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.

Soft white head atop the usual macro lager color. More of a mouth than most macro, a subtle yeast note, and no offensive aftertaste which plagues similar brews. Taste finishes long for the style as well.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Courtesy Tony at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy wheat yellow. Corny aroma, grain. Flavors of corn, grain, some slight cider. Wheat, too. Pretty much a pilsener. Overall, decent for the style.

16 oz can. Clear, pale gold with a big white head. Sweet, corny, grainy nose, a bit medicinal. Overly sweet corn flavor, a bit of grass, UGH. Reminds me of a Steelback... Not good. Drain pour - and I finished the Steelbacks...

Picked this up more as a goof, but lets try it. Pours out of the 16oz can pale yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, grain, rice, and corn. Taste is malty, corn maybe a hint of sweetness but thats about it. Doesn’t leave anything behind in the finish. Maybe thats the key to this, if it has no aftertaste, I’ll forget the taste and have to drink more.

It pours into the glass with a remarkably faint aroma. There are notes of rice, as in rice crisp cereal, and other vague cereal graininess. There’s also a sharp huskiness to go with that. It starts with a firm presence up front with plenty of carbonation, and seemingly no shortage of malt, except heading towards the end, which dries out and finishes empty. There’s a lingering grainy sugary quality, as well as just a touch of bittering hop. The appearance is crystal clear, residing somewhere between straw and gold, and it manages to produce a full white pitted foamy head.

Not too much to say about this one. Pretty unexceptional, and I doubt it really has a tribal affiliation. At least the bottle is sort of nice.

has an after taste that I can only describe as turpentine and leaves a oil like coating that you can feel on your tongue for hours

This is definitely my cheap-ass crappy beer of choice. That’s my RI pride talking!

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 En cannette, prise à Hull, Nantasket Beach, MA. Bière d’apparance fantastique au premier service. Jaune dorée, claire, brillante, avec de grosses bulles qui collent aux bords du verre. Col blanc très mince. Vraiment belle. Le nez est très sucré, parfum de riz, de mais, sans houblon ou presque. Très léger parfum de pin. Goût définitivement trop sucré, faible houblon, pas assez amère... Arrière-goût de pain dorée et de levures. Bière ordinaire, ce pourrait être une bière d’occasion si elle n’était pas tant sucrée...

16oz. can into pint. Pours a bright yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is heavy of corn and grains. Flavor of corn with a slight, bitter finish. Has a light, watered-down mouthfeel. Drinkable, but nothing to jump up and down about.
