Pours an apricot color with a nice white head that lasts. Light malt aroma. Mild malt taste that has some mild bite on the back side. VERY easy to drink. A bit thin though. Not a bad beer!

Draught. Gansett is really going out on a limb here. Nice effort and not a bad price point.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Narragansett Fest Lager has a thick, soapy, cream-colored head and a clear, minimally bubbly, amber appearance, with significant lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet & sour malt, and the flavor is of metal, the sweet, somewhat sour brown bread taste, no bitterness, and indistinguishable grain. Mouthfeel is low medium, and Narragansett Fest Lager finishes crisp, fairly refreshing, mostly dry, and metallic. Overall, this is an inferior fall beer. RJT

Poured from a 16 ounce can thanks to bytemesis. Thanks! Pours a translucent copper color with a large froth of white head. The aroma has some doughy caramel characteristics that cover up a fuel note. Just barely odd. Tastes caramelly and nutty with just a noticeable drying of the tongue on the finish. It’s alright.

Tallboy can. Clear burnt orange with a fairly thick tan head. A lot of lacing. Aroma is basic caramel and roasted malts, no surprises. Flavor starts toffee/caramel sweet, gets a little bread-y, ends with a really mild hoppy bite. Silky mouthfeel, low carbonation. Pretty typical for the style, although the can is nice.

Can. Pours bright orange clear with a medium off white head that dissipates leaving clumpy lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, candy corn, grass. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter finish. Fairly full bodied and oily or soapy in the mouth.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice packaging (16 oz can), and smart appearance (orangy body with thick fluffy beige head) does not measure up in the flavor department. Suffers from an inordinate amount if noble twang both in the aroma and flavor. Nice mellow toasted malt profile. Somewhat watery. A bit of alcohol warming in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber. Slight alcohol and dried fruit notes in the aroma. Mild alcohol and fruitcake on the palate. Some slight hop bitterness in teh backbone. A pretty standard american marzen - about middle of the pack.
