Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
Narragansett Summer is a light session ale made with two row pale malt and citra hops. The citra hops are a very popular, newer variety that deliver aromas of citrus and passion fruit without overpowering the taste buds. The beer is blonde in color and the mild kiss of the hops complement the pale malt perfectly, making it extremely drinkable.

Had this in the original packaging 16oz. can

A: Clean pale golden color with a frothy white head. A nice clean looking beer.

S: Forward hop aroma with hints of citrus and cracker malts on board. Very nice smell to this beer.

T: Light floral hops and malty sweetness are present along with a hint of grassy tones and some spice. Very nice crisp hoppy finish to this beer. Fantastic balance!

M: Light body beer with moderate carbonation and excellent drinkability to this offering. This beer has "Session" written all over it.

O: Very nice summer beer that is refreshing, balanced and quite tasty. The only challenge with this beer is that I have not had an opportunity to get any more as demand is strong.

Narragansett Summer Ale is gold in color.
White head, nice lacing left behind.
The smell is very mild. Grains and some sweetness.

Really nice flavor. Thin malts, citrus, lemony. Dry, slightly biter finish.

Very enjoyable. Easy to drink.
Excellent summer beer.

Would pair well with salads, sea food, fish tacos.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a nice white head. There was no real and defiant smell to the beer. Taste is pretty bland for a summer beer, there is no stand out ingredient that really screams summer. Mouthfeel is a lightly carbonated beer that hangs around for a little bit. Overall it's a little below average and really not worth it. #t6pp
