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.

Pour from a can into a glass at 35 degrees. The head of the beer is one finger frothy creamy with poor retention, typical for an AAL. The color of the beer is SRM 2 pale straw. The clarity of the beer is crystal clear. A large number of carbonation bubbles exist within.

The initial aroma of the beer is corn (light DMS), grain, floral, and light malt notes.
Additional aromas in the beer are yeast and green apple.

The first taste of the beer is floral, grain, light malt, and corn (medium DMS). Additional flavors in the beer are green apple, yeast, light floral, and a touch phenolic.

The mouthfeel of the beer is light, the carbonation is high, and the finish is medium.

For an AAL, this beer is not too bad. All the flavor and style is correct for this style of beer.

This beer hit the market in NC just as I was coming of age. I was a commuting college student at the time, still living with Mom and Pop. I recall that upon my 21st birthday, my Mom soon bought me (unsolicited) one twelve-pack of Schlitz Malt Liquor, then one twelve-pack of Rolling Rock (perhaps she thought that if I switched to beer, I would be less interested in weed, and she was right; I haven't done that stuff for two decades). However, when she noticed how quickly I drained a 12-pack, the flow ran dry, lol. Not a bad beer for the price, though. Too much corn flavor for my liking, but I will get it every now and then if the price is right. It does have a more distinctive flavor than many AALs, you just have to like/be in the mood for that flavor.

Look: In a can, but let's say 1 finger white head with a pale yellow body.

Smell : See below.

Taste : Grains, mild corn, and banana. Kind of a strange taste for an adjunct lager.

Feel : Light body, medium carbonation. Mildly sweet upfront, balanced finish.

This is one of my go to easy drinking beers. Yes, it may be one of hundreds of American adjunct lagers, but it has a unique flavor. I sense a hazelnut hint.

Too bad AB bought it. This is my chaser after a nice single malt.

I find absolutely nothing good about this beer. Rolling Rock Extra Pale tries a little bit too hard to be more than an adjunct lager, tasting as if the beer had fermented in a barrel full of pennies giving off a copper taste. The green bottles and cans are not good looking at all and the beer itself smells and tastes awful. If I could rate lower than a 1, I would. When buying a 30 pack of beer, I would highly recommend just going with either Coors, Bud Light or Natty.

If I could give a zero I would. I cannot fathom why anybody would buy Rolling Rock under any circumstances.
