COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Note:
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.

Foul! I got this in the half quart cans from a cheesy Liquor store in Southbridge Massachusetts. I had hoped it would be good because it has a long history in New England. It was sour tasting and without a doubt cheap to the nose and on the tongue. The most offensive I have tried so far of the low cost "Piss beers" pass this one by

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2006 16 OZ. Can: Maybe it’s the other beers talking. Maybe this is better than PBR. I had it in a Duvel glass at cellar temp (as I now usually do) and it wasn’t more than half bad. I bet if it was cold it would be good as a lawn mower beer.

Surprising flavor from this classic company. The frenchman likes it better than bud...it may be, but that’s not saying much.

Suprising flavor for a cheap American lager, some say it’s better than bud light!

A good solid beer. No complaints, except that I don’t see it around enough.
