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.

This will give me my Rhode Island tick, despite being brewed in Brochester, Ny by Genny. Never the less, pours straw yellow with foam head that disipates quickly. Ample visible carbonation. Nose of a light grassiness, slight corn, and light malt. Taste starts with balanced bitterness and grass, corn on the finish. Body is light, but not thin or watery. Cool beans dood!

alobar (3057) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Pours a golden yellow color-clear with aroma of grain and corn. Okay flavor with grain, corn, and some yeast. Not great, but better than Budweiser.

About what you’d expect for the style. It’s better than Budweiser/Miller/Coors, but that’s really the best I can say about it.

Aroma of corn and hay. Taste and palate has some yeastiness to it with a distinct grain bite somewhat akin to the cream ale style. It’s a pretty decent lager beer! Overall for an American adjunct lager ’Gansett has a decent taste and does not taste like the BMC crowd.

Can. Colour...pale-gold with a thin white head. Nose...husky, lightly malty and faintly hoppy. Palate...fairly frothy with cut corn, dried grass and Timothy hay. The finish is fairly clean and slightly sweet.

Looks like the first piss in the morning. Tastes like apples and corn. Served this at my wedding at my father’s request.

TATE (362) - Lubec, Maine, USA - APR 27, 2015
Pours a golden color with minimal head. Minimal aroma of sweet almost floral aroma but not from any hops. Not much flavor at all but not offensive and it finishes dry. Can’t detect any hops except a touch on the aftertaste. Not awful for a cheap beer.

gripweed57 (949) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Honey gold color. Large creamy white head. Grainy metallic nose. Upfront flavor mirrors the aroma with a touch of floral hops. This is the atypical independent American lager, much like Rolling Rock used to be. Light bodied and refreshing. Good for when your planning to throw back several on a warm afternoon or evening. Nothing fancy, just a decent value priced light lager.

Eructoblaster (3336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Can - 473ml. Boring blond body with average carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Fair, fresh, malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its bland corny taste carries some bready notes. Ends with a short herbal/corny finish. Useless, but the vintage can is cool.

Luvystypotables (1016) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2015
Aroma of grains and nuts pours a golden colour with a short lasting white well laced head. Grainy taste with a hint of yeast and nuts. Light body with a grainy finish and a hint of bitterness.
