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.

Rolling Rock "Extra Pale", huh? Extra Pale is an understatement. This beer is almost clear. Imagine the lightest straw colored beer you've ever seen, and this one does it one better. One shade lighter. One shade closer to pure transparency. Sometimes I'm not sure if the glass is full or empty.

I can't comment on any head as I've never seen one. Oh, that white fizzly shit on top that was gone within seconds? That's not a head. This is a pretty pathetic looking beer. At least the aroma isn't complete shit. Not only is it not complete shit, it's not really much of anything. Some cereal grains, a light pant of lager-type yeast, and a shot of stale, musty hops. Mmm'mm, Campbell's would be proud.

Carbonation attacks your tongue like the bubonic plague, muting pretty much all flavors at first. This might be some kind of sick, silver lining though, as the flavor of this beer probably isn't very great anyway. Grains, some moderate corn, lager crispiness, and again, another handful of the musty hops. Bitterness is low and this beer is drinkable, I'll give it that.

Not the worse AAL under the sun, and in all actuality, probably one of the better macros, in my opinion. This bitch is best served cold, ice cold, right at about 33 degrees F (that's about 0.56 degrees Celcius for you normal people). You might consider freezing this with a twig shoved through the center to make yourself a Rolling Rock lollipop.

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.
