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.

16oz Can: Nice crisp pale malts and a sweet lingering hop note thats actually detectable. Reminds me of PBR but with a little less class.

Capa (3295) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pale gold with a quickly vanishing white head. Light grain and sugar in the aroma. Same in flavor and very light on flavor but does have just a hint of hop finish. Carbed ligke a macro lager. Comes across as a high brow college drinking game lager. Still, better tham BMC and in the right circumstance (beer pong) it could be immensly drinkable.

DiarmaidBHK (4891) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2011
Pours golden yellow with a nice sized white head and leaves a ton of lacing. Not a lot of aroma. The taste has a sweet maltiness to it. Finishes clean and crisp. I’m kind of shocked. I actually kind of like this one.

On tap. Pours light golden. Light malts, toasted. A very light beer. Worth trying because it’s better than a lot of other lagers.

Draft at the dutch...while I am glad that this American classic lager has been saved from extinction, you can learn all you need to know about this beer by watching Captain Quint in the movie Jaws and the revelry it creates after you bite the can open with your teeth....Join in if you are so inclined. "Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies. Farewell and adieu to you ladies of Spain. For we’ve received orders for to sail back to Boston. And so never more shall we see you again." Here’s to swimmin’ with bow-legged women." "Here lies the body of Mary Lee; died at the age of a hundred and three. For fifteen years she kept her virginity; not a bad record for this vicinity." For a session/lawnmower beer it sure aint bad.

Of all the pale lagers in the world, this might be one of the most drinkable. Obviously, though, I won’t be giving it a 4+ rating. This beer is one that could be drank for a very extended period of time, in a party-like setting. Or you just drink slam back 12 of them and have a little fun by yourself. Either way, it’s a decent lager. It pours a bright and clear golden color with a minimal white head. The head does leave quite a bit of sticky lacing around the glass. The aroma doesn’t offer a whole lot; only a bit of grains, light hops and sweet malt. The body is very drinkable, semi-creamy and very smooth, but doesn’t offer a whole lot of flavor. The finish is very neutral and a bit bland.

Poured into a delirium glass for shits and giggles. Gansett pours a clear straw yellow, with a decent white head that lowers at a normal rate. Light lacing. Light aroma of cereal grains, with no solid hop character. It has that mass produced beer aroma, with a sharp finish. Sweet flavors with a little twang at the end. Good mouthfeel, carbonation is medium. Very drinkable, but it is what it is, a better than average vintage/retro American beer. It could easily be my Pabst replacement. Good beer for the value.

From tap at Jacob Wirth as Jakes House Lager Narragansett. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is citrusy and hops fruity. Grassy, slight hayish and mild yeasty. Bitter and slight citrusy finish.

Can courtesy of MaltDawg on 11/01/2010. Very clear pale golden body with a small frothy white head. Sweet corn and light honey aroma. Sweet corn and honey flavor. Medium light body with moderate carbonation.
