CharmCityCrab (244) - Maryland, USA - APR 19, 2013
Might be the last American beer with a painted label on its bottles (I use the term American loosely here, Im aware that they are owned by an international conglomerate these days). The horse head, the white fence, the quality pledge, and the mysterious number "33" on every bottle are all iconic for a certain group of drinkers. The use of both rice and corn rather one or the other lends it a certain distinction from major adjunct lagers, which generally use one or the other (Maybe a good compromise in a group that cant decide between Bud and Miller or something). It also used to have a very distinctive aftertaste to it, a bit of sweet bitterness (Do those two adjectives cancel each other out? :) ), which I think its gradually lost to a some degree, unfortunately, since it went from being an independent company with its own brewery in Pennsylvania to being just another beer off the line at an AB-Inbev plant in New Jersey. And, yet, its still Rolling Rock. "Not Bud, Rock", as I remember reading that the t-shirts servers at one famous bar that had Rolling Rock on tap and wouldnt serve Budweiser in any format used to wear back when they were made by separate companies. Its clean, refreshing, basically a good adjunct lager, but you cant call it craft or elevate it too much. A lot of its appeal is admittedly packaging and branding, but when trying to save a little money, theres something about holding a bottle on an old friend in your hands. Sort of like Pennsylvanias version of Natty Boh. A lot of people remember their fathers drinking this beer when they were younger, or they themselves remember it being the beer of choice at their college dorm or in their early working years, and theres a lot of nostalgia attached to it. You cant fake history and tradition, though some brands try. This brand has it.

One of the great BBQ ice chest cramming smash brews of all time. Very grainy for a pale lager. Smooth, soft and ultra light with rice and slight hop dryness.

mathieuc (3868) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
Pours a sparkling clear yellow with a small white head that leaves good lacing. The archetypical fizzy yellow beer. Nose is all corn. Taste is dry and pretty rare, almost like drinking mineral water. Corn and rice I guess? Body is critically light and carbonation moderate, feeling really watery. Overall just a weak and tasteless macro beer. Not being offensive is certainly its best quality.

Pours a beautiful golden color with a medium sized creamy white head. The aroma is your typical american lager. Very faint aroma of malts and some fresh cut grass. The flavor is very neutral with not much going on. In fact, there just isnt much taste to it good or bad. You slightly pick up the adjuncts and a very extremely faint hop presence.

Probably one of the smoothest drinking beers out there. Excellence through simplicity.
