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.

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!

Easy drinking with no taste whatsoever, I found Rolling Rock to be quite overrated and honestly it's a beer that should be avoided. On tap it pours a light yellow, the taste is non existent and it is a smooth finishing brew with a very light of water.

Serving type: on-tap
