So, I was at a slot car race challenge (yes!) last weekend in the East Village, and they were serving $3 Becks and $2 Rolling Rocks. For the $2 value I thought I'd try the RR, I couldn't remember the last time I had it.
No glassware or plasticware at this function, poured out a dollop to all my dead homies in the bathroom sink to check the color (hey, gotta be as honest as possible, right?) Pretty pale yellow, exceedingly carbonated. Smelled like hoppy water.
Taste was actually fair, not my style but not as offensive as I feared it might be. Didn't really taste like much, honestly I would have guessed it was a pilsner. The type of beer I used to scrape change together to buy in 12-packs, but better than a 12-pack of Keystone-ilk for sure. Had an extremely fizzy mouthfeel with no aftertaste, I ended up putting down about 4 of these though while having a grand ol' time kicking a** on the 100' slot car track. I felt exactly the same when I left as when I walked in, so I'd rate this as somewhat drinkable, I guess. Either way, it fit the trailer-parkNASCAR atmosphere for the event.

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
