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.

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.

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

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 2, 2009
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

Not a bad lager. Got it because my fiance is from that town in RI. Tasted like a regular pale lager. Nothing special, but could be a good session beer.

Oakes (13139) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
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.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2009
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.

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 10, 2009
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.

daknole (10035) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2009
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.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 27, 2008
Bottle. Sweet aroma. Pale golden body, small white head. Sweet bready flavor, not much bitterness. Drinkable.

Pretty drinkable lager without much character. I sensed a hint of grass and the carbonation was enjoyable. Not much to it.
