Latrobe Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
rollingrock.com

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.40%

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.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a custom taster pint; bottles October 28, 2018.
A: Pours a crystal clear, light golden color with champagne-style bubble, a frothy, white, two finger head, relatively low retention, and soapy lacing.
S: Aromas of sweet white corn on the cob, grasses and grains.
T: Semisweet. Palate follows the nose closely. Strong, almost cumin-like bitterness.
M: Light bodied with light carbonation overall. Grainy and a little rough on the palate.
O: I grew up with Rolling Rock, but never rated/reviewed. My grandfather drank it (Dad was more of a Miller High Life man). So perhaps nostalgia plays a role, but this is a light, flavorful, and refreshing lager. Score it for what it is and not for what it is not, i.e a "big flavor" beer.

At 4.4% a very good session beer that I have always enjoyed for the past 4 decades. Refreshing, clean and crisp and notably different than other lighter brews like Busch. Must be the hops or yeast. Its had its up and downs over the years. Now brewed by AB INBEV, they may have gone back to the original the recipe. Their site says early malt, corn and rice, but not at all like Bud, not beech wood aged. Kind of sweetish, like cheerios, yet still a very good premium cheap beer.

The workingman's beer in PA. I grew up in Philly, and Rolling Rock was the beer most similar to Coors Banquet back in the day. Drinkable at $4.99/6.

America is full of mass-produces beer designed to get you fat instead of drunk. Budweiser is considered to be the magnum opus of this practice, but Rolling Rock is arguably worse in that department.

Appearance is pretty transparent and the head dissipates rather quickly. Smells like faint grains/corn...not much to it. This was the first beer i really enjoyed the taste of, and still pick it up now and then. A bit thin and watery, but there is some taste to it. Just looking at the label reminds me of the '70s haha

5.99 for a 12 pack of bottles. I'm good with that for some solo suds on a Monday. Am I showing up at a party with this? No.
My son's fraternity? 2 30 packs, yes.

Classic pale ale with classic notes of hops and a crisp finish. This beer will always remind me of summer and no matter what I can always remember the taste when I see the "Old Latrobe 33", nostalgic.

This was the first beer which I got drunk with. At first it tasted horrendous and forced my self to drink it in order to have a story for the boys when we came back from spring break. Now that my tongue has developed a taste I can say it has a fair flavor. You do get a taste and is not watery. Has a grainy feel to it while drinking but once you've downed a good 2 bottles you'll start to really enjoy it.

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.
