Ahh, the stanky flavor of adjunct. Corn is it? Rice? Who cares, it’s certainly not an old-school craft-brewed beer like they try and claim. If this is the same recipe as 2 generations ago like the distributors tell you, someones grandpops was drinking crap beer.

16 ounce can from City Market (September 2007), served at fridge temperature from a Samuel Smiths pint glass. The snowy, frothy head is immense and lasting, though it laces little as it falls into the superclear pale golden body….faint toasty aroma, a bit of dry corn, , uhhhh….excessively sweet, syrupy body, low carbonation and little in the way of malt (to go nicely with the nonexistent hops I guess)….drinkable but pointless, with a watery finish as the syrupiness fades.

12oz brown bottle from Tiger Town in Gardiner. Dirty yellow (not quite gold) translucent body with a half inch of off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells malty with hints of hops and adjuncts. Tastes sweet with just a hint of hop bite toward the finish, with adjuncts playing a bit of a role too. Very clean finish. Definitely the most flavorful American Macro/Pale Lager I’ve had. Lighter in mouthfeel but not watery or thin by any means. Extremely drinkable. I’m actually impressed with this one. And the combination of drinkability, good flavor, and price make this one a beer I’ll be buying regularly.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ugh. Clear, pale straw color with a small white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma was of sweet corny malts and skunk. The flavor was of sweet, sticky corn with an obvious serving of various cheap adjuncts. Watery body with a sticky, corn syrup finish. Awful beer. Drain pour.

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.
