Pint can. Sweet grainy aroma with some spicy hop notes. Clear light golden with rocky white head. Sweet grain and corn notes in flavor along with a light spicy hop character. Medium to light body and mouth with prickly carbonation. Finish is medium sweetness, clean, with a slight cardboard quality.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This sample not brewed at City Brewery in Madison WI, but at Genesee Brewery in Rochester NY. Pours a pale golden with a sweet pale malt aroma and a substantial small bead white head that laces the glass. Taste is fairly pedestrian, but quite refreshing. Mostly a sweet malt, corn grits and bread dough flavor. Not bad.

Picked up a 12 pack @ a liquor store in Cromwell, CT for thirteen bucks. In retrospect the price was a bit steep, I think the ten dollar range for this beer would be adequate. I liked the retro style label, just need to add ’PALE" next to the ’LAGER’ in bold type on the bottom of the label. Label also said the beer was brewed in Rochester, NY. I did like the New England-centric puzzle caps. Drank ’Gansett over a month ice cold out of the bottle and poured in a glass. Even shared a couple bottles with friends. Beer looked great when poured into a 7 ounce glass, lemon colored body, and great head/lacing. Light hops, grainy, total lawnmower pale lager. Last time I had Narragnsett was 1990 @ Brown University in tall boy cans. Too long ago to remember which version was better. I know these labels look a lot better than the 1990 version.

The beer pours a dashing golden color with remarkable clarity. A big white head disappears as quickly as it forms. A very clean aroma, as expected with the style, faint bready pale malt scent with hints of mineral and lemon. The taste is excellently crisp with a light body for easy drinking. Cereal grain flavor throughout with soft bread crust and a semi sweet finish. Paired excellently with Mahi-Mahi and tangy chow mien noodles.

Had this as part of a Narragansett-Genesy Cream Ale smack down taste test.
The aroma was almost nothing. Dead. That also means the absence of any skunky type tones.
The palate was a watery and mild carbonation.
Nothing more than your average light, cheeper beer. Maybe something to mix in to the summer picnic when bulk beer is required?

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear, light yellow with a decent head. Mostly reminded me of a BMC with a bit more flavor to it. A decent lager, but it would be low on my list of recommendations.
