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.

16 oz can shared by a friend, thanks Mike! Clear golden straw yellow with off-white head. Aromas of corn, wheat, light skunk, malt. Tastes of corn, wheat, light skunk. Light body with a dry finish. A couple ounces was more than enough.

The aroma was very enticing, but, ultimately, it just taste like a cheap lager. I can't really say much more than that. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big can in Queens, NYC. Sweet corny aroma, metallic body, a bit richer ’premium’ lager taste. Not terribly offensive but not good in any other way. richer honey-malt body. Meh.

Normal cheaper lager smell and taste...smooth and quite light...a bit of bitterness without any sweetness...mild, no depth, straightforward.. Boring

Actually pretty decent for an American mass produced lager. Does not have skunk aftertaste like many of its peers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

REDDOGICE (243) - nantucket, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Had at Warren's Lobster House in Kittery Maine. No head to speak of and there was something off about this beer. It almost tastes similar to PBR. Went surprisingly well with fried seafood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
