1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Well, I grew up in PA and remember when my Dad raved about how great this used to be before Latrobe sold out. Funny, how I’m only getting to this now, sigh, ah, oh well.
Anyways, here’s my notes.
Its been poured in pint glasses and pilseners.
The appearance was a super light yellow color with a rapidly dissipating one finger white foamy head that left barely any lacing.
The smell has always been super skunky and bland.
The taste was exactly the same.
The palate, well, if anything, its exceptionally light, ,and ya know how sessionable this one can be.
Overall, this is one of those definitions of Light Lagers taken over by InBev.
I wish I had it when my Dad had it and what this originally was meant to be. Good job InBev for screwing this up.

Pale golden lager. Nothing distinct - in fact there isn’t much taste at all. Not the worst lager out there but that’s as much as can be said for it

Tap, Earl of Sussex, Ottawa, Canada. Very pale, no head. Very faint aroma. Equally faint flavour. Nothing offensive, though little to speak to.

Surprised to find that I hadn’t rated this one yet. Had many of these back before I had discovered good beer. This used to be like a semi-premium upgrade from the cheap stuff...and honestly, it still kinda is. Got it on sale for Natty Light prices. It pours fizzy with a thin head that dissipated like that of a soda. Taste is watery and primarily consists of corn and cereal grain. Saving grace is that there are very faint grass and pepper notes. It’s a value at Keystone prices, but not impressive otherwise.

Really not worth commenting. Standard mass-produced swill. Drinkable, but not much more.

When I was a beginner in the world of pubs, I preferred Rolling Rock, then it soon stopped. It was maybe for it was one of the few ’Western’ and American beers available in Hungary. Soon I changed my preference from lager to pilsener type of beers, so Rolling Rock remained nothing like a romantic memory. Otherwise, it’s a smooth stuff, but, thanks, I don’t take more.

On tap. Clear light gold with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are cereals, hay and grass with spicy notes. Light body, fizzy carbonation, watery texture.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-15-12 -
Poured from 24 oz can into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light golden color with tons of carbonation bubbles and a huge billowing white head. The head contains huge carbonation bubbles and fades very fast. While not leaving much lacing there is an ever so light bit.
Smell – Sweet with corn malt. Not too much else is prevalent, although there may be an ever so slight bit of grassy aroma as well.
Taste – Corm malt sweetness meets the tongue and lasts throughout the experience. There is a bit of barley flavor toward the middle and an ever so light bit of spice (hard to place, but very light floral and pine I think).
Mouthfeel – Very light body. A bit too thin though as it seems to almost leaves the mouth as soon as it gets there. The carbonation is on par for the style however; a little bit heavier and rather invigorating.
Overall – Very mild on most fronts. Not a beer to go to if looking for something more “flavorful and heavy”, but not a bad beer to have on a hot day after working outside and needing something lighter and more refreshing.

Can. Light golden pour. Grain, grass. Crisp carbonation (seltzer like), light body and watery. Not offensive like many affordable beer but not much more.
