Availability: Year-round

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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle with twist-off cap poured into pint glass. This was free at a friend's house, so there was really no way to turn it down.

Appearance: Typical appearance of an adjunct lager - clear blonde/golden with a thin, soapy bone white head which faded to nearly nothing almost immediately. Only left lacing in sheets and spots if I took huge gulps, but otherwise it was next to nothing. Overly active carbonation rises to the top of the glass, but little in the way of head retention.

Aroma: Sort of like any other adjunct lager, but a bit more "steely," I guess. Faint aroma overall. Earthy corn husk with slight hints of sweet malt and just a touch of generic grassy hops. Some metallic notes linger in the background, and that frightens me a little bit.

Taste: This beer doesn't give off much taste, honestly. It's so watery that you have to really search for the flavors. Corn and hints of malt hit the tongue first, and this quickly gives way to an offputting finish of aluminum and some grassy hops. Underwhelming, but I wasn't expecting much. Sort of a typical American lager taste, but not as nearly as good as something like PBR. Smooth, but only because it's so generic and almost absent in taste.

Mouthfeel: Probably the highlight of this beer. It's clearly designed to be a smooth, easy-drinking party beer. Light and bubbly in the mouth with active carbonation provided a snappy and dry finish. Very watery, but palatable. It leaves a really sickly grainy sensation in the aftertaste, but that's about the only negative.

Drinkability: It's about average. I wouldn't turn it down if I was at a gathering and there was nothing left, but I definitely wouldn't go after this on a regular. Watery enough to drink a lot of, and just enough lack of flavor to not phase you in a negative way.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Overall, for a massed produced beer, this "extra pale" is not that bad. Drinking after something awesome like an aamazing IPA or such, it doesn't seem that great. But compared to your Buds, Millers and such, this is a real nice beer. Aroma is not the greatest, do I detect a hint of skunkiness?. Overall, the taste is slightly crisp but does have a little more lingering aftertatste than I prefer with this type of beer. A good "go to" above average "average" beer

I do not remember when I had this beer but this beer was okay. It was not my favorite beer that I have had. The smell was okay, and the taste was okay. This was not my favorite beer that I have had. But I am glad that I tried it. The aroma of this beer was ok, but like I said this was not my favorite beer.
