The bottled Rolling Rock really brings out the adjuct flavour and aroma ... very corny with a steely after taste. The run of the mill carboantion gives some crips refreshing character ... other than that this beer is quite bland. Very little in the hops department as well ... hint of alcohol in the finish shows again that it is a beer.

3.05/5 rDev +17.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 12oz green bottle with the painted 1939 label and a stamped packaged date. The painted back reads: From the glass lined tanks of Old Latrobe ... We tender this premium beer for your enjoyment, as a tribute to your good taste ... It comes from the mountain springs to you ... "33"
Appearance: Light golden with an active level of carbonation that forms a fine, semi-creamy white head, that sticks to the glass.
Smell: Light malt grains, soft floral hop aromas and corn (DMS).
Taste: Light bodied. Fizzy, seltzer-like carbonation. Malt flavour is thin, dry with a dextrin sweetness and husk tannins. Hops are tangy bitter/lemony, but only for a moment. Major cooked veggies/corn flavours are enhanced as the beer warms (more DMS). Finishes a tad dry, grainy with lingering vegatable flavours.
Notes: Latrobe has taken an off-flavour and enhanced it to the point of it becoming Rolling Rock's trademark aroma and flavour, DiMethyl Sulfide (DMS).
For what it is ... it is simply okay. Nothing overly special going on. Very light, easy to drink and extremely refreshing (when cold). Serve ice cold as this beer tends to get rather nasty and unpalatable when warm.

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
