Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-02-2001

Using a time-honored recipe with only the finest malted barley and blend of hops, Rolling Rock is a classic American lager that is as well-known for its distinctive, full-bodied taste as it is for its craftsmanship, heritage and painted green bottle.

Full-flavored, with a subtle bite. Light-to-medium body and color. Brewed with only the choicest ingredients; a perfect blend of pale barley malt, rice and corn.

Skunky smell - quite tasteless. Nothing to write home about. My go to if I want an old man beer. However, I would buy this over bud light any day of the week.

Tastes of adjuncts. Corn and rice, lingering artificial sweetness that leaves an unappealing aftertaste. Very light and a bit watery. Not something I need again.

If I'm looking for a beer, I'm almost never looking for a Rolling Rock. However, its somehow crisp and refreshing, although I've wondered if it gets its only flavor from the green bottle mild-skunkiness syndrome.

Quick review. The basics: water-light, slick, skunky nose, general lack of interesting flavor (zero identifiable hop)...& yet I still have a soft spot for this brew. The goofy carb & cheapo malt components just speak to me, I guess.

First review honors to a beer I've bought plenty of bottles, cans, and pints of. I'm a fan of green-bottled skunky beers, and while this one isn't as strong in scent, it goes down smooth and is best ice cold for those hot summer days. Obviously not a high-class, complex brew. It came from small town Latrobe after all. But damn if it's not a guilty pleasure. It's a beer my pops drank, so like father, like son I guess. Cheers.

Smells bad. Only drinkable if extremely cold.

I hate to say it, but it's a guilty pleasure! It's gotta be REAL cold though! Btter than any Bud product out there.

Pours a clear, pale yellow. Too watery in appearance. Head very white, fluffy and quickly gone. Smells heavily of adjuncts, but malty-sweet. Tastes of corn, walnuts, pencil shavings, esters, and honey. Smoother, wetter, fuller-bodied, but less carbonated than a Miller High Life. Also, less hopped. Could be refreshing on a hot day. Not nasty, but nothing special.

This is a light, easy, and refreshing beer. Not sure why they chose to do the green bottle, but it's made their bottle recognizable. This is an easy drinking beer that doesn't blow your mind, but it's not awful.

A very crisp, light beer. I'm guessing all the bad reviews are from people who want a bold, slap-in-the-face taste to their beer. Sometimes you drink beer just to get a buzz. If that's what you're after, you could do way worse than rolling rock. I would rank beers like bud light, Coors light, michelob light, nattie light, etc below rolling rock.

Not the worst beer i ever had, there are WAY worse. But really nothing special, it smells like glass, which is weird because on the bottle it states that it comes from "the glass lined tanks of old Latrobe" - the power of suggestion perhaps? Overall, i like it but certainly do not love it

Very pale, light straw colored body; fluffy, fizzy white head. Grassy, steely aroma. Light, dull hint of grains; very subdued hop bitterness. Light, crisp mouthfeel; watery.

A most forgettable ale. Where's the flavor and feel? There is so little depth and character that it's difficult to see why this beer is still made. One is better off with a Budweiser or a nice glass of ice water. Well, my wife goes for this...and I use to settle for this a few decades ago, but I see little reason to go for this beer if other macro American adjuncts are available...

There's really nothing good nor bad about the beer except for the price, which, IMO, makes it one of the best beers for the buck you can get. It's nothing fancy, has no good taste nor bad, no good smell nor bad, and gives you a decent buzz which doesn't hang around with any nasty headaches. So when I can get an 18 pack for 12 bucks it's hard to find a reason not to when funds are tight. It's no Aventinus, but I can get 2.5 bottles of Aventinus for the price of an 18 pack of Rolling Rock. One is an everyday drinker, the other is a weekend brew. Both have merit.

"Outlier detected. Justify rating with a review."

Really? Okay. This beer has less flavor than any other beer I've ever had. Is that justification enough? SMH.
