look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Produced a finger of head that managed to squeeze out some slightly lacing, even thought the head didn't retain. It's that clear slightly paler adjunct lager gold.
Smell: Hmm..nothing offensive but nothing special. Corn, barley, straw with a bit of a generic hop presence. Didn't need warming to come out but it's very mild and has a slight metallic twang.
Taste: It starts with a fairly generic mild corn and straw flavoured malt, but it makes up for it as the hops seem to make a slight appearance a bit early and add a touch of flavour that makes it stand out over most macro lagers. Has a slight honey taste to it as well.
Mouthfeel: That slight hop edge helps cleanse the pallet nicely and it doesn't stay around for very long but it is pleasant. It's a bit too flat in the carbonation department though.
Drinkability: Crisp, clean, smooth, easy going down and no problems keeping it down. That being said, that slight hop edge that saves so much of the beer for me, hampers it a little bit here.
Final Thought: Well, I had this after a night of skating and I downed it fairly quickly and easily, but the price wasn't quite what I wanted it to be for what it was. All in all, it's a slightly hoppier spin on the Macro Lager. I think Rolling Rock slightly pale might be a better name for it though. A surprising amount of flavour though for a 4.6% offering.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
