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.

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(Nov. 21, 2017 born-on date)

L: crystal clear yellow, maybe as dark as SRM 2 but lighter than 3; pushes up thickish head of white foam over an inch tall off a medium pour; sticks a little at the top; keeps a nice collar of white/offwhite foam and some skin from light activity in the glass — light activity for the style, that is; no major lacing

S: peach, yeast, dust, house paint, grain ... that "house paint" aroma I get so often from AALs is a mix of yeast and grain, I think, and Rolling Rock definitely has it; as it warms, the peanut note that shows up right away in the flavor begins showing up here in the nose; stale grain

T: yeast, grain, light bit of lemon peel, nuts ... peanuts, probably from the mix of yeast flavor with some other flavor notes

F: surprisingly soft for the style ... still light, crisp and plenty of carbonation, but instead of the carbonation scouring your tongue and mouth, it kind of melts into an ale softness; with that said, the carbonation definitely prickles the front of your tongue to lead off each sip

O: mighty fine beer for the style, even better beer for the price; the nut/peanut flavor is interesting, for I've encountered it in some American-made Belgian abbey ale styles of beer but never in an AAL (at least not that I can recall);

Not bad for an American lager, a little more smooth than PBR. There’s much more preferable styles. A little watery, but for a nice refreshing beer this does the job.

Pour from a can into a glass at 35 degrees. The head of the beer is one finger frothy creamy with poor retention, typical for an AAL. The color of the beer is SRM 2 pale straw. The clarity of the beer is crystal clear. A large number of carbonation bubbles exist within.

The initial aroma of the beer is corn (light DMS), grain, floral, and light malt notes.
Additional aromas in the beer are yeast and green apple.

The first taste of the beer is floral, grain, light malt, and corn (medium DMS). Additional flavors in the beer are green apple, yeast, light floral, and a touch phenolic.

The mouthfeel of the beer is light, the carbonation is high, and the finish is medium.

For an AAL, this beer is not too bad. All the flavor and style is correct for this style of beer.
