Narragansett Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States
narragansettbeer.com

Style: Fruit / Vegetable Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Roll out the Barrel: Narragansett Del’s Shandy is a collaboration between two iconic Rhode Island brands. The Shandy is available in six packs of 16-ounce cans, twelve packs of 12-ounce cans, in the new Clam Shack Summer Variety Pack, and on draft throughout the season. The beer contains 4.7% ABV and 14 IBUs (International Bitterness Units).

Quality Supreme: The Narragansett Del’s Shandy is the perfect thirst-quenching balance of our gold medal Lager with Del’s lemon concentrate…brewed under the supervision of award-winning Brewmaster Sean Larkin. ‘Gansett’s Lager is the highest rated domestic Lager according to Beer Advocate, while Del’s Lemonade has been Rhode Island’s favorite summer treat for over six decades.

Taste & Enjoy: The ‘Gansett Del’s Shandy has just the right balance of malty sweetness and citrus tartness. The Shandy is the ultimate summertime refresher…one sip leads to another. You might even say that “It’s Refreshingly Different!”

The History: Narragansett’s Famous Lager has been brewed & beloved throughout New England for over 120 years. The first Del’s stand opened in RI in 1948 using an old family recipe brought over from Italy. Since then, both ‘Gansett and Del’s Lemonade have refreshed thousands of happy customers on and around the Rhode Island beaches…and beyond. Now the two flavors are combined to create a most refreshing summertime adult beverage. We hope you love it!

L: Poured from a can to a pint glass. Had a golden yellow color and a clear consistency. There was a small amount of foamy / fizzy head that quickly dissipated. Not much lacing.

S: An average aroma of lemon, malt, and a definite tartness.

T: Tasted of a whole bunch of lemon (mostly in the front), a lot of malt (mostly in the finish), a grainy quality, the aforementioned tartness, and a sugary quality. This is definitely an unusual flavor, but an uneven one as well. It has a strong lemon presence, but needs a touch more (and less malt).

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: Not a bad beer for the summer, but certainly an uneven one. Worth a try, though.

A really good beer when it's ice cold on a brutally hot summer day - during a BBQ, after a long day working outside, etc. but this wouldn't be a daily beer for me - As a "special occasion" summer beer it is excellent - light and the lemonade really comes through, so if that's your thing give it a shot!

Drink this one out of the can. Absolutely fabulous for barbecues during the summer in New England. In all other situations, falls miserably short.
