COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our light beer to the same high standards that our founders established way back in 1890. It’s no surprise that ’Gansett has been the beer of choice around here for more than a century. If you’re not drinking Narragansett, you’re not from New England.

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 I’ve ever had, as it’s fresh, clean, super drinkable, and has enough flavor to not make me think I’m drinking water. I prefer this to the normal Narragansett Lager. This may become a summer fall back.

Light corn and malt aroma. Yellow with a hint of gold color. Head quickly dissipates. Mild bitterness with a hint of sourness. Hard detect an actual flavor. Has a clean and bubbly finish.

This is the third style from Narragansett I’ve had, and so far I’m 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.

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.

16 ounce can from Nikki’s Liquors. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of crackery malts and grassy hops. The taste is pale malts, corn and a grassy finish. Medium bodied and fairly clean. About what you’d expect for a light beer.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass. The color is a light yellow/gold with a slight finger of foamy white head that is gone quickly after the pour. The smell was muted and hard to find with small hints at corn and what may have been a little crystal malt aroma in the far background The taste was pretty light as expected. More light malt flavor that hangs there in the back like a curtain dividing things up a bit. There was some watery corn or rice flavor then slight sting of bitterness comes out after crossing the line into the hop part of the flavor at the end The feel of this beer is light and crisp with a dry finish. It is pretty drinkable and goes down easy with little effort. This makes for a good summer time beer.

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 didn’t 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 can’t say anything bad about and nor can I say anything to hype it up.

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.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 The aroma is watery with a bit of malt, grass, and metal. The appearance is pale gold with a typical head for the style. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a pretty blah lager but quite drinkable.

Can. Clear very pale yellow, fluffy white head. Aroma of light apples, straw. Taste is mildy bitter and peppery apples.
