Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Rolling Rock. Who can forget the jewel green bottles and the horse on the front with the eloquent speech on the back containing 33 words? I truly wish this beer got more love here but I can understand why it doesn't. It's not everyone's cup of ...er, beer. I'll conclude the intro by saying it is one of my personal favorites. On a hot day or just a relaxing-after-work situation, Rolling Rock is hard to beat. I honestly mean that.

Appearance - not pouring this one but if I remember correctly the head isn't very impressive and recedes rapidly.

Smell - Cantaloupe, sweet corn, sweetened cereal. With a touch of sourness. Dash of harvest wheat.

Taste - A mellow, lightly sour, yet spicy flavor that bites nicely and leaves you feeling satisfied. A body of corn sweetness envelopes the flavors and wraps it up in a gift horse for your tongue. Spicy notes leave a dry flavor on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Carbonated, but full bodied and smooth. Dry finish. Lots of burps.

Overall - Rolling Rock is a tasty treat at a perfect price. Rolling Rock, like revenge - is a dish best served cold. Ice cold. As the beer begins to warm, you really start to smell and taste the off-notes and imperfections. And at that point, it's a drain pour. Rolling Rock is best enjoyed within 5 minutes of cracking the cap. And I don't think I'd want to drink it out of a glass or a can. Green bottles for me, please. And for $9.47 a 12 pack at your local wally world - who can argue. I can enjoy a craft just as much as the next guy, but for an every man's beer, Rolling Rock is a step above the crowd. It is what it is. A great beer for the working man.

my very first beer, handed down from my grandfather. I swear this runs through is veins...as long as I can remember, hardly ever saw him without one in his hand. always remember him sitting out late at night on his porch, drinking and as he would say, "counting his blessings." a beer that has sentimental value which puts it up there for me. love that green bottle! in my eyes, the drink of a hard working family man.

24 oz can poured into a lager glass.

A - Straw. Decent white head gives way to nice lacing. Good retention.

S - Not much there. Faint corn and apple.

T - Sweet malt with a little hop action. Very crisp with a proper amount of carbonation. Finishes clean and sweet with faint corn/apple taste.

M - Light

O - One of my top five AAL. It's an unabashedly delightful and delicious brew. Go get some!

Having been unimpressed by this beer in the past, it had been years since I had tried it. A friend brought a bunch over to my place in those classic green bottles, and I had to try one.
There's not a lot of flavor here, but what is there is a very clean and refreshing. Very light, and has the potential to be a great summer beer if it's on sale. Otherwise there are others from the style I'd take over this. I think what's best about this beer is not what it is, but rather what it isn't. That is, it's not harsh, funky, or metallic like some AALs, which in some ways is endorsement enough.

Ah, the old days when Rolling Rock was like a gourmet beer...something rare...something to actively seek out. Found a sixer of these at Harry's in Marietta for $4.99 and decided to trip and fall down memory lane.

Appearance 2.25: Wow, this is indeed a "Pale Ale." Looks like watered-down apple juice. No head. No lacing. It's just there. It does kind of look beer-esque, though.

Smell 3.0: Bouquet is actually OK. Hints of grains and the classic lager phenols.

Taste 3.0: Front is missing. Nothing there, taste-wise. Middle is somewhat sweet, with heavy carbonation interrupting any deeper taste that might have been present. Finish is smooth, with a very light taste of malt, but that's it. Aftertaste is where some brief hints of corn pop up along with some brief hints of grains, before it all fades away.

Mouthfeel 2.5: Too much carbonation and it interferes with the taste of the beer.

Overall 3.0: In spite of this beer's many faults, it is still OK. Nothing fantastic, just a basic lagery, bubbly, malt beverage to quench your thirst or wash down some pizza or wings. If you can get it cheap in the summer, it is a great lawnmower beer. Still, if you pay over five bucks for a sixer of these, get your head examined. Again, this beer is not bad, it just is not that good. A classic and an OK beer.

Had some Rolling Rock for the first time in quite sometime yesterday on the golf course. It was a warmer day and the beer tasted good to me. If this was middle of winter I might rate lower....but it hit the spot. Just drink it when it is warm outside.
