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.

one of the better schwag beers, at least it was until it went corporate. not its adjuncty and lazy like the rest of them. it is a lot better than a coors or a bud light though, with some actual flavor in here, aside from the weird fermentables they react this with. its definitely thin though, watery in feel even though its carbonated like a soda. hops seem false too, i have to look for them, and when i find them, they are fakey and forced. malt base is super light, corny but not sweet, which is its real redeeming value. its also real drinkable being so light, and has something above the others like it, in that its still beer. sweetness lingers, but it stays super chuggable. in a situation where there is no good beer, i would drink this. if this wasnt present and it was bud or miller, i would chose not to drink at all. i guess thats about all i can say for this. i also grew up on it, which helps for nostalgic reasons, but nothing more than college swill here. its gone downhill...

Pours a clear golden straw color with a nice 2 finger head that dissipates rather slowly leaving minimal lacing down a 20oz pub glass.

Has a decent amount of smell of malts with the lager yeast smell that moves into a bright crisp smell of almost like green apple.

Taste is light and refreshing but nothing to write home about. I get that light malt that is distinctive of an american adjunct lager that turns into that bright crisp green apple taste that I smelled.

Mouthfeel is light but has good carbonation.

Overall, an average beer that I will not be rushing out to get more of. I am glad I gave it a try but I am not real impressed. It kind of led me on a little with the extra pale written on the bottle but to me there was nothing extra or pale about it.

It's a light, easy to drink lager that has virtually no flavor. This isn't actively horrible, but it's really not worth seeking out and I'd hesitate to say it's any better than the main American macro lagers.
