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.

(draught) pale gold, white head. Light malt flavors. Typical pale lager.

Captain Quint from Jaws can’t be wrong... a real working man’s thirst quencher. This beer is nearly dead-on for the style they are going for: six row barley malt, corn, lightly hopped, traditional yeast strain... tastes like 1975.

Typical American pale lager. Nice foamy head got this one ice cold. For the style it is I must say it is enjoyable. Nothing fancy a working mans beer back from the past. Sweet flavor taste some hops. Nothing offensive or cheap tasting not a fancy micro hey neighbor I’ll have another Ganesett!

I used to see this stuff while growing up in Cape Cod, so finding this in Florida feels special. From the can pours a nice golden body with a full head. The aroma is very light, some hops and even less malts - but sweet also. While light and a tad fruity, the bready character makes for a refreshing brew indeed. High carbonation left the mouth a little dry - but still enjoyable.

Tall boy. Pours a clear dark golden color with a white foamy head. Nose is grainy with honey sweetness and grassy hop notes. Palate is medium with a light fizzy tingle. Flavors of honey, straw, grass, and a clean finish.

16 oz. can from my Buddy Brian. OK, let’s face it; this is a lager. You’re not going to get too much here. Nearly no aroma, Maybe light malt. Typical lager. Light corn flavors. Went down easy. This is in no way bad. And the price is awesome. If you like lagers, this should not offend you.

marcus (10867) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Pours clear golden with a nice off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a mild pale malt flavor with a little banana ester and a slightly bitter finish.

16 oz can. Drinking this one just to get it out of the way. Pale in color, pale in flavor, some bite. Everyone likes it for the money, but in reality it just sucks. Not my cup of tea.

16oz can, thanks to my mom for this one. Clear yellow color, thin foamy white head. Nice, medium strips of spots and lace. Webby layer on the surface. Carbonation slightly strong, but not too bad. Some lemon-peel/citrus taste to it, a nice complement to the typical lager flavor. Nice savory / mild salt taste. I can definitely see how this would be great with clams. A good lager.

12 oz. bottle at the Red Parrot in Newport. One of my favorite grouping of cans in my collection are my Narragansett cans from the 1960’s and 70’s. I’m happy to see this beer back. Pours a clear pale gold with a moderate white head. Mild aroma of grainy malt with a touch of cereal sweetness. The flavor is similar with light grainy malt with a bit of cereal sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish. Not a bad beer and good for an inexpensive pale lager.
