From 07/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at Mug's Alehouse in Brooklyn.

a - Pours a hazy, golden orange color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, wheat, bready malts, pale malts, and earthy notes.

t - Tastes of grains, bread, wheat, dough, and bread. Light floral notes, not a ton going on, but nothing offensive.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation. Thin and very easy to drink. Could definitely have a few of these.

o - Overall there isn't a ton going on here and it is pretty average, but it is not a bad beer for an AAL. Lots of grains and bready malts, and easy to drink, I'd prefer this over most BMC products.

Raul did it! Finally! Fenway Park and a Narragansett Lager! Raul usually isn't into the adjunct swill, but like Oprah on a cheesy gordita, he just had to! Results? Unlike Oprah on said gordita, it's not revolting. A bit sweet, but not revolting.

Yep!

The beer comes in a clear straw yellow color. Very standard for a lager of the style with a white foamy head.

The aroma has grain, pale malt, a bit of rice with some grassy hops.

The flavor follows with a light body with some grainy breadiness, with a bit of lemon and grassiness.

It has that lager refreshing body and carbonation for the mouthfeel.

This is actually quite a competent beer for the style. Not much on the hops, but still not offensive with the hop or malt profile.
