Had on tap in a plastic cup. Appearance is a medium gold with a thin, fizzy white head. All in all it looks like your typical fizzy pale yellow beer. Not much to it but not much to complain about either. Aroma is basically nonexistent. A little bit of bread and corn along with maybe the slightest hint of hay but I really don’t pick up much. the flavor is really about as weak as the aroma. A touch of bread and corn it is very light but also not offensive at all. Basically zero bitterness with just the slightest bit of stickiness left over. Soft mouthfeel. Overall, this is simply plain, fizzy, yellow beer. Completely unoffensive and goes down like water. Honestly this wouldn’t be too bad on a hot day but even then I am looking for something a bit more.

12oz can 3/22/14 (Friend)-Pours a clear golden with a small white ring. Aroma of corn, grains, and other macros. Taste of the same with a small amount of malt and hops coming thru. This light bodied brew is a typical pale lager.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch ganz leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, minimal malzig, getreidig, ganz leicht herb.

Rolling rock is a classic beer that you buy by the case to save your wallet and still experience a great overall beer.

Malt and apple on the nose. Tastes like apple cider, sparkling mineral water, and some malt extract. That being said, Its perfectly fine for the super-palatable "extra-pale" lager profile its going for. It doesn’t have any major flaws or off tastes. I’d play beer pong with this with non-beer nerds.

I poured a 25oz can into a boot stein. It was canned on 12/23/13 and cost $1.49 ($0.06 per ounce).

Appearance: Lives up to its name as it is definitely quite pale. Yellow/white gold hue, crystal clear body with plenty of carbonation visible. Pours to a small, bright white, soapy head which fizzles away and leaves little to no lacing.

Smell: Generic, uninspired, corny macro lager. Green bottles tend to be very skunky.

Taste: Rolling Rock Extra Pale has always been one of those macro beers with niche appeal. Probably because of the distinctive green bottles. It’s not quite a major macro brew, but it’s not considered among the lowest rung of economy lagers. Haven’t tasted it, it probably should be. There’s not a lot to like here. In fact, the beer tastes rather fake. It has a distinct corn presence from the use of actual corn as an adjunct, though I’m betting corn syrup is used to sweeten it as well. It imparts a slightly dirty/metallic character with an abrasive tang throughout. It’s like an "ice" brew without the ice.

Drinkability: This beer walks a fine line between being a straight macro lager and a light one. At only 4.5% ABV it’s not surprising that there isn’t much taste or body here, though it’s nowhere near being sessionable. The mouthfeel is thin and tepid with a watery texture. Somehow the carbonation still manages to get stuck in my throat. Though it finishes clean (thankfully), I would not describe Rolling Rock Extra Pale as a refreshing beer.

OLD NOTES DEC 25, 2003 Has a decent sweet hop aroma about it. Poured golden, the head disappeared a bit quick, but my glassware it blame there. Very bland! Not alot of character at all, a light sweet hop body maybe, but not alot. Almost like a really whussy pilsner.
