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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
St. Petersburg, Fl - Shep’s Deli - 12 oz bottle. Pours a pale golden with a thin and quickly dissipating white head. Typical cheap lager aroma with with some wet paper bag notes that always reminds me of walking through a liquor store as a kid for some reason. Some honey sweetness makes its way into the flavor with a bit of grassiness. Mouthfeel is about on par with most pale lagers - thin and not very crisp. About what I expected. Would drink this over Bud Light - especially if I was in Rhode Island where it is originally from.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very clean taste for something with so much flavour. A prototypical lager. Not too heavy. A great, somewhat rusty colour. From the bottle is recommended.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
16 oz can, gift from kiefdog. Pours a transparent golden color with a small white head. Typical, yet heavy lager aroma, it is grassy and smells nice. The flavor is pretty bad. It was from a can, so it has a slight metal tint and it is yeasty, bready, and watery with a bad finish. I do not like this beer, but it had promise.
