Picked up a 6pk of pint cans from Tenutas in Kenosha, Wi.

Poured in a lager mug, the color stood out beautiful dark gold, with a slight orange cooper hue. This was to be the best part of the beer. The head left quickly.

It had a odd sweet aroma, with a sour background...I keep smelling what I could only describe as mushroom, odd.

The first taste, is tangy sweet, metallic, grainy metal that lingers on the entire mouth. Heavy, and hearty malt on the tongue as it warms. Odd sweet, dry, metallic taste still apparent.

It is drinkable, not too bad if your not trying to pick it apart. I was looking forward to this old New England brand. Hope their other styles are better.

The label says "Hi neighbor have a Gansett" I'd have to say have something else.

A standard beer by definition (although a lot of their seasonal and limited beers are great) it is still a staple in my house. This is comparable to most of the big guys (bud, coors, pbr) but I found it to be better in that is not as filling, nor do I feel as bad for buying a six pack. The appearance is a very light yellow with a strong smell of wheat. The taste is okay and it has a light feel to it without sacrificing too much flavor. So if you want to get something to appease friends who are used to drinking bud but don't want to give Anheuser-Busch your money, this is a great way to go.

Narragansett Lager is the best American style lager that I have ever had, and just might be the best American lager out there.

In comparison to PBR, Narragansett Lager has a bit more body and less sulfuric taste, and a slight lemony flavor that is noticeable in the aftertaste.

Not my normal style of beer, but is a good session beer on a hot summer day. Also a safe bet to buy for events like parties and whatnot

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours with bright clarity , golden amber with a soapy head that fell fast. Nose is corn, grits, corn sweetness and some fresh cut hay. Lightly sweet and no apple on the nose at all. Taste is light, lightly sweet and has a bit of thin apple. Thin malt with a bit of light watery body . Touch of sulfur on the nose at first but that dissipates. Smooth but has a nice bite on the tongue from carbonation. Refreshing with no real hop bitter - maybe a hint of it and some lemon in the dry finish.
