A big, rocky two fingers of bone-white head with decent retention throughout. Color was a really light, pale yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose was really light snd almost non-existent. Mouthfeel was medium with a very light flavor. NOT Ultra Light, but pretty dang close. I liked leaded 'Gansett, but unleaded just does not do it for me.

This is honestly, what you would expect out of this category.

The beer pours crystal clear gold, with a decent head, and some lacing. The aroma is very hard to find, as it's mostly rice and light malt.

The flavor represents this. It's slightly sweet, and there's a heavy carbonation flavor, similar to seltzer. There are no hops.

Out of other light beers, it beats out traditional American Adjuncts, but it's nothing like Sam Adams light, which is my high bar.

12oz. brown bottle.

A: fizzy clear light yellow. Almost no head at all with no lacing.

S: Very watery almost no aroma. Not foul smelling just not much going on. Maybe a little sweet.

T/M: Taste is at a minimal even for a lite beer. Lightly sweet and finishes kinda dry.

D: Not very good at all. Very easy to drink however. I could drink a whole 12 pack of this brew and still drink more. There are better light beers out there.

Cheers

Drank right from the can, minus a small pour into a glass to get a view of it.

Alright, look, there ain't much to say about 'gansett light. It's lighter in color than regular Narragansett, and lighter in flavor as well. There's a bit of toasted bready malt on the backend but not much flavor to speak of and no real noticeable scent. Light-bodied but narrowly manages to avoid the dreaded adjective "watery".

Eh. It's light beer and tastes like it. Drink a regular Narragansett and spend five minutes on a treadmill.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a pint glass.

The color is a light yellow/gold with a slight finger of foamy white head that is gone quickly after the pour.

The smell was muted and hard to find with small hints at corn and what may have been a little crystal malt aroma in the far background

The taste was pretty light as expected. More light malt flavor that hangs there in the back like a curtain dividing things up a bit. There was some watery corn or rice flavor then slight sting of bitterness comes out after crossing the line into the hop part of the flavor at the end

The feel of this beer is light and crisp with a dry finish. It is pretty drinkable and goes down easy with little effort. This makes for a good summer time beer.

A- Light straw yellow... really, the color is the same when it comes back out...

S- Very light nose, some malty sweetness

T- Very little flavor, I guess some more of the malty sweetness

M- Light bodied, light feel

D- Washing down a pizza as I write this... and it's perfect for that

The aroma is very light but that was expected. There is a hint of hops and adjunct malt but it's mostly metallic and floral. The taste is not offensive it's just malt, metal, and water. The appearance is pale gold with a large head. The plate is thin. Overall this is about what I expected. It's an average light lager.

2.88/5  rDev -10.6%

From 07/26/13 notes. Had this at Pier 26 in NYC at the Bouncing Souls/Gaslight Anthem show.

a - Pours a hazy medium orange-yellow color, with one inch of bright white head and high carbonation evident.

s - Smells a bit skunky. Also some bread, grains, wheat, and dough. Not very good.

t - Taste is much better because no skunkyness, but pretty average. Tastes of grains, wheat, dough, biscuit malts, bread, light spice, light floral notes.

m - Light body and high carbonation. A bit too carbonated, otherwise easy to drink.

o - Overall a below average light beer. Nose was a bit skunky, and a bit overcarbonated. Taste wasn't skunky, but pretty plain and not much going on. Worth skipping, wouldn't seek it out again.
