RATINGS: 409   WEIGHTED AVG: 2.46/5   IBU: 12   EST. CALORIES: 150   ABV: 5%
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.

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.

Served from a bottle at Legal Seafood. The appearance is a clear golden hue with a small white head. Low malt profile and light sweetness. Very crisp flavors and the mouth-feel is a little dry. A solid lager.

Good lager. Clean and crisp with a bit of hop flavorings - applied well. Golden body is beauty. Hose is pleasently light. Solid lager.

16 oz can. At the Timo A's Maritimes Tasting.
Clear pale golden color with a small white head. Malt and apple juice in the aroma. The flavor is paper, malt and cardboard.

47,3 cl can @ Timo A’s Maritimes Tasting. Thanks!
Aroma is quite nothing – perhaps some sweet malt and starch. Flavour is also quite nothing with malty tones, starch and some mild hoppy tones. Close to some American lagers without any taste.

473 ml can @ Timo A’s Maritimes Tasting.
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Hay and grainy notes on the aroma, herbs, earth and faint lemon. Flavor is grassy, clove, starch, some grassy hops too. Bland.

can @ Cork 'n Bottle / Crescent Springs KY --- Clear medium-light amber, ivory head that stops at a full cover, lace streaks. This may be the best of the old regional brewery pale ales - mild malt with a little clover and honey, medium fizz, and light hops in a medium-length finish. Enough flavor to satisfy, no noticeable adjuncts, and balanced.

12 oz bottle. Bread biscuit and grass smells. Pours bright gold with a big white pretty persistent head Lots of lacing. Crisp with some character. Super drinkable Slightly sweet mostly malt with veryt little hops bite but still balanced. It has been around so long because its good.

Surprised I’ve never officially logged a rate for this one. Clear golden pour with white head that dissipates and fades. Medium to bright carbonation on the palate. Light bready malt notes, soft spice and not too much else going on. Nothing super offensive.

Blah. A boring pale lager almost worse than the macros. Aroma was weak. Stale lager smell. Pour was a clear light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was just like a macro with a little more substance. Not much flavor with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation.

Bacchus66 (864) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2017
16oz can at War Mouth. Pours clear pale gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of bread, sweet malt, corn. Flavors are similarly grainy, sweet malt, light hops, yeast. Light bodied with a short sweet finish. Much better than I expected, definitely a step up from the usual macros of the world, especially given the price. Need something to drink on a hot day that you don’t want to think about too much? This might be it.
