COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Narragansett Brewing Co. was founded in 1890 by six German immigrants with a passion for European-style lagers and ales. Throughout our proud history, lager beers have remained our signature style. We are pleased to offer you this Bohemian-style pilsner, a craft-brewed tribute to the original lager. Our Bohemian Pilsner delivers an enjoyable malt profile with flavorful, aromatic hop characterisitics from Nothern Brewer and Hallertau hops.

This beer falls between the big brewery American pilsners and the craft pilsners in terms of flavor. Honestly, it is as close to a tasting like a true Czech pilsner as I have tasted outside of the Czech Republic. The aroma and and bitterness are right. The beer is lacking head, but what lacing it leaves sticks to the glass. It is darker in color than a Budweiser and more bitter, but not nearly as bitter as American pilsners being made by US craft brewers. $9 for 6 tallboys isn’t a terrible deal. Is it worth spending more than Budwieser? Or worth spending a little more for something a little tastier? I’ll have another and decide later.

The pour of this beer is special: thick, light orange swirls of activity slowly build a remarkably dense and high head of luscious beer foam. Before one even takes the first whiff, you know this is a high quality beer. The foam lasts....it stays around a while. Taste is full and thoroughly lager-like. Malt and subtle tea notes are present in the finish. Finish is slightly sweet, but not like a Munich beer. It is a touch more dry than that. Very clean and refreshing, yet flavorful. The main flaw of this beer is not anything with its execution, as it is a surprisingly fine beer; the main issue is that this isn’t really a pilsner, Bohemian or otherwise. This reminds me of a perfectly executed pre-prohibition lager recipe, or maybe a dortmunder. This beer is a great value, too, at $9 for a six of pounders. I will keep a six of this in my house at all times, at least in the warmer months. Great stuff.

Clear golden body with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of grains, corn. Straight forward with notes of corn and sweet lager yeast. Light bodied with a tangy finish. Decent.

mansquito (4069) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 26, 2015
New Beer Distributors, NYC can ($2ish): Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is light fruitiness, one hops, and mostly malt. Taste is not really either a czech or a german pils. It kind of falls outside. Definitely a step above pale lager. Not bad though. Nothing off in this.

poisoneddwarf (1936) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAR 23, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2015 16 oz can, thanks Drake! Rhode Island tick. Aroma is dough, cooked vegetables, orange candy circus peanuts. Pours nearly clear golden with a nice fluffy white head with great retention; leaves groovy patterns of lace. Taste is sweet and malty with faint grassy hop character and bitterness in the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body. Too sweet and malty for me.

AirForceHops (4415) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 22, 2015
16 oz pounder can. Mostly clear gold in color with some lasting head in a lager glass. Aroma is straw, cereal grain and mild herbal hops.

Body is lighter yet correct for the style. Flavor shows the Pilsner malt, light herbal hops without much bitterness. Very fast fading bitterness after the sip. Grainy aftertaste. All in all, pretty much what it should be.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 12, 2015
16 ounce can from Greenlife Grocery, Asheville. Pours golden with fine floating particles. Large frothy white head, good head retention and lacing. Aroma of doughy malt, grassy hops and a bit of apple. The taste is bready malt, apple, snappy grassy hops, mild notes of apple and caramel. Medium bodied, good balance, moderate lingering bitterness, crisp.

blklab2007 (2086) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 10, 2014
16 oz can poured a dark golden in color with a thick one finger head that retained well. Aroma has aged hops, grains, and some bready yeast. Mouth feel is medium and the carbonation light. Flavor does have some malts, mild aged hops, a touch of bitterness, and grains. More full and malted than a typical pills.

Draft at What Cheer, from notes. Clear yellow color, medium fluffy white head. Aroma of bready cereal. Taste is crisp straw. OK.
