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.

I would venture to say that this is one of the best light lagers around. It is one of the only canned beers I can recall craving another after my first. typical light yellow color and grain smell. A surprising sweetness to this and not as over done with carbonation like a bud. Hope this gets offered in more bars in place of national beers soon.

Totally normal American lager from a regional brewer. This is the local ice cold refresher for much of New England, despite its being contract brewed in NY. There is nothing spectacular about it...but it isn’t horrible, so long as you understand what it is and why you are drinking it. This brew carries a lot of the "grandpa beer" mystique that many people are into right now. Just like people from Baltimore love their ’Boh, and the resurgence of other old labels such as PBR, Old Style, and Olympia, this old time favorite is born anew. It is comfortable, familiar(even if you aren’t from Cape Cod), and an easy summer guzzler.

Tall boy can. Aroma of straw and bar. Pours light yellow, with foamy white head. So clear "You could read a novel through this beer." Metallic, malty, sweetish, light and weak. This is a nostalgic drink for me, I like it while knowing that it is bad.

12 oz. bottle. Here’s to sleeping w/ bowl legged women! Viva Quint! I actually had this in Cape Cod a few years ago but didn’t rate it. Pours a gold color with a light white head that fade rather quickly. Malty, slightly metallic, slightly on the skunk side, but at least there is tangible flavor, faint but it exists. A fair amount of carbonation. About what I expected.

The only reason I drank this one last night was because I’m a big Jaws fan and Capt. Quint drinks that stuff. It was a boring drinking experience. Run of the mill type of lager.

A truly poor experience. Pale yellow color. Smells of light grain and malts. A little bit skunked. Tastes of malts and dirt. Not that good at all. Too bad.

Light-bodied, pale yellow color with alot of carbonation. Grainy smell and taste, but that was expected. Definitely refreshing though.

From the maker of Kochs Golden Anniversary and Genesee Cream Ale! I can’t wait. 16oz can. Poured a clear pale gold color with a white head. The nose and flavor were typical of a pale lager; hay, pale malts, and a touch of grass. Delicately sweet and light bodied It is what it is.

I didnt’ feel this going down my throat, but I did feel it swishing around in my belly. This’ll fill you up quick. At Beerfest Miami 09
