If you are a fan of American Adjunct Lagers, Narragansett is a sure thing.
The retro can is cool. The beer itself looks pretty typical of the style.
The foamy white head faded fast and only left the slightest amount of lacing.
It is perfectly clear and has a little bit more of a golden color than your average American beer.
Smells like a beer.
More full bodied and a better mouthfeel than most beers of this style.
Not weak or watery.
This beer is crisp, slightly sweet, slightly malty with a little bit bitterness at the finish.
Just a better all around beer than most macro lagers.
When you factor in the price, you can't beat it.

Serving: 16oz can, from the can
Served: 2 June 2014
Appearance: Had this from the can, so can't comment much on the appearance. Love the 16oz can though and the traditional/retro style artwork.
Smell: Smells like "beer" with a faint hop aroma adding some depth of character and a slight spiciness.
Taste: One of the best tasting AALs I think I have had. This beer actually has body and flavor, unlike many other beers of this style, especially those mass-produced ones. The beer is sweet and refreshing with minor hop notes and an ever-so-slight hop bitterness on the back end. The fact that there are any hops in this beer at all pushes it high on my list of AALs.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated and refreshing on the palate. Light to medium-light body, which is better than most other AALs.
Overall: This is a severely underrated style due to it's simplicity, but Narragansett Lager is an exemplary addition to the style. This is probably my favorite AAL to date and one that will be hard to beat. At $5.49/sixer of 16oz cans, this beer is impossible to beat in terms of flavor and value. This will be a staple in my fridge during the hot summer months where a simple, easy drinking beer is all one really wants until the sun sets and the heat subsides a bit. Would highly recommend as a go-to, everyday cheap beer.
