COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Roll out the Barrel: 5.0% Alcohol by Volume and 12 IBUs. A classic American lager and the workhorse of the Gansett stable. Available all year long in bottle, can and on tap! Quality Supreme: We brew our lager with six row malt, seedless hops, corn from Iowa, our lager strain (the same one the brewery has depended on since just after Prohibition), and the purest water from Lakes Ontario and Hemlock. Taste & Enjoy: This beer is brewed just right for drinking—crisp and refreshing. It’s got more flavor than other premium lagers, yet it’s one of the most drinkable beers in the world. Narragansett has the highest rating of all domestic premium lagers on BeerAdvocate.com, and received the bronze medal for American Lagers at the 2008 World Beer Cup The History: The Lager is old reliable. It was the first beer brewed by “The Original Six” back in 1890, the bestselling beer in New England from the 1930s to the 1970s, and the official beer of the Boston Red Sox from 1944-1975.

Note:
Contract brewed by High Falls Brewing Co. for since 2007, the production moving to City Brewing in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 2009 and then to the City Brewing plant in Latrobe, PA in 2010. It is anticipated that production may be returned to Rhode Island in the future.

ordybill (1152) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear pale golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma is your basic AAL with some extra grain tossed in. The flavor caught me off guard, it was really good not just for an AAL but compared to any style. Really refreshing with a crisp flavor of grain and no aftertaste. This is an excellent beer.

gunnar (7394) - Sandnes, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2015
Can from a trade with Palme. Pours clear golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is grainy, sweet wort. Taste is sweet, high carbonated, very weak soft and dry finish.

ffbot (263) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Solid, solid pale lager right here. Pours a gold color, no real head. Aroma of yeast, corn. Taste is corn, grass, hay, malt. Compared against the big beers that are similar style, this is way better. Tastes like a good default cheap beer for when the budget is low.

slowrunner77 (8994) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 22, 2015
pretty clean and refreshing, if not quite breaking the pale lager mold. Agree w the percentages...low for a beer, very high in the pale lager class.

Slubgob (283) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Tall boy into mug. Golden yellow, good white head. Looks pretty carbonated. Mild corn suggestion in nose, typical cheap American lager scent. Light in the mouth, more fading notes of cereal, just a touch of body. Mild hops. Finishes quick and light. Satisfying inexpensive domestic brew, better than bud, cos, etc.

C’est malheureux que la mousse ne fasse qu’une brève apparition. La bière est d’un blond doré. Ça sent le malt et le miel. Il y a des saveurs maltées dans la plus répandue des façons. C’est sucré. Un peu poivré. Un peu herbacé. Merci mon frère! Allons affronter "Jaws" maintenant. (1590-180915)

Pours a pale gold with a thick white head. Aroma of lager yeast, biscuit and creamed corn. Taste is light corn, biscuit and lager yeast. Light and smooth, great lager. I don’t understand the low ratings on this, it is what they claim it to be. Great representation of the style!
