The last brew from the Sam Adams Sips of Summer box, this is the Lemon Radler. Radlers are named for cyclists (German) and is usually a 50/50 mix of Lager and Fruit Soda. This one says lemon juice so maybe more a corona-esque take but we'll see if she's up to snuff.
Running 4.5 ABV the IBUs are 8 and the SRM is a 6.
On the nose she is heavy on the lemon with not real beer aroma, no surprise there. The initial hit is lemony and slightly tart with a good mouth fill. She's thin and very fast thru the middle with the lemon oils making her a dirty girl. She finishes surprisingly crisp and dirty on the back end. Not a bad brew but I'm not much of a fan of the style.
Thanks for coming by and popping a cold one with me.

*sorry folks, this should be a blooper reel. It was hot and I banged out a couple before the shoot. Mea Culpa
Samuel Adams Porch Rocker is their take on the radler, a style referring to the brew cyclists would consume. Usually a nice lager cut w a fruit soda or lemonade. This particular one is very heavy on the lemon so fore warned is fore armed as it were.
The nose is lemony and pleasantly so. The initial hit is lemony and tart with a super fast middle and the back end isn't particularly clean. My guess would be the lemon oil coating the palate in much the same way too much hop oil makes for a dirty finish.
This isn't a horrible brew but it is too overly lemony for my tastes.
