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.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: Straw yellow, tons of carbonation, almost no head.

Smell: A little hops, a little corn, a little malt. Nothing really stands out.

Taste: Unusual. A sort of earthy bittersweet flavor, almost like a cheap mushroom mixed with corn. Pretty much no hop or malt flavor. Not gross, but unusual.

Mouthfeel: Typical for an adjunct lager, thin and carbonated.

Overall: I'm not sure where I stand on this one. It tastes different than typical macro brews, but I'm not 100% positive on how much I enjoy it. Regardless, it's easy to drink and a bit more interesting than Bud.

The beer is a light clear yellow color with tons of carbonation. The head is white with good retention and no lacing.
Smells of inexpensive grains and metal.
Taste is metallic and sweet with no hops profile at all.
The mouth feel is that of sparkling water.

Having this beer out of a giant can is really the way to go. You need lots of this beer to catch a buzz and the can stops it from getting skunky which as a kid I remember being a problem with this beer. Not much of a nose, sweet and bready if digging deep. Flavor is bready and light, at least not much adjunct detected. Thin and well carbonated which works for this nothing brew.

Looks like watery beer. Smells almost benign, some faint malts,cereal grain,muted hops. Tastes is very crisp and refreshing with a mild lemon ting. Feels like hop juice you could drink instead of water. This beer is a paradox in the sense it tastes like minimal beer, but is substantially refreshing.Clear bottle is stupid.

Very pleasantly surprised!
Drank straight out of the 16oz green can.
L: Not a clue what it looked like but for this occasion I didn’t really care.
S: Had a nice soft and sweet wheaty aroma, faintly floral, just a hint fruit, hop and malt. I sniffed it several times on the way down. It was always pleasant!
T: Tasty. Enjoyable and quite flavorful for such a pale light beer.
F: Great bite, great drinkability. Crisp, clean, refreshing!
O: Overall a great beer. Like I said, I was pleasantly surprised at the nice smooth flavorful taste. Wish I would have tried this years ago. This hit the spot. Followed it with a Snake Handler DIPA! Awesome night with best friend and a fine cigar! I will buy this again.

A watery, cheap beverage. Pale piss colored, with a strong smell of stale grain. It's fine after a long day, or to down some burgers. Probably the best beer at the neighbor's BBQ. It's okay.

25 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 7/28/2017. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Okay aromas with pale malt/corn and mild earthy hop notes; with poor strength. A bit fruity, but not overpowering. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, minimal fruity/yeasty notes. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a decent pale adjunct lager style. All around solid robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful for the ABV. Clean malt/grain flavors with mild earthy hop balance. A bit too heavy on the corn, but enjoyable.

This is what I use to drink before I got into well made lagers. This is NOT so good as it use to be to me. Close to undrinkable if you ask me. Cheers! D- (60-64) score range

$1.98 was the price for a 6-pack of bottles. For the price this is phenomenal beer.

Drank cold straight from the bottle. Could not find a date of manufacture. Few off flavors when ice-cold. Went down smooth as compared to stouts drank of late (Evil Twin Even More Jesus line...).

Not bad for American mass-produced beer. If I were to guess I'd guess this is an american lager. Not positive!

Would drink again. A steal. 18 bottles for 7 dollars including tax.

Rolling Rock is my go-to. It has a great taste, it isn't too heavy, and it's cheap!! Three factors you want if you're looking to have a good time!

Not gonna lie, I got into this beer through one James Rolfe, better known as the Angry Video Game Nerd, who for those who don't know (and another review hinted at a bit more subtly) he would commonly drink it in nearly every one of his videos.

Onto the beer itself. It's insanely cheap, coming out at around 5 bucks after tax where I live. For that price, this is by far the best of the typical mainstream AAL type beers. Poured from the bottle straight into my Mewtwo glass. Average head, and strangely enough, at least to me, it was almost odorless. Taste very distinct and unique. Grainy, nutty, with a very tiny amount of sweetness.

Lemme get one thing out of the way while I can. The whole "skunking" thing with the green bottles, is a complete misconception. While light exposure can be a bad thing, this is almost never an issue if the beers are just stored properly and it would take a long time sitting out in the sun anyway. So don't avoid these just because of the bottle.

Overall, a fantastic beer for the price point, but don't expect it to compare to the high tier stuff.

A once good and distinctive American Adjunct Lager before Anheuser-Busch/InBev bought it. Today's offering is very pale yellow, has little to no head, thin lacing, tastes like corn meets stale biscuits meets a little bit of apple note, old week old gym socks, and more corn to finish it off. 1.5 at best. But cheap enough it can be forgiven.A very decent lawnmower beer, summer thirst quencher, just drink it when cold. However, Hamm's or Narragansett is my go to less than $5 a six pack lawnmower beer in Eastern Tennessee.
