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.

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.

Appearance - clear golden straw color with white head

Smell - herbal, grassy aroma with lemon thrown in for good measure, hint of honey

Taste - grassy flavor with some lemon and a bit of spice from the hops

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, high lively carbonation, crisp, hoppier than expected

Overall - decent beer, one that would be great during BBQ season

Price point - $1.89/16 oz can
