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.

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 it’s a little better than Coors Light, but it’s 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 BBQ’s in brooklyn to combat the Pbr’s.I’ll 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.

an ideal lawnmower beer... much better than most low-cost American lagers and it’s the "official beer of the Clam" !

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2011
(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.

thornecb (5920) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 10, 2011
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.

As these things go, it’s pretty good. As these things go. Lightly sweet corn, metallic, maybe a hint of grassy hops. Crisp and extremely drinkable.

A- Extremely light yellow and clear. Nice foamy lager head with decent lacing and retention. Nothing spectacular, but its a lager so I can’t expect too much S - Sweet. Sweet. Sweet. The smell is dominated by a sweet corn aroma and a hint of malts. I can’t pick out any other aromas. No offensive smells. One of the best smelling adjuncts I’ve had. T - Ahhhhhhh. Why can’t all the other macros taste like this? Crisp carbonation, sweet corn flavors, and the slightest hint of malts and hops. There’s not a ton of flavor, but the flavor that it does have is inbetween neutral and pleasant tasting. Very refreshing and drinkable. This is the difference between bottled water and swamp water. O - It doesn’t get much better than this for the style. Its incredibly cheap, fairly local to me, and oh so non-offensive. The ultimate party beer, no need to do keg stands or funnels to force it down. Take your time neighbor, its damn tasty!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 10, 2011
Draft. Pours a golden body with a white head. Very grainy light sweetness like hints of apple tones. Soft body with a light corn sweetness. Nothing special.
