Six pack of tallboy cans. Pours out a light golden color. Off white head. More bready lager flavor than other shandies. Sweet lemony flavors. Somewhat tart and dry on the finish. Leaves a sticky finish.

Narragansett Summer Ale
Can: Clear gold with a thick white head. Peppery, grainy aroma. Taste is a lot like a pale lager....barley malt mainly....not a lot of APA tones..... An ok beer.....just not much to style.

Pours dark wheat with medium head. Excellent aroma of beer and lemonade and all things summer. Light palate, slight fizz, great undertones of Del's in an unobjectionable lager body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Narragansett Summertime Citra Ale
Brandon, Fl - Craft Cellar - 16 oz can. Light gold sparkling pour, slight trace of lacing, long lasting bubbly white head. Aroma is slightly buttery with a hint of salty spice and citrus. Crisp flavor with nice subtle light citrusy bitterness, some saffron like spiciness, some creamy buttery notes. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean. Another solid entrant from Narragansett (or whoever brews their stuff now).

Narragansett Summertime Citra Ale
16 oz Tallboy. I didnít look at the date on the can because it was poured for me. Right away from the nose I got a light metallic note mixed with weak citrus and white bread. Color was an nearly clear pale yellow.

Flavor is spent milled grain, yeast and the faintest note of melon pulp in the finish. The body is rather thin, almost watery. Nothing to notified the local newspaper about, In fact I typed too much already.

Narragansett Lager Beer
Draft at Reginaís Pizzeria, Boston, MA. Straw color, and clear with a small white head. Not much aroma - maybe some corn and light malt. Taste is lager-like, but also is a bit strange: maybe some ginger or cream soda? Weird.

Look: pored with nice golden bottom, medium white top that left sparse lace on glass.

Narragansett Summertime Citra Ale
16 oz can picked up in St. Pete. Itís cool to find some tough state ticks while on the road. Shiny golden pour with a rocky off white head. Metallic fronted aromatics. Flavor is straw grains, a bit dry, with a citrus hop content hidden in the background. Has that pencil like flavor to it late, that I pick up in some of these goldens. Constant high carb. Have to drink this fast, itís decent when itís ice cold, but its getting warmer every sip, and itís losing its shining qualities.

This is water. It doesnít have a bad taste, or a bad aroma. It just doesnít have any taste or aroma. It pours very bright yellow with lots of carbonation. No aroma, no flavor.

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout
Had this years ago so the memory is a little rusty. I do recall it being the best from this brewer that I tried. Actually was well balanced, decent texture and flavor. The others I tried from them after this were not so great, but I may go back and try another single of this...especially next time when I visit New England just to drink something local.

Narragansett Delís Shandy
16oz can on Memorial Day. Lots of fresh lemon smell as soon as you get near the glass. It tastes strongly of citrus, although I got more lime than lemon. Iíd rather drink a lager or a lemonade than the two together, but this was pretty ok.

From the 16 oz. can released in May 2016. Yellow, heady pour. Busy carbonation. Bread and dough malt aroma with a slight sweetness a low grassy hop profile. Medium and smooth body. The taste is quite bready and doughy with a clean, crisp hop finish. Yeah, a hint of passion fruit but otherwise a straight forward, easy to drink summer beer.

$1.35 Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours clear golden with a large off-white head. Slightly sweet aroma, possibly grassy, but not discernible. Taste is actually not too bad for a lager. Plain, sure, but does not taste like some of its cheap counterparts. A bit thin in the mouth.

Narragansett Summertime Citra Ale
12 ounce can. Bright pale gold color. Moderate frothy white head. Mild light malty nose. Subtle malty flavor is crisp, yet bland. Some hoppiness in finish, but not much going on here. Yeah, it might be OK for hot weather, but I actually prefer the regular Narragansett Lager to this.

Narragansett Summertime Citra Ale
6 week old pint can into a tall pilsner glass. A: Poured gently to a full inch of snowy white foam with good retention. Crystal clear deep gold body with big active bubbles. S: Very light cracker malt scent with the slightest hint of lemon. T: Exact same as the nose but more lemon hop than cracker malt. Simple and nice. M: Light and slightly oily with soft carbonation and clean dry finish. Great drinkability. O: Nice light uncomplicated summer brew that you can kill quite a few of. Widely available and fairly cheap. Whatís not to like?

Can is the best thing about this beer. I can tell they had good intentions, just missed on execution. Not a pour, but rather average once you start drinking. Dark fruit nose, touch of bitterness. Glad I had it... for the can.

Narragansett Big Mamie Indestructable Pale Ale
16 oz. can. This got lost in the back of my fridge (2 or 3 months.) Clear Amber color, mild carbonation level. Cloudy yellow with some fizzy carbonation. Aroma has weak floral notes with a sweet bready malt.

Grainy texture, light earthy hop tones, hints of floral hops. Finish ends pretty sweet. Body is thin just like anything else from íGansett. Considering how long it sat around, it is better then I was expecting. Maybe fairs a tad better earlier in its life.
