Rolling Rock Extra Pale

When I was in high school, I had a sweet Rolling Rock T-shirt that I got at a second hand store.  I wore it all the time, despite the fact that I'd never actually tried the beer.  In fact, I didn't have my first Rolling Rock Extra Pale until I was well into my 20s. So there--beer poseur, even as a teen.

Rolling Rock Extra Pale is an extremely light pale lager born in St. Louis, Missouri, where it is brought into the world by the Latrobe Brewing Co.  R.R.E.P comes in 473mL cans and contains a slightly anemic 4.5% alcohol. It pours a crystal clear pale straw colour, topped with a shock of white head. Rolling Rock has a pleasing aroma of straw and grain. The flavour is light and bright, with nice grain notes and a charmingly mild sweetness. In truth, I find this beer to be a bit watery. It goes down easily, but it's really pushing light beer status.

For a ass-produced American pale lager, Rolling Rock Extra Pale is pretty good, but only decent when compared to with some of the better pale lagers on the market.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
