1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slight chill haze. Straw body. Aroma of straw, honey and slight fruitiness. Light body. Tastes like straw and moss. Pretty bland, a little bit grainy. Pretty far from scintillating.

12 oz bottle. Pale yellow color with small white head. Nose is earthy and hint of spices, aweful. Initial taste is grainy, spice and touch citrus. Hop character is barely noticeable. Light bodied and crisp.

On tap, Eli Cannon’s. Pours pale yellow with a small head and crystal clear body. Aroma is VERY corny and unappealing. Palate is crisp and light, almost frightened of being noticed. Flavor had grass, pilsner-type hops, and average malt presence. Entirely forgettable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Its baaaaack. Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. For a lager I was impressed. Gold pour. Aroma is sweet, but not cloying. Grains and bread show through but not in a sickening way. Flavor is crisp with some sweetness and a bit of balance. Not half bad.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty drinkable lager without much character. I sensed a hint of grass and the carbonation was enjoyable. Not much to it.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I enjoyed a nice 16oz can of this much-anticipated beer at The Spoke in Amherst, MA. The aroma was mild and bland, a light grain and corny hop aroma with some barley character. A clear gold color, with a smallish foamy white head. A decent sour-bitter flavor with some lighter hop character, not too bad. A medium body with ample carbonation and wetness, drier finish. Overall it was a bit better than I expected, not a bad cheap beer.

Draft: Pours a light amber color with small white head that disappears quickly. Clean, light tasting lager. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2008 Narragansett has been around for a long time. While it is before my day, "Gansett" as it affectionately is called shall bring back nostalgic memories of good times and younger days for a lot of older beer drinkers. Narragansett is using the original recipe, and they even acquired the original brewmaster to ensure lager perfection.
’Gansett pours a nice clear golden color with a very impressive head. A good two fingers at least, tight with bubbles, and creamy smooth. Very drinkable, leaving essences of spice, lemon, and a smidgen of grain from the malts. The hops aren’t overpowering, adding just the right bright crispness that makes my tongue tingle and salivate for more. Of course, I must answer such a desperate cry for help as I grab my glass. A steady stream of bubbles floats to the surface, maintaining and nice thin layer of foam on the top. Beautiful.
Clean, smooth, easily drinkable, with a perfect balance of flavor, Narragansett lager is a prime example of the lager style.
