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.

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.

Oh jeez Narragansett! Blast from the past - I remember when it was one of only a couple of beers for sale at a little country store in Maine that I used to frequent. The guy at the beer store said not only has the label been revived, but there has been some substantial investment in getting it going again. So how is the modern day Narragansett lager? It is an odorless, lightly sweet PL that has a bit more flavor than it used to. It is unimpressive, but not bad for the style. If it was a great summer night in New England, I would, like I did years ago, drink it without complaining.

Ya know what, this is a pretty good lager. Exactly what you’d expect, but with a little more flavor than normal, shows at least a little bit of care and love in the brewing, not just a macro.

Clear yellow color. Satisfying white head. The aroma is sweet and so is the taste. It’s easy on the buds and has satisfying white lace.

473 ml can. It pours a pale gold with a soapy white head that doesn’t leave much lacing. Smell is almost of nothing, there is more malt than sourness like sot AALs, but the corn is still annoying and there. The flavor has a metallic sourness, some vegetal flavor, artificial sweetener, and some water. The mouthfeel is really watery. Bad beer, not sure where the hype came from?, almost guaranteed from the name.

Narragansett Lager (brewed in Rochester, N.Y.) has a thick, white head, and a clear, bubbly, yellow-golden appearance, with some lacing left behind. The aroma is of generalized grain, slight eggyness, and water. Taste is malt forward, with a touch of hop bitterness at the tail end of the sip and sweetness across. There is decent bite with this one. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Narragansett Lager finishes crisp, clean, mild, and refreshing. Overall, it’s good, and I wish it was sold in Louisiana. RJT

Bif (2245) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Pours a light golden color with a billowing head that fades to some lacing. Mild aroma of grain with some sweetness. Smell is clean and not musty like some lagers. Taste of grain, mild sweetness and a trace of spice. Has a light bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, crisp and refreshing. Has more character than i expected for and Adjunct Lager. Nice beer, better than the BMC offerings. Can’t beat the price either.

reggiedunlop (3725) - 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.
