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.

Pours a slightly hazed blonde color with a large crop of white head. A few patches of lacing streak across the glass while drinking.

Faint spicy hops with hints of citrus fruit. Biscuity malts and grains with some lemon.

Brisk and clean up front with a light hoppy presence. Touches of citrus fruit and a very soft sweetness. Biscuit and grain in the base with some lingering lemon presence. A little grassy towards the finish.

Lighter medium body, well carbonated, refreshing and cooling on the senses. This beer isn't trying to blow you away, which actually works perfectly. I'm not really a fan of the style but I'd definitely buy this again.
