  • Rolling Rock: Great Lager from Latrobe, Pa.

    Nov 4, 2001 by Bryan_Carey is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smoothness, better than other American Lagers
    Cons: Low foam, aroma is a little skunky

    Summary: Rolling Rock is a lager- style beer brewed by the Latrobe Brewery in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. This beer was first produced in 1939, following the revival of the brewery in 1933. This facility had been closed, due to prohibition, but was quickly reopened ... read more

  • Now from New Jersey, Its a Joke from Pennsylvania

    Jun 13, 2011 by toiletoctopus is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I'm not drinking it now
    Cons: Bitter, Heavy Body, Watery Taste, Aftertaste, Gross, Overpriced

    Summary: Oh, the mighty have fallen. Perhaps it is due to more mature taste, or having tried a variety of beers, I cannot stomach Rolling Rock Lager. There is just something so gross about this beer, that I have no choice but to blast it, and if I could ... read more

  • Rolling Rock: Anheuser-Busch Owned. Same As It Ever Was.

    Oct 30, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: For what it's trying to be, it's above average.
    Cons: For what I enjoy drinking, it's well below average.

    Summary: Once again, my company has seen fit to have a Halloween party, which means loud music and lowered lights on my floor. It also means lots of mediocre beer in coolers and hors d'oeuvres, however, so it affords me the opportunity to review something I ... read more

    Pros: Nice Bottles
    Cons: Taste, Aroma, Value, Experience

    Summary: Where do I start.....? I purchased this beer as an alternative to other domestic brews. Big mistake. Let me begin....I guess I will start with what is labeled on the bottle, or worse yet...the can. Rolling Rock calls itself an "Extra Pale Lager".....I ... read more

    Pros: Refreshing beer in a refreshing bottle.
    Cons: Not everyone agrees.

    Summary: I don't know of any other beer that evokes such passion. Between those who "Rock" and those who don't, especially in Pa., the battle has been raging for as long as I have been drinking beer (and I can't believe how long that has been). To illustrate ... read more

  • An American Classic...

    Sep 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: delicious, clean, no aftertaste
    Cons: not for the experienced, apparently

    Summary: Rolling Rock is not loved by everyone, but damnit, it should be. Brewed in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, it's a staple at every BBQ I throw or go to. I know people who make fun of me for drinking Rock, but my excuse is it's just a simple beer. None of that ... read more

  • Best American Lager

    Oct 19, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Low cost, easy availability, and it's oh so drinkable
    Cons: None

    Summary: Some of you might think I am exclusively a drinker of dark beers ( wrong ) and that I despise all mass-produced American beers ( wrong again ) . While I am not overly fond of the Big Three, there is one American lager style beer that I really enjoy. That ... read more

  • Worthless beer in its category, soda pop for drunks

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's Pennsylvania roots and history.
    Cons: Taste, appearance.

    Summary: This is not going to be one of those reviews that lingers on the details of how the taste hits my buds and all...I am writing a short review that may help people to avoid buying this bad beer. I never heard of Rolling Rock, until I read the book, "The ... read more

  • Rolling Rock - Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck . . .

    Dec 25, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's popular esp with the younger crowd.
    Cons: Smells worse than Fungyuns and tastes worse than parsnips.

    Summary: When I want a bottle of beer, I just go with Bud. For company or for holidays, I like to try new stuff and hopefully good stuff. This little buying habit did get me in trouble once. My kid asked why I got a different brand from ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice Bottle
    Cons: Skunky, over-priced, over-hyped crud.

    Summary: This beer is for folks that don't like Sam Adams, but don't want to look like an ordinary schmuck and buy Bud Lite. There is absolutely no other reason to buy this beer. It costs just as much as the semi-premium/import brews at the grocery ... read more

  • The "happy medium" beer

    Sep 22, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clean, fresh, pairs well w/ food, attractive bottle, most bars keep it in stock
    Cons: Can be pricey, hard to find in cases & even 12 packs, occasional skunky bottle

    Summary: I think I initially tried Rolling Rock because of it's heavy advertising & I had friends that actually drank the stuff. I found it to be VERY pleasing. I typically like dark beers and LOATHE macrobrews (Miller Lite is an exception). But I found this ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It's light
    Cons: It's light, no flavor and a bit skunky

    Summary: I'm not a fan of American light beer, but this is one of the bad ones. The only real reason to drink one of these is if the water that is available in the area is of poor quality. It's too light with a very simplistic flavor. It should sell for about ... read more

    Pros: taste, appearance.
    Cons: tends to taste skunky.

    Summary: This beer has a very bad taste despite being in a green bottle. This beer called Rolling Rock is made by Latrole Brewing Company.This is a very pricey beer if you want but willing to shell out $4.85 for a six pack bottle case. The flavor and taste ... read more

    May 15, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Fizzy, tasteless, not poisonous
    Cons: Tasteless and fizzy

    Summary: The Latrobe brewery was re-opened in 1933 after the dark days of prohibition. That's probably where they got the 33 logo deal. Who knows - who cares. The Rolling Rock brand was first brewed in 1939 and the rumour that this event was the catalyst ... read more

    Pros: Best tasting lager beer on the market...
    Cons: You get what you pay for with its halfhearted kick...

    Summary: If you read my Coors Light review, expect more of the same. Tell you the truth, I just got tired of trying to find tap quality in Guinness cans and bottles despite their highly-touted and very messy 'float cans'. Right now my big thing is lemonade malt ... read more

    Pros: Best-tasting low-priced beer since Red Dog...
    Cons: Better finish before it gets warm...

    Summary: Okay, so that's a pretentious title for a piece about cheap beer, but this brew in the green bottle will put a nice spin on your day every time. I was short on chump change one afternoon on the way back home when I pulled into one of those Exon Tiger ... read more

  • The Rock is not for me...

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A fair domestic lager, widely available, cool-looking bottle
    Cons: Taste worsens as the beer warms, it's yucky by the end.

    Summary: I first sampled Rolling Rock because it was so highly recommended by a buddy of mine. He loved the stuff. I was relatively new to the wonderful world of beer and was under the impression that Rolling Rock was one of those high-priced premium beers ... read more

    Pros: Light, Refreshing none bitter taste. Green bottle is also a nice touch
    Cons: Hasn't dethroned bud as the All-American beer yet!

    Summary: I as a relatively new beer enthusiast I have been doing a lot of sampling as of late, And this is the beer that fills the microbrewless weekends! Its light color and vibrant nose tell you right away that it's going to be crisp and most likely flavorful. ... read more

    Pros: Super smooth American lager with a plesant odor in painted longnecks
    Cons: Hard to find and expensive here in AZ.

    Summary: Is this possibly the best kept secret in American Lager beers?? I had the chance to drink one in April while my wife and I were in New Mexico for vacation. Went to a pizza place that did not serve Anheuser-Busch products!! I thought for a ... read more
