Flavor: thin, slight malt slightly sweet grain and corn, very light flavored corn like sweetness, hops are difficult to discern.

16 oz can from Market Basket, because why the hell not?
Deep yellow color with a huge frothy white head. Corny grainy aroma with light apples. The flavor is grainy lightly sweet bread with bits of polenta. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a crisp sharp mouthfeel. Goes down pretty smooth and somewhat quickly through my parched gullet.

On tap at Swinging Chicken Saloon.

Pours a clear yellow, left a small white head that dissipated quickly.

Has absolutely no scent to speak of.

Taste is light, has spiced notes of coriander, corn, no toasted malts poke through at all. Watery, thin, light bodied. Light carbonation.

Cheapest beer on tap, what should I expect?

Rolling Rock is actually a really good beer. I wouldn't drink this just to get drunk or to party with it, but I think its perfect as a casual beer you could have with a meal.

S- See above

T- See above

M- See above

O- See above. What a typical North American beer

Food Pairing

This regular beer goes well with anything you would have with a Miller Light or Bud.

I was impressed with Rolling Rock. It had a nice golden amber color with a decent head. For its price I would overall reccomend it. It goes down smooth and clean without a strong after taste. The carbonation works nicely with the beer as well. Try it!!

This is the Canadian version of the popular American beer Rolling Rock.

Pours a very pale golden colour.

Smell is very faint, almost no existent.

Taste is very smooth and refreshing.

Lots of cabonation. No aftertaste.

Overall I enjoy this beer. Very refreshing with a clean aftertaste.

Give it a try.
