COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the good name of Rolling Rock along with the untraditionally painted green bottle, we created this finely crafted red lager beer. Our toasted caramel malt introduces a rich, robust taste to a remarkably smooth finish. We tender this finely crafted red lager for your continued enjoyment, as a tribute to your good taste

I have to break from the current convention here and say that I don’t like this one. The aroma is off putting and somewhat putrid (cigarette butts and grain)! It’s almost stale and skunky despite being really fresh? There is some toffee however. The appearance is like a cola with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma with only the toffee flavor saving it. The finish is sweet. The palate is thin. Overall I do not like this.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper colored pour, medium sized white head that sticks around for a while. Sweet aroma, hints of toffee, hard candy. Flavor has a touch of caramel, some sweet candy corn notes. Mouthfeel is slightly thick, but just a bit too artificially sticky. Overall though, not a bad lager - not overly upset that I bought a six - will make a nice thirst quencher after working in the yard.

Wow, looks like Tallahassee gets a dubious beer ’first’. Slightly toasted malt aroma, over corn - vaporous and tickles the nose a bit, but not too impressive. Poured into my Margaritaville Pilsener of Low Expectations. Medium-light red-brown. A respectable head initially. Green bottle wth screw-off top, painted red bronco that made me think "cowboy beer". Watery chocolate, moderate astringency, low bittering, toasty, reasonably dry, some grassiness. Medium to slightly light bodied. I guess this is going to be AB’s attempt to compete with what looks like a growing Yeungling presence here in the panhandle. This is a fair attempt - much better than regular old Rolling Rock, not as good as Yeungling Lager, which usually has a better price point. Picked this fine specimen up at the Bradfordville Petro.

Sampled at St. Patrick’s Day block Party from some Anheuser-Busch Vendor. The bottle was not green as the description says, it said Rolling Rock Red down the bottle with all the R’s at a angle. Poured a bright amber with a small white head. Lots of carbonation but little foam. Aroma was nearly nonexistent but maybe light grain. Taste was refreshing as the effervescent simple light grain and weak clean hop finish went down fast. thin body. not much of a beer and kinda a step backwards if this is there final version but than again maybe the girl who served it to me let all the bottles sit in the blazing sun all day thinking keeping it on ice would do. if you live in the Tallahassee area i think Momo’s pizza (Tennessee st.) is serving bottle but i need to check again.
