1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottled as Premium Rock Light. The laughable information that I found while trying to figure out whether recipes had changed between the Latrobe brew and the "new" AB one is this: On AB’s website, it recommends pairing this beer with a spinach salad with cheddar and smoked Gouda. What the heck?! The beer is basically fermented corn juice... I’d guess the Rock Lite crowd isn’t exactly your Gouda connoisseurs. Maybe Velveeta would work? Anyhow, pour is a pale yellow... quickly dying fizz head, aromas of grain and metal. A bit of a grain flavor... it might even be barley (comes off as exotic compared to some of the more corn-driven lights.) Then again, maybe it’s rice. A little bit of grass and grain dust in the aftertaste. Meh...

I grew up with this beer near my hometown. This is a water version of Rolling Rock of course but not as bad as other light beers. This was a cheap alternative where I lived, this and genessee.

Bottle from Kroger. Pours clear pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished quickly with minimal lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body and soft carbonation. Light to medium sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. I would not recommend this beer to a freind.

This review is for Rock Light (not Rock Green). It might be retired now but I found a 6-pack of it in Plaistow, New Hampshire.
From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with a marking of 400042, although that might just be the patent number. Pours yellow with fizzy white head. Grassy aroma with a little twist of hops. Not as watered down as some lights. Light hops in the taste too. I actually like this one and I’m glad I found a 6-pack of it.

I remember having this once and that was all I needed to not have it again. Tastes like a half a regular rolling rock. No wonder it’s retired.

12 oz. can. Found a can of this stuff rolling around the back of the fridge in the garage. I can’t imagine how long it had been there. To my surprise it wasn’t skunked. Pours a golden yellow color with carbonated white head. Aroma of sweet corn and perhaps a trace of hops. Flavor is crisp but very thin, watery mouthfeel.

I wish they had not retired this beer. My girlfriend went apesh** for this stuff, which meant that I was a happy camper too. Clean drinking, it was the cat’s meow. This easily beats that Green Light Crap that has replaced this.

Pour looks like pee. No head,aroma or flavor. Water with something in it. Retired? Already? Gee who would have guessed.

Pours a nice crisp golden yellow color. Aromas of corn, grains, little hop action. Flavor is typical lager, crisp and not much else.
