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.

surprised i haven't reviewed this one yet.

a: poured from a 16oz can into a standard pint glass. clear golden in color with plenty of carbonation; whispy white head settles into a thin lacing.

s: bready aroma with notes of wheat and light citrus hops.

t: refreshing from start to finish. bready malt flavor with some cereal grains and wheat. finishes a tad dry with a little bit of citrus hop flavor (gotta love that citra). does a great job of balancing flavor and drinkability.

m: great mouthfeel.

by far the best summer ale available for the price. after reading the profile on the website, i was very surprised to see the addition of citra hops to the recipe. i look forward to this every summer. recommended.
