Latrobe Brewing Co.
Missouri, United States
rollingrock.com

Style: American Adjunct Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.60%

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.

White head. Light cereal grain notes. Light body. Crisp and dry finish. For the style, this beer is good. It's serviceable. Perfect for ball games and barbecues. It's not complex and it's not meant to be.

Ultra clear zero head, light carbonation. Smells of creamy wheat and a bit of steel. Cool and slightly sweet with a mild tart fruity apple finish. Again a steel taste lingers longer than it should, but the finish is pretty light crisp and refreshing. Pretty high on my list of cheap beers. I bought an 18 pack for 8 bucks. Worth it.

As stated - from a long time ago...I grew up on $1.25 sixers of RR in the late 70's (the short barrel looking bottles). It had a special clarity to the look and the taste back then - very crisp - that I do not find today. Yes, they have ruined this beer (glass lined tanks?). Still - it's acheap and inoffensive summer time sessionable AAL...

L - Yellow, lots of carbonation and no head to be found after a couple seconds.

S - It was near impossible to find any smell at all. What I did find was some corn and grain scents.

T - very, very corny. No hops to be found. Bit sweet for my liking of what it is. It's crisp in a way, and carries mostly just the flavours of corn and some wheat or grain somewhere? It's all hard to reach. Not much imprint. The finish is almost metallic with corn. Not great.

F - It's smooth, but there's a lot of carbonation and not much else to say about it. I could chug it easily, and it doesn't feel like much going down. Very light, and too light for it's taste.

O - This is better than some of the other mass produced light beers and such. It feels like it could be better marketed as a "light" pale ale. It's just another one of these many mass produced North American beers and not much different than any others. If you got nothing else you can do worse, but if you're picking it up to drink something that stands out a bit, you could do so with taste. No go for me.

Poured cold from 12-ounce bottle into standard pint glass. Pale straw color, with a couple of fingers of wispy white foam that settled after a minute or two. Not much to write about here. Very light aroma, flavor, and body, with a little bitterness on the finish as it warmed. Overall, don't bother.

You people don't know shnit! Beer is beer!!! Craft beer is awesome but you geeks give it a bad name for hard working regular beer drinkers. Rolling Rock was better when it was made in PA.

Appearance: well I like the colour of the can it came in.
Smells like corn chips.
Tastes like any industrial lager
Mouth feel....none

I wanted some AAL and I wanted it to be cheap. This was both. Not spectacular, but I've paid more for worse beer

as someone mentioned, remarkably inoffensive... yet remarkably without any character too. it's like pbr but without any hop presence. unlike pbr the adjunct aftertaste is muted quite a bit. served cold, you could easily put down a lot without thinking... but it wouldn't be all that enjoyable. used to be so much better in the 80s.

Nice change of pace and price. Does not compete with craft beers by any means. That said, it's not that bad....goes down really easily. Rolling Rock has been around for a long time......used to be special but not so much anymore.
