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!

An inoffensive shandy, pours a light straw yellow with a moderate head. Slightly thin, nicely carbonated. This would be best ice cold straight out of the can while sitting on the beach.

This beer pours a crystal clear pale golden color with a 1.5 finger, foamy white head. Retention is average for an AAL and there is no lacing to speak of.

Smell is straight up tart lemon. There is also some grain and sugary sweetness.

Taste is tons of lemon too. It runs more on the sweet side though, and I think it would work better if there was more tart lemon flavor instead.

Feel is light and smooth with lots of carbonation.

Overall this beer is decent and I definitely wouldn't turn one down on a hot summer day. I just wish it was more tart because the sweetness is too much especially as the beer warms.

I tried this, and it was undrinkable. I actually then shared this with friends as a joke, and not one laughed. Maybe I"m alone here, but this seemed totally a wrong experiment.

This is not okay it is awful and close to undrinkable. This taste like there based beer lager with some lemon added to it. Im sorry but lemon and lagers don't mix well together folks. Anybody that thinks this makes for a pleasant tasting beer is a complete imbecile. Cheers! D- (60-64)

Easy easy drinking! Poured in an iced mug and tossed in some lemon slices. Not bad at all! This feels like summertime at the beach. No after taste and goes down too easy. Got a case for $15 and did not regret 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.
