Game Day Beer Review: Boston Beer Porch Rocker Fruit Ale

Boston Beer's Porch Rocker pours a clear-as-a-bell orangish gold color with a thin white head that quickly dissipates.

It smells of a combination of hops and a bright lemon scent. On tasting the beer, it starts out sweetish  but finishes moderately off-dry. The malt flavor is recognizable, as is the lemon. Its nowhere near as sweet as the shandies being turned out by some competitors -- namely Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. Porch Rocker still tastes like a beer.

It's effervescent on the tongue and medium bodied. Sam has produced a beer that is eminently sessionable for the dog days of summer. B
