Samuel Adams "Porch Rocker"
Boston Beer Company - Boston, Massachusetts USA
Bavarian Radler (ABV 4.5%) (IBU 8 )

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 2.7/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 5/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 9/20

The pour was a clear golden straw yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished very quickly, down to a light scattered film with a small collar and had poor spotty lacing.

The aroma was of citrus (lemon) right up front with a mild grain malt and a sweet yeast and had a hint of candi sugar.

The taste was very sweet and somewhat citrusy with a slight lemonade and sugar flavor running throughout. The flavor lasted only a short while after the swallow with a light lemony sugar taste fading away quickly.

Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a strong medium carbonation.

Overall I was not impressed at all with this brew, it was more like lemon flavored seltzer water than a beer...
