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.

Exactly what you are looking for in this type of beer. Finishes far cleaner than many of the other competitors.

shrubber85 (7960) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2014
Can (Tallboy - Patrickctenchi gets it right). Milky corn/barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Mildly sweet creamy corn and barley malt flavor. Medium body. Pleasant.

flemdawg (533) - Naples, Florida, 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 (4107) - 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.

BeerandBlues2 (10079) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Tap at Doherty’s East Avenue Pub. Pours clear yellow with a large, creamy white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, light corn notes and faint spicy hops. Flavor is sweet malt, light hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

labattslover74 (56) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2014
16 oz can into a frosted mug. dark yellow with with thin white head. Aroma of malt and corn. Taste of malt and corn as well with a sweet finish. One of the best beers I’ve tried in a while. 16 oz cans 2 for 2.22 is a steal!!!

Maxbier (401) - Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2014
Served very cold. Light yellow pour from 16oz can. Big white foamy head. Light bready aroma. Flavor is light malt and corn. Sweet malty corn finish. Adjunct lager is far from my favorite type of beer, that said this was drinkable when cold enough an better than the macro adjunct lagers I've tried.

Bottle. Clear straw color. Corn and biscuit aroma. Hit the spot after a long drive. Refreshing with a bite on the finish. Higher carbonation than necessary. Lingering harsh bitterness on the feel. Ok ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
