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!

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

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of lemon juice, little else. Taste is lemons, some malts, somewhat sweet with just a touch of tartness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is an easy drinking beer that would be satisfying on a hot day.

I'm not super crazy about Narragansett lager and I think Del's is really gross, but combined! My god this is a good shandy!

16 oz can poured into a pint glass.

Pours a bright yellow color with almost no head. Smells very light and lemony.

First sip is dominated by a strong, sweet lemonade like flavor with a grainy/husky aftertaste. There isn't much flavor other than the lemon. Quite refreshing, but pretty one dimensional. Great beer for a summer barbecue or sipping on the porch at the shore.
