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.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Dull straw, very slight haze and no head. Horrible communistic aroma with lots of phenols, rotting grains, apple. Watery body, lots of glue. Bland...I wonít go so far as to say inoffensive. This beer has a lot of problems. Old equipment, poor QC, that sort of thing. Like I said, communistic.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2004 (Bottle) Tastes, smells, and looks like a Budweiser... Enough said...

Tmoney99 (11684) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle from sampler set. Poured a clear copper color with an average creamy off-white head that was mostly lasting. Average hoppy citrus aroma. Medium body with a thin texture. Light bitter sweet flavor with a short finish.

BeerandBlues2 (10607) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 30, 2004
Pours gold with very thin white head. Aroma is of hops and some sour malt and yeast. Flavor is flat with malt notes and a hop bitterness. Palate is light and crisp.

daknole (10111) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2009
Well for an unknown lager it was a bit of a surprise. Yellow pour, white head. Aroma is sweet, grainy and malty. Flavor is pretty smooth with some sweetness and light malts. Not a great beer, but very easy to drink.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Bottle... Clear pale yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head that is ... ZAP!... gone in a flash. Weak aroma when cool, but as it warms, it rears its ugly head. Smells like poultry drippings (no, not droppings) and spent, pale grains with a much lesser note of honey and a whisper of menthol. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. Leans slightly on the bitter side of balance. Uninspired and boring. Finishes short and crisp with a moderately bitter hop pinch.

hopdog (9588) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2009
12oz bottle acquired in trade with daknole (thanks!). Poured a medium yellow/golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of graininess, and corny. Tastes of the same graininess, corny, and a little sweet. Hey, its a Pale Lager!

shrubber85 (8751) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 23, 2006
Bottle. Sweet roasted barley aroma. Amber color with small head. Slightly sweet initially but then turns into a mess - soap and metallic flavors overwhelm the palate. Not good at all.

3fourths (8495) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle from a Historical Beers of America gift pack. Has some caramel and maple notes in the nose, almost like cedar scented hay, I would call it. Flavor is adjunct-ey, sweet, grainy, with a light maple sweetness. Honestly itís not that bad, I think because it was kept out of the light. A bland lager, thatís for sure, but itís not disgusting or anything.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2010
At least this one didnít make me turn my head away in reulsion with its aroma! Sweet grainy aroma and flavour, again with that odd artificial sugary component that I canít stand in so many of Minhasí beers. Also the expected thin watery palate. Iím giving the rest of these Minhas specialty pack beers to my father-in-law. They should re-label the case to be "Historic Bottles of American Piss".
