Lightly corny aroma with some graininess. Pours striking golden. Small wispy white head. Clean and crisp. Not offensive.

Drinkable but not really something I would drink on a regular basis. Good for the price.

Solid lager. I like the tall boy can. I'd happily drink this if it were sold in Texas.

jcr (2691) - 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 its not flaw-filled either.

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.

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.

Tap at Gambrinus. Pours a clear gold. Faint honey nose with some grain. Clean and crisp lager. Touch of peppery bite on the finish. Not awful by any means.

The_Osprey (7835) - 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.
