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.

This is the beer that I drank by the case in college. In fact I used to go down to the Riverdeck in Manayunk and try to trink more than my friends during the hour and a half that was happy hour--my record was 13. Recently I bought a case of ponys--7oz bottles to remind me of the good old days.
This beer is barely drinkable--smells of corn, tastes of corn and finishes as a can of corn. I can't beleive that I drank this beer in such quantities back in the day. Clearly my taste in beer has changed!

Poured from 12oz. bottle into pint glass. Taken from notes.

I am reviewing this beer for what it is - an adjunct lager - compared to other adjunct lagers, and not in comparison to craft beer. Bear in mind that this is thus being graded on a curve.

A: Pale straw yellow, lightly golden. Looks like your typical adjunct beer. A finger of snow white head rises and quickly dissipates like soda and fake carbonation.

S: Not much to say here. Maybe rice, maybe corn, hard to say. A good whiff of this non aromatic beer probably won't answer too many questions. I'm leaning toward corn.

T: Better than your average adjunct. Beats the pants off Bud, Miller, Coors, but still more of the same, just beefed up a little. Probably mostly corn with maybe some mild hops, of course it's all so water diluted like most other adjuncts, it's hard to say.

M: It's like drinking a soda or any other adjunct. Overly carbonated, watery, very smooth and easy to drink, designed for the masses.

O: I'll buy this before I'll buy Budweiser, Coors, or Miller. It's my guilty pleasure, my go-to beer I pick up when I want to sit around and drink 10 or 12 over the course of an entire night and get buzzed.

If I'm in your typical store scenario where the selection is mostly all Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors Light, Busch, various "Ice" varieties, Mike's Hard Lemonade, Heineken, Corona, or Rolling Rock, I buy the Rolling Rock every time. I'd probably even choose it over a small selection of sub par craft beers.

I have had this beer many times but this is the first time I've had the privilege to review it, I guess. Pours what you'd expect from an adjunct lager, translucent yellow. Has a head momentarily, but it quickly bails. Smells kinda metallic, with corn and rice present. The taste is similar to the smell, almost no hops detected. The mouthfeel and drinkability is where this beer shines, however. One of the easiest drinking beers I've ever had. Overall, it's nothing to get too excited over, but for a cheap beer, it gets the job done.
