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.

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not much of an aroma just a hint of yeast. Golden colour no head slight carbonation. Nutty taste with a mild slightly bitter palate.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle opened 12/8/13. Pours a clear amber color with a thin fizzy white head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, apple, tinny hops and a bit of skunk. The taste is caramel malts, very faint hops and a tiny hint of skunk. Thin bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of a sweeter version of regular Rolling Rock and also not skunky so, hey, good enough. Brisk carbonation keeps the sweet malt from getting to be too much. As it warms, some cereal grains come out and it actually gets a bit more drinkable. It’s not great but I can get into it.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Not much of any aroma or taste...tasted "thin" for a lager...no real body. Really disappointed. Like RR Pale Ale much more.

Bottle. A Shitty yuenling knock off and yuengling sucks. Terrible choice in my Saturday night.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle - pours clear pale amber with little white head. Nose is funky caramel. Sip introduces floral hops. Taste is better than the smell. Like plain rolling rock better.
