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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Transparent golden-straw color. Aroma makes me suspicious of adjuncts. Crisp and watery. Half decent at best, this one might have been nice for Rochester circa 1967, but it can’t compete with anything even remotely quality these days. Along the same lines as Yuengling or Rolling Rock.
