We brew our light beer to the same high standards that our founders established way back in 1890. Itís no surprise that íGansett has been the beer of choice around here for more than a century. If youíre not drinking Narragansett, youíre not from New England.

16 oz can. Pretty nice light pale lager at a hot isomer BBQ. Not a particularly good beer pretty easy drinking. Light toast. Cereal. Not much in the wag of hops. Fine.

16oz can, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Clean, plain aroma of light malt. Flavors are clean! Woohoo! Light, seltzery malt flavors give this a "Cincinnati-style" sensation. This may be the best pale lager Iíve ever had, as itís fresh, clean, super drinkable, and has enough flavor to not make me think Iím drinking water. I prefer this to the normal Narragansett Lager. This may become a summer fall back.

this is what a substandard light beer would taste like. lots of corn and rice adjuncts, little hops and a strong malt taste. not much else.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into pint glasses and pilseners. The head lasts way longer in the pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice clear yellow color with the carbonation rising at a decent pace. There was a moderate amount of carbonation seen rising. The smell was a light sort of sweet corn. The taste was mainly sweet and didnít have much else going on. It sat super light on the palate and had a decent light carbonation running about it. Overall, decent beer for the style. I canít say anything bad about and nor can I say anything to hype it up.

Draft. Complete garbage juice. Sweet. Unbalanced. Over carbonated. Dumpster juice. A very odd flavor of so etching I quite canít place. Like a plastic or something. Gros

From the 16 fl. oz. can marked 1891-0017. It pours straw yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head. On the nose there are grains, malts, corn, and a hint of hops which is typical for the style. The body is thin. The taste has a noticeable grainy but sweetish character and a clean, crisp hop ending. A light beer is a light beer is a light beer. No better or no worse than its counterparts.

Can. Gansett light is a good summer beer boiling sea food and drinking on the stoop.

Bottle. Watery yellow pour with a thin fizzy white head. Aroma of corn and stale malt. Thin taste of corn, stale wheat with a slight hop finish. Disapointed since the lager isnít too shabby.

This is the third style from Narragansett Iíve had, and so far Iím impressed! I usually consider light beer an abomination of nature. But this is really nice! Average looking pour with a *BRIGHT* white head. Grassy, corn water aroma. Like all light beers it has a watery mouth feel. Very crisp, pleasant taste. Scant hops, but some yeasty biscuit and sweet corn in the backdrop. Way too light on the alcohol content. But this is an excellent thirst quencher. Great for a lawn mowing beer or just as a cold one on a hot summer day. This is one of the best light beers ever! I paid $4.99 for a sixer of pint cans on 06/01/2013 @ Woodmans.
