Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

Availability: Year-round

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.

Pours a brilliant light gold with a foamy one inch ivory head that dissipates slowly, leaving thick lacing.

Aroma is grainy, earthy, and buttery. There's a bit of sulfur. Reminds me of canned peas.

Flavor is similarly earthy and minerally, with a biscuity malt backbone, and finishes with cracker-like dryness. Acetaldehyde is evident.

Body is fairly watery, with moderate carbonation and slight astringency.

Some odd flavors and aromas, in comparison with other products of this caliber.

Enjoyed from a bottle.

A: The appearance is a very, very light gold... almost yellow. Clear and bubbly. A big foam head forms after the initial pour. I usually drink this straight from the bottle but I've poured this beer a few time before.

S: Not much to write about. Typical of the style. Light scent with a kick of grains.

T: The first thing I always notice is the sweetness. It is not the sweetest beer I've ever had but it definitely stands out in this department from the other AALs. Very smooth, not much bitterness. This is not a complex beer, which, depending on your situation, could be good or bad.

M: Carbonation and lots of it. Very light body.

Overall: I like this beer. I would gladly choose this over most of the other American Adjunct Lagers. Great in "quantity over quality" situations.
