Being from the East originally, I guess we used to get fairly fresh RR on the store shelves. Yeah, the green bottles may look attractive, but get ready for the SKUNK! I would ususally choose this for a hot weather lawnmower beer anyday over Miller or Bud. At least there’s some malt and hop flavor to it, albeit light. Goes down easy on a sweltering August day!

Not a bad domestic choice. (Read what you will into that one.) It IS extra pale. Relatively non-offensive, though a bit skunky. Once again....the green bottle MUST be the cause for the slight skunkiness.

not a great ’extra pale’. hoppy, but that’s about it. it is so pale, it tastes like the flavor was scared out of it.

An extremely average light brew. Certainly not a beer to promote to others as something to try.

Has that Budweiser smell. Looks sharp in the bottle, though.

This beer has it’s place in the world. To me it’s actually a thirst quencher. This is as close to water and as far from beer I think you can get.

I don’t understand the hype behind this beer. When I was a kid, my dad would drink this stuff when we visited my grandparents in Pittsburgh. A very watered down beer that has a soapy aftertaste. I agree it has a stale taste.

I totally agree with Aubrey, stale beer.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2003 Maybe it's just me, but this beer always tastes old and expired - not a very fresh taste to it. People seem to either love or hate this beer; I tend to lean towards the hate end of the spectrum.

Rolling rock is practically water. Ok, but it’s quite drinkable water and the little taste that it has is actually pretty good. I wouldn’t go out of my way to find it but I’d take it over bud or coors (ok, I won’t drink bud or coors even if that’s all there is as a matter of principle)
