4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz brown bottle from Tiger Town in Gardiner. Dirty yellow (not quite gold) translucent body with a half inch of off-white head that quickly dissipates. Smells malty with hints of hops and adjuncts. Tastes sweet with just a hint of hop bite toward the finish, with adjuncts playing a bit of a role too. Very clean finish. Definitely the most flavorful American Macro/Pale Lager I’ve had. Lighter in mouthfeel but not watery or thin by any means. Extremely drinkable. I’m actually impressed with this one. And the combination of drinkability, good flavor, and price make this one a beer I’ll be buying regularly.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ugh. Clear, pale straw color with a small white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma was of sweet corny malts and skunk. The flavor was of sweet, sticky corn with an obvious serving of various cheap adjuncts. Watery body with a sticky, corn syrup finish. Awful beer. Drain pour.

So this is it....the FAMOUS Narragansett beer...long have I waited for this moment....AT LAST ---- OK, Actuallly, this is a pretty avg lager. its not too bad, but why is it so famous???? Its made in Rochester not Narrangansett RI...by the way, strong flavor of CORN and METAL HIGH carbonation and BITTER BITTER aftertaste. .90 cents per bottle, so I’m not complaining.....

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
16 fl. oz (US) can. Pours yellow. Foamy head with a lot of carbonation. Aroma of straw and metal. Watery. Not a lot of body to it. It was not as atrocious as I was led to believe. Better than some of its counterparts (i.e., Schlitz & Schaefer).

I was in the Cape Cod area and was excited to see this one in the beer cooler. It was well-carbonated but quite weak. I was disappointed as I had always heard this was the legendary beer to drink when in New England.

On tap at the Seaport Hotel in Boston.
I had not had a "Gansett" since the Budweiser beer strike in 1974. Narragansett was the only beer available at most of the bars on Cape Cod that summer.
The new Gansett wasn’t bad. I would drink it again if I see it on tap.

Since I live in Narragansett it’s hard to avoid drinking this at least monthly. It really doesn’t differ much from other cheap american lagers but it isn’t terrible. The flavor is maybe a bit more complex than Bud/PBR etc. Oh, and it’s pretty cheap and comes in sweet red 16oz cans. Woo! Gansett!

Cold 12oz bottle: Pours a clear straw color with a small foamy alabaster head. Aroma is of sweet malt and hay. Taste is of sweet malt and nice yeast. Crisp, light bodied and well carbonated. Ending is watery and faint.
