BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Latrobe Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
rollingrock.com

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.

I always kinda dug the Rock. Super pale and some sort of limestoney thing going on. They throw down like water!

Unlike most AALs, this one actually has some merit to its appearance, with a nice extra pale golden body and a two-finger white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Minimal retention or lacing, but still. Aromas are – as expected – mostly grainy, metallic, and sulfuric. Flavors largely follow the nose, with just a tad of saaz-like hoppiness. Super light and smooth drinking. Overall definitely up there for go-to shit beer, along with Narragansett, PBR, Miller High Life.

60/100

A universally unoffensive, albeit unremarkable, beer.

Look: It's light, yellowish, and carbonated. A little like if someone carbonated urine.

Smell: Corn and slightly gone-off malt. Not horrid, not special.

Taste: Is there a taste? First hit is water, followed by corn, little bit of wheat, barely any malt flavor. Again, unremarkable, but unoffensive.

Feel: Imagine a soda that lost 28% of its carbonation.

Overall: Look, RR is not a great beer. It's bottom shelf cheap, tastes like corn, and is 4.4%. What exactly did you expect? If it's summer, very little beer is as refreshing (barring sours of course), but it's cheap beer. Drinkable, CONSIDERABLY better than coors, bud, or anything with "ice" in the name, but nothing special.

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.
