Latrobe Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States

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.

A: Pours a pale golden color with a decent head that fades to no real lacing.

S: Mild aroma of malt sweetness, some grain and a faint hint of being musty.

T: Mild flavor of malt sweetness and grain. light bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Light body and smooth.

O: Not bad for what it is. A good lawnmower/BBQ beer that goes down easy. A better choice than a light beer and you can't argue with the price.

Had this at a get together.

Pale gold with a small white head with poor retention. The smell has corn, cereal, and skunk. Not a good start.

The taste is just like the smell. Corn and cereal, and a definitely skunked beer.

Thin and watery with high carbonation. Just not a good beer, and the green bottle doesn't help at all. Nobody to blame but the brewery for this mess.

It took me about 4 sips to finish a can of this, after drinking 2 pints of spaten optimator. It's an extremely watery beer, but the price is right. I could definitely continuously put these down, even after a day of drinking. Rolling rock is a good alternative to an American beer like budweiser. Yet not as feminine as drinkin a ligh beer. It is light on the palette.

Seriously. This is a starter beer if there ever was one and to be honest I like it better than some. It's got no distinguishable highlights but remains an easily drinkable and refreshing beer if you absolutely positive have to drink more than 12.

The flavor is as mild as the nearly clear color but it's got a decent abv and would be ideal for an informal social event over fishing beers or other mass produced light lagers.

Poured into a pilsner glass. Beer #2 in my search for the best great American lager (AAL).

A-No head. No lace. Flat and yellow. High carbonation at first. However, it disappeared after a few minutes and turned flat.

S-Wheat and metallic.

T-Water, soda water, metallic, and a little hint of wheat.

M-Wet going in. Leaves a dry and sour aftertaste. No hops or malts present.

O-I do not recommend this beer. If you want adjunct lager, drink MGD. Maybe it was a bad batch, I don't know. There was not a date on it. I did not even finish the whole thing. I dumped it in the sink.
