ( kinda of odd sweetness). The body is light and easy to drink. Overall a ok drink just not sure what it was going for.

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.

Pours a clear orange color with a white head a little less than a finger thick. Head faded away rapidly. Smells of lemon, tart, a little grain. Taste is tart up front then fades to sweeter grain. Taste of lemon throughout. Light body and fairly clean finish. It's fine, nothing spectacular but a nice summer beer.

Overly citrus to the point of a sour stomach feel. Also very sweet in an attempt to combat the tart. Underlying tones solidly malty but is lost in the mix. Not worth a 6 pack.

Was not a fan. Odd flavors, overly sweet. Not really sure what's going on with this one. I don't care for their Summer Ale but I'd take that over Porch Rocker. I don't think I'll be having this again.
