American Adjunct Lager |  4.60% ABV

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.

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.

This was beer of choice as a young adult and college student, it just had a great taste and was a good beer to chill out and relax with, though it does leave you with a terrible hangover. The quality and taste did change when AB-InBev bought out Rolling Rock and moved production out of Pennsylvania. It pours real pale yellow, with a soapy head the dissolves quickly, and sparkles with carbonation. You get a mineral watery, malty taste, that is finished with a sweet taste. There is a malt aftertaste, no edge, light in body, and not filling. Good with food, working, and fishing.

I don't know if you guys know this but, Old bay crabs and a rolling rock go together like peanut butter and jelly

Also Nothing beats drinking some ponies at the beach. 7 ice cold ounces. Drink it before it gets warm on a hot summer day.

Rolling rock was my first beer I ever had so I gotta rep

I'm more of a IPA guy but I like to drink some rocks

I grew up in NY in the 1960's. And when I became of drinking age I had friends in western PA that I would visit often. Our sit on the porch and talk forever beer was Rolling Rock. I enjoyed the brisk, light flavor that really tasted of clear stream water. Until today, I had my last Rolling Rock around 2002 when it was still made in PA.

Just bought a 6 pack of the St. Louis Anhauser Busch Rolling Rock. This ain't the same beer of my youth. This beer is sudsy, tastes of mildewed hay. Tastes like a lightweight Schlitz. Terrible.

I live in Santa Rosa, CA now. Glad to have Russian River Brewing down the street form my house.
