Being a Rolling Rock man from my teenage days in western PA I had to try this.

Pours a light caramel with a big fizzy white head that fades fast. The nose offers little; maybe some grains and very faint caramel. The flavor tastes like regular Rolling Rock with just a hint of caramel and some biscuity notes. The mouthfeel is light with a typical crisp carbonation.

I liked trying something new from the Rolling Rock label but ultimately this was unfulfilling. Ill pass next time.

Rolling Rock Amber Lager has a thin, white head, essentially no lacing, and a very clear, somewhat bubbly, light, reddish-brown appearance. Aroma is faint, but one can pick up some roasted and sweet malts, with effort. Taste is also low profile, but sweet bread crust and a shade of background bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Rolling Rock Amber Lager finishes crisp and refreshing. Drinkablility is predictably high.

I'll pass on this next time. You are much better off getting a Yuengling.

12 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a clear amber color. The head is a finger high with a white shade and crap retention. No lacing, either. Still, the translucence of the body is quite attractive.

S: Typical macro adjunct lager + some caramel malts = this aroma. There you go, wham, bam, thank you ma'am.

T: Cereal grains? Some cooked veggies? Yep, this tastes just like a macro lager, just with a bit more caramel-laden sweetness. Ehhh...

M: Weirdly full-bodied and sweet, with a shit ton of carbonation. It simply doesn't go down easily like it should.

O: As someone who can get regular Yuengling as easily an STD from some prostitute named Krystal, I see little reason to drink this again. Seriously, just buy Yuengling if you want an adjunct-y amber lager.

Tastes like a watered down version of regular Rolling Rock. Very disappointed and would not recommend this beer to anyone. I'm debating on throwing it out or mixing it with good beer as to at least not throw $6.00 away. This beer has very little taste. Bland is the best descriptor I can think of.
