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.

Great look, taste and feel in a light lager. Best one I've had since the AB-Imbev takeover. Maybe they've finally hit a brewing homerun after all these years.

I have fond memories of drinking this beer decades ago, but clearly my tastes have changed because this now tastes so flavorless and bland to me. Clear pale yellow color with quickly fading head. Very faint skunky smell but otherwise not much unpleasantness. Very faint notes of corn and grain - much lighter than the typical AAL - but really quite bland and watery overall. No bitterness and no lingering aftertaste. Not much mouthfeel. Decent carbonation. In a pinch these would be quick easy cheap beers to drink when just hanging out.

Drank from a 12 ounce can. Scores are based on the style.

Look - The bright green can with blue lettering reminds me of Sprite. Not an attractive can.

Smell - A very strong malt smell wafts from the can immediately after opening. It's quite pleasant and not muddied by any adjuncts.

Taste - Earthy sweet malt with a slight corny bump on the end. Hits hard but vanishes quickly.

Feel - Thin body with a mild carbonation makes for an easy but plain drink.

Overall - A decent brew, nothing fancy but more standout than big BMC beers. I could get behind this, especially at $13 for 30 cans.

I used to live near good old Latrobe. Mountain spring water, we used to joke because the creek/river next to the brewery was orange. Not kidding you. It's probably cleaned up now, but back in the early 80's it was a sight.
The beer tasted OK back then, but I got a sixer lately and poured it out. Sorry Rolling Rock you are not as good as before.
Reminds me of corona, another yucky beer.

This beer is fairly poor. It's main redeeming quality is the price, at $9 for an 18 pack its one of the cheapest beers you can buy. This beer has a skunky taste, but its drinkable if other options are unavailable.

25 Oz Can poured into a glass
Looks really really pale, almost yellow. Foam head dissipates very fast with no lacing. Above average carbonation
Smells a little different than most American cheap beers, getting some sourdough bread and sweetness.
Taste is water, bread, minerals, slight hop burn but not much. Certainly sweet. This is what i imagine raw bread dough tastes like. But i do like the overall taste even though it isn't too rich, perfect hot weather beer. Extremely drinkable because of the light body and non-bitterness. When they say "extra pale" they mean it!
Not my preferred style in any season other than summer, so the overall grade is a B-

My favorite macro, what beer is supposed to taste like at baseline.

Pale straw color with thin head. Light carbonation. Nothing really stands out really. A little difficult to get a handke on and can see why some may feel it lacks flavor.
