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.

wombat23 (1224) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Draft at Reginas Pizzeria, Boston, MA. Straw color, and clear with a small white head. Not much aroma - maybe some corn and light malt. Taste is lager-like, but also is a bit strange: maybe some ginger or cream soda? Weird.

Darwenus (1065) - Virginia, USA - JUN 11, 2016
This is water. It doesnt have a bad taste, or a bad aroma. It just doesnt have any taste or aroma. It pours very bright yellow with lots of carbonation. No aroma, no flavor.

hershiser2 (2792) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2016
$1.35 Pint can from Wine Warehouse. Pours clear golden with a large off-white head. Slightly sweet aroma, possibly grassy, but not discernible. Taste is actually not too bad for a lager. Plain, sure, but does not taste like some of its cheap counterparts. A bit thin in the mouth.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. Still better than Bud/Coors/Miller light products.
