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 drinkingcrisp and refreshing. Its got more flavor than other premium lagers, yet its 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.

reggiedunlop (3704) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2011
Pours golden with a thick foamy white head...lively looking. Aroma smells just like many american macro lagers...horrendous...grassy and earthy with a distinct skunky note. Flavor follows suit but tastes slightly better than the aroma suggests. Mouthfeel is silky and lively but the finish is watery and skunky. Better than coors lt and miller lt and the like...but not by much.

A: The pour is a clear, pale straw color with a short-lived white head. S: Not too much of a nose on this beer. Pretty light in general with some light grass notes and some sweet corn. There is a bit of apple juice in there, too. T: Not surprisingly, tastes like any other adjunct lager out there. Heavy on the adjuncts with little to no malt flavor. Grassy hops with a light bitterness on the finish. Sweet corn and apple juice. M: Light in body with a high level of carbonation. O: I suppose its a little better than Coors Light, but its not like I would make a big deal about this beer.

Draft. Pale yellow. Mild head. Taste his mild malt and hot that fades quick. Nothing great but a desent session beer to buy in a tall can for hipster BBQs in brooklyn to combat the Pbrs.Ill have a few over any macro

Can from Half Time. Labled "Official Beer of the Clam". Poor clams. Pours gold with a 2 finger foamy white head. Very bready aroma with a hint of grass. Flavor is bready. 12 IBUs might be stretching it. Clean tho, and arguably a little refreshing. Not sorry to have tried it.

(can - 16 oz) Clear yellow with a fizzy white head. Sweet corn and metallic aroma. Some wet grass. Smooth and light taste with a minor sweetness. Easy to drink and went down smooth.

Pours gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to coat surface. Sweet corn and citrus aromas. Crisp with sweet hay and mild citrus hops upfront turning slightly sour grass in the lasting macro finish.
