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.

16 oz pounder can. Aroma is light bready dough and weak hops with a hint at lager yeast.

Body is thin and watery as you would expect, real thin. But the flavor is bad. Just not much here. Grain, old malts, some mild fruit like note. No hops or bitterness at all. Drinkable for a pale lager I guess.

500ml can. Looks light. Aroma of pale malts, bread, and very light bitterness. Flavor the same. Light texture. A decent light pale lager.

Draft. Complete garbage juice. Sweet. Unbalanced. Over carbonated. Dumpster juice. A very odd flavor of so etching I quite can’t place. Like a plastic or something. Gros

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 isn’t too shabby.

Imaena (1928) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 18, 2013

Aurelius (4497) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Pale, pale yellow with a thin clingy head. Fair can. Smells like beer. Flat and watery, stale malt flavor. Thin and slightly musty. Virtually no bittering. Not offensive, just not much of a brew. New Leaf Market.
