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.

On tap at the House of Beer. Pours pale yellow with a medium white head. Has an interesting peanut aroma. Clean and crisp. No vegetable scents or flavors as seen so often is crap beer. High Falls got this one right. Very pleasant with no mistakes. Fizzy palate. It is what it is.

Serving: Draft at Willimantic brewpub.
Damn, just when I thought I had a RI tick! Oh well. It pours a pale gold color with a foamy, white head. The nose is light with a whiff of grain and not much else. The taste has a little malt sweetness, a touch of grain, and very little hops. Light and soft on the palate though with a short, clean finish. A step up from BMC but it’s not very dynamic.

drpimento (2863) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Another American/world adjunct lager, although this one has a little more of the good stuff. Poured with a large foamy frothy thick white head and some lace. Color is a clear gold. Aroma is grain malt cereal bit of hop. Flavor is like aroma and has a pronounced bittersweetness. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like body and of medium length. Could do worse, I guess.

Nice and somewhat sweet. Very good roasted maltiness with a light cereal feel.

Ratman197 (12544) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smoth. Flavors of bread and spicy hops with a smooth dry finish. Actually better than I expected.

Pours bright yellow gold with a creamy white head, lots of lacing, persistent but becomes thin. Lot’s of bubbles Lightly sweet and bready pale pilsener malt, light twinge of noble hops. Taste is basically the same. Sweetish aftertaste. Inoffensive but I wish it had a bit more crispness in the mouth. This is a nostalgic brand. Being that I am not a native of New England I can say it’s no better or no worse than a lot of industrial lagers but doesn’t particularly appeal to me.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest (disclaimer - memory somewhat blurred after perhaps a few too many samples) Even though I knew better I tried some anyway. Yup. Same as I remember it from 30 years ago. Why would they keep this brand alive?

Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Terrible skunky and metallic nose. Taste is pretty foul. Industrial macro pilsener that you would not want to drink for any reason.
