We brew our light beer to the same high standards that our founders established way back in 1890. It’s no surprise that ’Gansett has been the beer of choice around here for more than a century. If you’re not drinking Narragansett, you’re not from New England.

From a can. Pours clear gold with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like doughy malt, and faint musky grains. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like doughy malt and faint musky grains.

500ml can. Looks light. Aroma of pale malts, bread, and very light bitterness. Flavor the same. Light texture. A decent light pale lager.

Pale, pale yellow with a thin clingy head. Fair can. Smells like beer. Flat and watery, stale malt flavor. Thin and slightly musty. Virtually no bittering. Not offensive, just not much of a brew. New Leaf Market.

Draft. Complete garbage juice. Sweet. Unbalanced. Over carbonated. Dumpster juice. A very odd flavor of so etching I quite can’t place. Like a plastic or something. Gros

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2010 The aroma is watery with a bit of malt, grass, and metal. The appearance is pale gold with a typical head for the style. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a pretty blah lager but quite drinkable.

From the 16 fl. oz. can marked 1891-0017. It pours straw yellow with a short-lived fizzy white head. On the nose there are grains, malts, corn, and a hint of hops which is typical for the style. The body is thin. The taste has a noticeable grainy but sweetish character and a clean, crisp hop ending. A light beer is a light beer is a light beer. No better or no worse than its counterparts.

16 oz can. Pretty nice light pale lager at a hot isomer BBQ. Not a particularly good beer pretty easy drinking. Light toast. Cereal. Not much in the wag of hops. Fine.

16oz can, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Clean, plain aroma of light malt. Flavors are clean! Woohoo! Light, seltzery malt flavors give this a "Cincinnati-style" sensation. This may be the best pale lager I’ve ever had, as it’s fresh, clean, super drinkable, and has enough flavor to not make me think I’m drinking water. I prefer this to the normal Narragansett Lager. This may become a summer fall back.

this is what a substandard light beer would taste like. lots of corn and rice adjuncts, little hops and a strong malt taste. not much else.

Can. Gansett light is a good summer beer boiling sea food and drinking on the stoop.
