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.

UDBeernut's rating

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2013
This will give me my Rhode Island tick, despite being brewed in Brochester, Ny by Genny. Never the less, pours straw yellow with foam head that disipates quickly. Ample visible carbonation. Nose of a light grassiness, slight corn, and light malt. Taste starts with balanced bitterness and grass, corn on the finish. Body is light, but not thin or watery. Cool beans dood!

Jabic (564) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 19, 2017
Ar: Pale crackers, some sulfur and corn; herbal, lean hop aroma. Ap: Golden and crystal clear; medium-large white head with moderate retention, leaves a nice cap of streaking foam and some trains of froth on the glass sides. T: Clean crackers with a bit of sulfur up front; the slightest hint of corn, with a bit of sweetness; a little toast; bitterness is medium-low, with a touch of herbal hop flavor; finish is a bit of chalk, more cracker malt, and a clean bitterness. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finishes dry. O: A refreshing American pale lager; has some flavor to it, while being overall quite clean and understated; well-made and easy to sit back and drink.

HourGlass13 (849) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Aroma is alcohol, and cereal grains. Tastes like corn and cheap alcohol. Dry. Light bodied. Finishes with mostly cereal grains and aluminum ding.

2.8
freekyp (2194) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Lightly corny aroma with some graininess. Pours striking golden. Small wispy white head. Clean and crisp. Not offensive.

2.6
bubblehouse (1492) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Drinkable but not really something I would drink on a regular basis. Good for the price.

3.6
Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2017
Solid lager. I like the tall boy can. I'd happily drink this if it were sold in Texas.

2.1
jcr (2692) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2017
Can. Golden body with a short, white head. Anemic aroma at best. Raw grain, corn. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Thin body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light malt and sweet corn taste. Light citrus with a very light bitterness in the finish. Not much going on here, but then it’s not flaw-filled either.

Block (2688) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2017
A light beer, not too complex. Mild body, low hops, sweet. Pale malts, some caramel, yeast.

3.8
walrusman (13) - Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2017
Just like I enjoy; malty, sweet & no bitterness at all. Pours clean & clear with crisp flavor. I bring this back home to Ohio every time I visit New England. Love the retro cans as well, as featured in the movie Jaws by actor Robert Shaw.

3.2
bigben873 (249) - Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2017
I saw that this was a Rhode Island beer and I needed to check one off. Then, I heard it was like the PBR of New England. Well, it is a little better than that.

on tap at Legends Golf Resort in Myrtle Beach SC - pale yellow/golden color. No aroma. Decent refreshing flavor.
