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 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.

Not too bad. Pours a yellow, clear with a light head. Aroma is light hops and malt, somewhat European. taste is light hops, malt, a pilsen but sweeter. Aftertaste is good. Mouth feel is better than average. This is a good summer time beer. remembered it from college, only college beer I will still drink!

The_Osprey (7405) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
February 2017 - 16 fl oz can at home in Richmond as Narragansett Lager - "Made on Honor, Sold on Merit" - Since 1890. No date or ABV details. Pours clear golden, highly sparkling with a big dense foamy white head, leaving thick lacing. Looks the part. Aroma is a bit like tarnished metal, lager malt, also melon-bubblegum. Body is a bit frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is pretty clean and sweet, sugary malts, slight bubblegum esters, very soft bitterness - more papery than bitter in the finish. Reminds me of DAB Export. Not really for me. Always interesting to try these classic old lagers though - this one appeared in the film Jaws.

First, the harshness: What is the opposite of "garbage water" stouts? Peepee water Narragansett. Extremely refreshing but mostly for drinking in dire situations where dehydration and/or death are imminent, or when the Red Sox are present (same thing). Second, the balanced viewpoint: very cheap, reliable, and drinkable... a fine example of the most ignoble of brews, the pale lager.

TheHopster (1100) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Can poured in glass. Doyles choice for Lorettas 50th party. Aroma of corn, can and some malt. Pours a clear golden complexion with dissipating thick white head. The flavor is macro-malt with some hops and corny flavor with mildly sweet aftertaste. Good choice for a dive bar or New England roadhouse. Some points for brewer history.

Grumbo (2096) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine, Miami Beach. Pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, syrup and potato. Fairly sweet, minimal bitterness. Light body, oily texture, average carbonation. First Rhode Island state tick, but not a particularly good beer.

Emeister84 (2298) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 6, 2016
On tap at World of Beer (Charlottesville, VA). Aromas of heavy diacetyl, grainy. Clear orange-gold with a fairly lasting white head. Some buttery flavor, lightly sweet grain. Light bodied.

Very flat smell with extremely light and clear look. The taste does not stand out and is not extremely original but still a nice beer.

thepatrickman (1145) - Durham, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 3, 2016
In a world of stemware and neck beards, its refreshing to remember that its still possible to get a $2 pint of beer at a bar and watch the World Series. Whats it like, you ask? Oh, its pretty aggressively mediocre. Its adjunct-heavy and tastes like it was brewed to fit into a line-up of macro lagers at a police station. But the world needs beers like this, and it fit in perfectly with an inning of baseball.

Can. Pours golden, clear, small head. Aroma of hops, fruits, malts. Taste of malts, corn, caramel.

Draft while aboard a sunset cruise in NYC. Better than I had expected. not offensive in any way. went down nicely as things were kicking off.
