Still pretty generic as far as beers go, but at least now RR has an option where you can get watery caramel malt flavouring instead of watery corn. Marginally the best of Rolling Rock’s bland and tasteless offerings which really isn’t saying a lot.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 6oz pony bottle (yay rocks and wings?): Pours golden with a hint of red and a tiny head with no retention. Aroma is very faint pale malt, corn, and grain. Taste is cereal grains, corn, and maybe a hint of hops on the very back end. Light body, heavily carbonated. For an American domestic corn water, this one isn’t that bad, It’s still not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rolling Rock Amber Lager has a thin, white head, essentially no lacing, and a very clear, somewhat bubbly, light, reddish-brown appearance. Aroma is faint, but one can pick up some roasted and sweet malts, with effort. Taste is also low profile, but sweet bread crust and a shade of background bitterness is detected. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Rolling Rock Amber Lager finishes crisp and refreshing. Drinkablility is predictably high. RJT

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
This beer does not pour amber; I don’t know what to call the color but it is too light to be amber. The head is soft but adequate, and yet there is no aroma. The flavor is light, faintly malty, and not at all bitter. I think this is supposed to be a Yuengling clone, but comes out lighter in all points. Not good or offensive.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a very Amber Amber. Little to no head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste has a sweet malty molasses note. Not my favorite but drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 12 ounce bottle purchased at The Party Source. Light to medium tan/amber color, sweet/skunky nose, light bittersweet flavor with some amber character and of course some adjuncts. Better than my low expectations. A-B makes a beer that scores above a 2.5-- I can hardly contain my excitement. And of course it would have been significantly better if the corporate behemoth never got its claws on the RR brewery.
