Samuel Adams Porch Rocker Debuts In May

Samuel Adams Porch RockerSamuel Adams is currently in the process of brewing up a German style called “radler.”  The name radler translates to “cyclist,” A 50/50 (ish) blend of beer and lemonade. (Like a shandy).

Perfect for any summer day, Samuel Adams® Porch Rocker was inspired by traditional Bavarian Radlers that mix beer with German-style lemonade.  For our bright and citrusy Radler, we blended a Helles beer with lemon for a fresh-squeezed lemon taste, effervescent sweetness, and slightly tart, refreshing finish.  A light malt character and hint of hops balance out this summer brew.

Malts: 2 Row Harrington, Metcalfe, Copeland Pale
Yeast: Samuel Adams Lager

Availability: 12oz bottles
Arrival: May 2012. (Through July, 2012)

    This should be a good summer beer. It’s similar to the Russ (pronounced Rooss) made by blending 50/50 Hefeweizen and lemonade.
