UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Probably better than most mild and light American lagers, but let us not pretend there is anything memorable about this beer other than its history. An easy drinker and they probably get easier the more you drink. More warmth than Bud. I think my local store had a placard noting this beer as being rated 93. The scale must have been 500. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer has a lot of history in the region and is still very popular with those who have been around for a while. It is a pretty mild lager which probably explains its longevity. There isn’t much malt flavor and the hops are minimal.

Ah, the classic Gansett. I’ve never enjoyed the smell of this, there always seems to be some funky notes lurking beneath the lager crispiness. The appearance is a light yellow with a good pile of head. The flavor is certainly a big step beyond some of other adjunct lagers, and it doesn’t get gross if you leave it out of the fridge for five minutes. Nice mouthfeel, plenty of fizz and good ’drinkability’.

From 16oz can.
Trying to find an inexpensive light-tasting beer to enjoy on the beach later this summer. Still looking. Not a bad beer, but nothing very different than Bud or other generic American brew, quality-wise.

On the upper end of the American light lager category. A little hay, some corn sweetness, and a crisp aftertaste. Tried in NYC in 2013.

Aroma is grainy malts and light citrus. The flavor is grainy malts, mild sweetness, light citrus and a beery/mildly bitter finish. Not bad for a pale lager.

I actually really enjoyed this beer, nice and crisp with a decent balance of the malt with tiny amounts of hop flavor

Hey Neighbor...it’s ahrr bee-ya! The rescue of the Gansett name from the heap of defunct regional beer brands, almost all owned by Pabst somehow. Heavy aroma of grain, corn and other vegetal elements. Nary a hop in sight, but that’s okay for this one. It has a yellow copper color, looks heavier than it’s counterparts. Kind of a dirty sweet taste, nothing profound or sugary, just enough to tell you it’s a lager. Notably heavy it the body. Don’t believe the reviews that call it a doppelganger for PBR...try both consecutively and judge for yourself. Of all the beer out there, this has the most nostalgia attached to it for me, and best of all, not owned by AB Inbev, SABMiller or even old Jim Koch. Okay, made by contract-only Melanie...let’s get that brewery going in Providence. My 1000th rating.

Enjoyed on tap at Improv Asylum in Boston, MA after eating some great lobster rolls. This just wasn't very good, bland lager with very light crispness.

Move over PBR there is a new hipster beer in town. Light pale yellow. Little nose, little flavor. A waste of calories.
