2.63/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

I enjoy a rolling rock over the AAL lights but i have to admit its not at all special. I was always told it was the poor mans Heineken.
Look: As stated on the label pale straw/light gold.
Smell: Water and corn a little skunk.
Taste: Water extremely inoffensive although if served cold its very refreshing on a hot day.
Feel: Carbonation, pure carbonation goes down like water.
Overall I love this beer for a long drinking day but it is certainly nothing special. Still i enjoy it better than a Bud/Busch light though they are quite similar.

Normally i would discuss a beer based on all its elements. But not with this beer. This beer doesn't even deserve a review.

It smells like corn
It tastes like corn
It looks like liquid corn
it feels like corn.
Overall: Corn.

Never again.

Yawn, snore, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......................
I don't think you could brew a more boring beer if you tried. But being a Labatt product, this is about the best they will ever do.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Aroma: Canned corn, no hop, almost a laundry aroma, light yeast.
Appearance: Brilliantly clear Pale straw, creamy white 2” head that quickly dissipates, not much lace, thin texture.
Flavor: thin, slight malt slightly sweet grain and corn, very light flavored corn like sweetness, hops are difficult to discern.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, very light body, slight carbonation bight on the tongue, a little slickness on the tongue.
Overall Impression: thirst quenching but very light, little character, boring.

16 oz can from Market Basket, because why the hell not?
Deep yellow color with a huge frothy white head. Corny grainy aroma with light apples. The flavor is grainy lightly sweet bread with bits of polenta. Medium to light body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a crisp sharp mouthfeel. Goes down pretty smooth and somewhat quickly through my parched gullet.

On tap at Swinging Chicken Saloon.

Pours a clear yellow, left a small white head that dissipated quickly.

Has absolutely no scent to speak of.

Taste is light, has spiced notes of coriander, corn, no toasted malts poke through at all. Watery, thin, light bodied. Light carbonation.

Cheapest beer on tap, what should I expect?

A- 3- Pretty much nothing but light gold North American blah

S- See above

T- See above

M- See above

O- See above. What a typical North American beer

Food Pairing

This regular beer goes well with anything you would have with a Miller Light or Bud.

Enjoy

I was impressed with Rolling Rock. It had a nice golden amber color with a decent head. For its price I would overall reccomend it. It goes down smooth and clean without a strong after taste. The carbonation works nicely with the beer as well. Try it!!

This is the Canadian version of the popular American beer Rolling Rock.

Pours a very pale golden colour.

Smell is very faint, almost no existent.

Taste is very smooth and refreshing.

Lots of cabonation. No aftertaste.

Overall I enjoy this beer. Very refreshing with a clean aftertaste.

Give it a try.
