COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed from all malt, with no corn adjunct, Rock River offers a full, rich mouthfeel, balanced by plenty of fresh-tasting Continental hop aroma, satisfying complex, yet easy to enjoy.

It has a light foamy white head that fades quickly to a thin wispy covering and then down to nothing. There is not much in the way of lacing, just a few slick spots at the top of the glass. The body has a bright golden color with very good clarity and some visible carbonation. The aroma is light and has hints of grassy hops, light husky grain and cooked vegetables. Its flavor has a fairly dry grainy, corn and husky malt taste with some grassy hops. The finish is dry with mild bitterness and acidity as well as an odd salty mineral like thing. The body is light to medium with a light easy drinking texture and light fizzy carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Bottle - thanks Brandon. Pale hazy orange amber pour with a smaller head. Slightly sweet. Low flavor - pretty dull beer.

stevoj (2325) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Purchased as part of the Beers of America Historical Collection, contract brewed from original recipes. Nothing special at all here, nice golden color, no head and light lacing. Flavor is so light it’s almost non-existent. Reminds me of an American macro-brew from the 70’s, which is not a good thing....

Mild lemon, yeast, and grain aroma. Golden with thin white head. Full bodied lager, grain, mild hop note, and hint of caramel. Balanced, mild dry bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - DEC 14, 2011
Very light clear golden body with a thin white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma of grass and perfume. Taste was light malt and hops but very thin on the palate. Easy to drink.

MIBRomeo (2567) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2011
Light wheat colored pour very clear a full soapy head and vicious carbonation throughout. Palate is much to thin (watery). Aroma of some sweet grains a hint of bread fades quickly. Taste is light sweet grains, very basic lager w/ a little extra sweetness. A simple easy to drink, unoffensive beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle.
Pours a lively, deep gold yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is corn-fed and corn-roasted malt with buttery hops and floral bread. Flavor is corny lemon, zesty malt, and buttered biscuit. Lively and tingly on the tongue. No corn? Sure about that?

rougeau13 (2025) - Richmond, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Pale lager colored. Smells like chemicals and adjuncts and some malt. Taste is malt and water. Thin and yucky, a lasting yucky.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Golden clear. Doesnt hold a white head. Bland, chemically laden aroma. Harsh mouthfeel and bite that lasts well after the finish. Heavy malt taste.
