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.

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
