Narragansett Itís About Time IPA
The aroma has notes of pine and citrus. Has a golden body that has a touch of amber. The head is a solid inch thick to start and lingers quite a bit. Bod bitter start but then finishes off rather clean. Has a malty grain taste.

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.

Narragansett Lovecraft the Unnamable Black Lager
Pours a dark brown with a thin white head, good lacing, from a can. Roasty toffee aroma has a tinge of coffee, flavor is almost fennel-y, although I did have some italian sausage at dinner that may have lingered. This is a sweet roasty dark lager, Iím thinking more along the lines of a dunkel. Definitely not a black IPA. Good beer.

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout
Out of can. Decent if kind of unremarkable stout base. Coffee feels like outta poured on top, and one of those jolt creamer caffeine things I get from the gas station. Not terrible but no great shakes.

Narragansett Lager Beer
February 2017 - 16 fl oz can at home in Richmond as íNarragansett Lagerí - "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.

Narragansett Lager Beer
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.

Can poured in glass. Doyleís choice for Lorettaís 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.

Narragansett Delís Shandy
Clear and slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of lemons, pale malt, light caster sugar and a bit of curacao as well. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong lemon flavour with some mild malt, some subdued sugar and a tiny bit of tin and metal. Aftertaste is super pale, very citrusey and showing a lot of grass and herbal notes. Overall, a nice fresh beer with a lot of lemon and citrus flavour showing a subdued malt character and finishing with a little sweetness. Much better than expected! I samped this 50 cL can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 21-June-2015 for US$2,25 sampled on the train to Washington on the same day.

Narragansett Hi-Neighbor! Have A Hefeweizen!
Clear golden coloured body with a thin off-white head, only a centimetre tall. Aroma of lemons, yeast, curacao and a touch of freshness from coriander seed. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rich yeastie flavours with a bit of biscuits, some grain and a mild citrus flavour. Aftertaste shows mellow yeast, some subdued wheat and a touch of sweetness from the curacao. Overall, a nice and mellow beer with a smooth finish. Nice to sample and would be very nice in the summertime! I sampled this sixteen ounce can purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Chelsea), New York on 01-December-2016 for US$2,99 sampled on the train from New York to Washington on 04-December-2016.

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout
Rich deep dark brown coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of coffee, lactose, alcohol and a big roasted malt flavour with some oatmeal and grains for extra bitterness as well. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty and earthy flavours with some lactose and pure caster sugar flavours along with a ton of coffee and very earthy, malty flavours that persist throughout. Aftertaste shows some bigger roasty and bitter elements with the coffee and chocolate by far the strongest, with only a touch of alcohol and bitterness on the finish. Overall, a good stout with coffee and sweetness, but nothing too amazing nor worth searching out for. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased a few minutes ago at Whole Foods in New York (Chelsea), New York on 02-December-2016 for US$2,99 sampled walking the streets of New York when my daughter was asleep on 02-December-2016.

Hazy yellow color out of the can with a short, foamy white head. Not much of a nose. This does not drink like a traditional hefe. Some doughy yeast taste, a hint of banana, and a corny sweetness just donít do it for me.

Narragansett Autocrat Coffee Milk Stout
As a fan of milk stout I was anxious to try the Narragansett version. A very rich heady brew with a strong coffee finish. Not overly sweet but nicely balanced with the dark roasted malt and burnt coffee. The added coffee must add caffeine since this perks me up after having a few beers. Liked it so much as a closer at the end of the day I am on my third case of tall cans.

Narragansett Lager Beer
In a world of stemware and neck beards, itís refreshing to remember that itís still possible to get a $2 pint of beer at a bar and watch the World Series. Whatís it like, you ask? Oh, itís pretty aggressively mediocre. Itís 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.

Pint Can, Wine Warehouse. Pours hazy pale golden, nice sized white head. Big easter blossom aroma: roses, other easter flowers (that I can picture but donít know the names of). Flavor is also very floral, but then turns to mild citrus and Hawaiian bread. Finishes with a bittersweet candy-like flavor. I like it quite a bit until the finish.

From the can marked 0196-1322:30. Slightly foggy orange-yellow under a quick lasting white head. A little Belgian white bread malt character on the nose at first with some citrus, herbal notes, and a weird perfume thing. Light to medium body. The taste has a more forward citrus and herbal hop bitterness and pepper like finish. Almost feels boozy. Lingers at the end. Something more subtle would have been more satisfactory to me.
