So this is it....the FAMOUS Narragansett beer...long have I waited for this moment....AT LAST ---- OK, Actuallly, this is a pretty avg lager. its not too bad, but why is it so famous???? Its made in Rochester not Narrangansett RI...by the way, strong flavor of CORN and METAL HIGH carbonation and BITTER BITTER aftertaste. .90 cents per bottle, so I’m not complaining.....

16 fl. oz (US) can. Pours yellow. Foamy head with a lot of carbonation. Aroma of straw and metal. Watery. Not a lot of body to it. It was not as atrocious as I was led to believe. Better than some of its counterparts (i.e., Schlitz & Schaefer).

I was in the Cape Cod area and was excited to see this one in the beer cooler. It was well-carbonated but quite weak. I was disappointed as I had always heard this was the legendary beer to drink when in New England.

On tap at the Seaport Hotel in Boston.
I had not had a "Gansett" since the Budweiser beer strike in 1974. Narragansett was the only beer available at most of the bars on Cape Cod that summer.
The new Gansett wasn’t bad. I would drink it again if I see it on tap.

Since I live in Narragansett it’s hard to avoid drinking this at least monthly. It really doesn’t differ much from other cheap american lagers but it isn’t terrible. The flavor is maybe a bit more complex than Bud/PBR etc. Oh, and it’s pretty cheap and comes in sweet red 16oz cans. Woo! Gansett!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear straw color with a small foamy alabaster head. Aroma is of sweet malt and hay. Taste is of sweet malt and nice yeast. Crisp, light bodied and well carbonated. Ending is watery and faint.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Glad to see this back in Rhode Island, though sadly its not made here anymore and is made in NY by a contract brewery. Dirty golden pour. Large bubbles, fizzy bright white head. Taste is bitter, with a particularly strong finish for this style, with some hops. Good to almost great for a pale lager, and has more bite that most.

This was surprisingly smooth for a relatively cheap and hoppy taste. Very smooth and grainy. Defiantely worth drinking. (not metallic from bottles as previous reviewer noted) It is about as cheap as the macro brews and a superior beer in virtually every single way. Definately a good blind buy.
