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.

TBone (13286) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Tap at Mission Dolores, Brooklyn. Normally I would not choose this kind of lager in a good beer bar but I noticed that this is a chance to get my first beer from Rhode Island.. at least kind of. Golden color, small white head. Grainy nose. Light to medium-bodied. Flavor is grainy with some sweetcorn and light citrus hoppyness and hints of fruityness. Decent for 16oz/4 usd.

sudomorph (774) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
473ml can. Pours a clear, pale yellow with a half finger, white head. Aroma has slightly sweet notes of grain, and traditional hops. Taste matches the aroma. Grain and faint, traditional hops. Medium body Amy carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall pretty standard but that?s not a bad thing.

flemdawg (537) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Corny, cereal aroma with a whiff of sugary sweetness. Pale golden body with a large white head of medium sized bubbles with a fair amount of lacing down the glass. Fairly typical pale lager flavors of cereal, and grass clippings. Very watery but a clean finish.

Patrickctenchi (4402) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Can: Clear gold with a cloud-like, puffy white head. Corn, grain scent. Taste is sweet, grain malt , corn...a little grass and honey. Honestly....a pretty good Lager... Drinks a little heavy, and a bit on the sweet side.
