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.

From tap at Jacob Wirth as Jakes House Lager Narragansett. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy and hops fruity. Grassy, slight hayish and mild yeasty. Bitter and slight citrusy finish.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Slight chill haze. Straw body. Aroma of straw, honey and slight fruitiness. Light body. Tastes like straw and moss. Pretty bland, a little bit grainy. Pretty far from scintillating.

Can from Half Time. Labled "Official Beer of the Clam". Poor clams. Pours gold with a 2 finger foamy white head. Very bready aroma with a hint of grass. Flavor is bready. 12 IBUs might be stretching it. Clean tho, and arguably a little refreshing. Not sorry to have tried it.

A: The pour is a clear, pale straw color with a short-lived white head. S: Not too much of a nose on this beer. Pretty light in general with some light grass notes and some sweet corn. There is a bit of apple juice in there, too. T: Not surprisingly, tastes like any other adjunct lager out there. Heavy on the adjuncts with little to no malt flavor. Grassy hops with a light bitterness on the finish. Sweet corn and apple juice. M: Light in body with a high level of carbonation. O: I suppose it’s a little better than Coors Light, but it’s not like I would make a big deal about this beer.

Leighton (10542) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
Can. Pours a light copper with a thin, fizzy head. Aroma of light, sweet malts with hay and grains. Sweet, malty flavor with only hints of hop bite. Pretty crisp finish. Not too bad, really.

Tmoney99 (10470) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2010
Can. Poured clear pale color with a medium frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grainy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where not met with a below average beer.

Ratman197 (9548) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of bread and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smoth. Flavors of bread and spicy hops with a smooth dry finish. Actually better than I expected.

Its baaaaack. Poured at the Jupiter brewfest. For a lager I was impressed. Gold pour. Aroma is sweet, but not cloying. Grains and bread show through but not in a sickening way. Flavor is crisp with some sweetness and a bit of balance. Not half bad.
