Rolling in the Deep
I first heard about Rolling Rock from my dad, a man who enjoys beer and knows more about it than I do. So when I was down visiting my parents in Florida (the same visit when I went to beer heaven in the form of an off-license) he offered me a Rolling Rock. Little did I know how it would soon become my pint of choice in Canada.
Rolling Rock is an American beer that prides itself on being small-town. Now I'm not much of a small town girl, but if this is what comes out of small towns, I could be converted. Their small town charm seems to working though because this beer is finding its way into bars and restaurants across Canada and the US (and maybe the world for all I know).
I don't know if it's the name or the green bottle, but this beer tastes like nature's beer to me. I just imagine it coming from a beautiful, clear beer waterfall and they just bottle it straight from the beer stream. I realize this is not realistic or possible (but if this did happen in Rolling Rock's hometown, I'd move there in a heartbeat) but it's the best way for me to describe the taste of Rolling Rock.
It's fresh, crisp and a nice clean taste. Not too strong, it's a great pint for a hot afternoon on a patio if you are looking for that 'ahhhhh'-refreshing moment.
