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.

ROLLING ROCK EXTRA PALE 10/2/17

Bought a thirty pack cheap so my relatives have beer when they visit. For the most part they are not craft savvy.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Unibroue stemmed Pilsner

a: Clear yellow with a half finger white head which receded to thin surface foam and no lacing.

s: Lightly sweet perhaps leaning to lemon

t: Biscuit malt with a little bite and lots of carbonation bubbles and again very light hints of lemon. Slightly sweetish finish.

m: Light plus, ok body and considerable carbonation tingle.

o: A mainstream light ale with adjuncts (corn and rice) to sweeten it for general public
consumption. A good value for less than 60 cents a can, especially if you like your beer this light and easy drinking. Certainly doable as a highly sessionable hot weather beverage.

Figured I would give it a try. Not bad. Try it yourself and see. Remember seeing Kiefer Sutherland drink it in the movie Stand By Me. Subliminal advertising.

Last time I had this beer was in 1986 at a Hard Rock Cafe in NYC. Wow. Don't remember how it tasted back then, but this time I sampled a 12 ounce can. Very light straw color with a soapy white head that fades quickly. Smell is clean malts, rice, and some hops. Taste is very light. Like a light beer. Mostly rice and sweet malts. Very boring, actually. But clean and crisp. Not offensive at all. Huge lack of flavor, however. Probably would make a good backyard BBQ beer where you can easily have several of these. $8.69 for a 12 pack.

I used to drink this beer daily in the early 2000's, and I used to buy it by the case. I didn't know any better, and I was spending a little bit more than I probably should have.
Look: It looks very generic and not eye pleasing whatsoever.
Smell: Coppery, sort of skunky to me.
Taste: Not the greatest but goes along with all of the other light-tasting American beers out there.
Feel: It's very easy to drink, it goes down smooth. It's easy to get carried away with a case of these. (I have some fond memories, haha)
