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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A - pale gold with a huge, thick cap of pure white head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing

S - cereal grains and maybe some citrus and grass

T - cereal grains, grassy, very mild bitterness in the finish

M - light bodied, crisp, well carbonated

This is a nice light beer that is easily quaffable. There isn't much here in the way of flavor but it is refreshing and easy to drink straight from the can. This is a great BMC replacement beer as well as a light lawnmower or tailgate beer.

on tap at beer study in chapel hill.

pale yellow. not much on the nose. easy drinking summer beer that you could drink all day. crisp and malty. light bodied with medium carbonation.

overall a good summer beer. hard to see anyone not liking it. not going to be anyone's favorite but it is what you expect it to be.
