A perfect beer for a warm spring day as well as opening day Tiger baseball...although it's been a dud of a opening day so far.Pours into a pilsner glass a light to medium golden with a nice looking frothy blooming white crown atop that leaves multiple broken rings of lace as it settles slowly.Aromas are muted with a bit of toasted grain,peppery hops,and a faint nuttiness with is different for the style.A malt tilted pilsner with a firm grain flavor on the palate, a decent shot of peppery/spicy hops in the finish.A quaffing pilsner for sure because it's on the dryer side and lighter bodied,hey the Tiger game just got better!

3.7/5 rDev -1.9%
nice pale yellow and crystal clear
substantial head with solid lacing
subdued nose but nice herbal hops
mouthfeel is really nice and full on this one some definite body
taste is clean and crisp with a tasty hop finish
overall really like this one and is a great representaion of the style and kudos to narragansett for continuing to develop quality beers. Its a little late in the season for this one for me but will close out summer with this as my staple.
love the 6 pack of tall boys they offer there beer in and for $10 a great price performer.

From the 16 fl. oz. can with no noticeable bottling or expiration date. Sampled on February 16, 2014.
It pours like a pilsener with its very heady yellow color and moderate carbonation. Head sticks around forever it seems.
Aroma of toasted grain and barley with a very clean, crisp hop note. It feels so pure.
The body is light and refreshing which is about what I would expect from a pilsener.
The taste has this sort of grainy and malty character at the start with a clean, crisp hop finish that does not linger long but is memorable. Highly refreshing and drinkable. They also have a small batch pilsener but this one is comparable to it.

Appearance: Crystal clear, gold - golden yellow when held to the light, but really more of a golden copper - pours with an average-sized, bright white head, leaves a few spots of lacing
Smell: Somewhat mild, but definitely interesting - somewhat spicy, decidedly German hops - herbal and grassy (good for the style) - some pale malts, lightly grainy - Narragansett lager yeast
Taste: Clean and crisp with a nice hoppy finish - pale malts and pale grains - lightly bready, crackery - nice level of hops for a pils - spicy, herbal, and grassy without being over the top - most of the hop flavor pops up in the finish, which results in a nice, dry finish that makes you want to drink more - low bitterness - maybe a touch too sweet, but only slightly
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, nicely carbonated, nice finish and very quaffable, but could actually be more crisp
Overall: Best paired with a rhapsody
This is very good stuff. There are better German PIlseners out there, and this brew isn't quite as interesting as its bigger brother (the brewed-once Private Stock Imperial Bohemian Pilsner), but it's still remarkable. I would rank this on the top tier of 'Gansett beers, along with Narragansett Bock and Narragansett Summer Ale. And at $8.29 for a six pack of tallboys, I will be stocking this in my fridge pretty regularly.

Bought as part of a 6 pack from Burlington (MA) Wines & Spirits on 4/18. Poured into a Pilsner glass, served at fridge temp.
appearance: Old Gold with a spidery web of lace
smell: classic Pilsener aroma of crackery maslt and spicy Noble Hops
taste: tastes like Pilsener. Actually this tastes like what I imagine a Pre-Prohibition American Lager tasted like.
overall: been waiting a while for this one and it did not disappoint.

Pint can poured into a pilsner glass.
Appearance: Pours a light straw color with a pillowy white head that starts at about an inch and recedes very slowly. Head eventually settles at about a quarter inch. Lacing moderate. Carbonation somewhat heavy.
Aromas: Smells of malt, grain, bread and very faint bubble gum. The nose isn't overpowering, and probably shouldn't be. Overall it smells like a clean, dry lager that doesn't have nonsense like corn in it.
Taste: Clean, dry, and crisp with very faint hop bitterness. It has an inviting flavor that makes it very preferably to your typical American lager. I like it more than 'Gansett's original lager, which is swell for what it is (and cheap). It's simple, but it's a well executed pilsner. Could maybe use a little more hop bite. I paired it with spaghetti squash and it was just fine.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat thin, but adequate body for the style.
Overall: 'Gansett's attempt to bring year-round craft lagers into the fold has been pretty great so far. This offering and the cream ale (which is very lager-like) leave me excited for more. I could certainly see myself having another 'Gansett Boh or Narry Boh or whatever people are calling this guy.
