Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 03-02-2001

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.

Had in bottle at a wedding in September, sorry for the late review. In a nutshell, I didn't like it all. Give me a Bud Light, PBR, Old Milwaukee, Miller High Life, or just about any other AAL over this. Just did not do it for me at all. Won't choose to have another one.

Rolling Rock

Pours into a Duvel glass with a 1/4” foamy white head that settles relatively quickly to a large but thin island of foam and a small ring around the glass. The beer itself is a completely clear, light yellow color. Sipping leaves speckles and a few legs of lace some of which cling to the slide of the glass. Some gentle carbonation rises from the nucleation point in the glass. Eventually the foam pretty much disappears except for the small island being steadily refreshed by the light stream of bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is slightly malty with not much else going on.

The almost hidden flavors include a nice lightly sweet malt character with a touch of creamed corn (DMS) and graininess thrown in for good measure. There are also seems to be some light, faint, fruity flavor here (apple?).

The mouth feel is light bodied and has a gentle crispness to it from the light carbonation. The finish moves from a bit of sweetness on to an almost dry ending with little or no bitterness.

Overall this seems a reasonably good beer for what it is intended to be, light, refreshing and without any strong flavors. Also it seems to me it is better than I remember some of its competitors being.

Nothing extraordinary, small hints of creamed corn (as has been mentioned), but the difference from bottle to bottle is noticeable. Some bottles have a distinct peanut-butter tasting finish, after a nose of pure barley.

Easy to drink 10-12 of them and wake up no worse-for-the-wear

Great beer for when you have no money and are depressed about your life. Sad but true...
