In my opinion it tastes like what a Bells 2 Hearted "light" would taste like with a modest citrusy finish. I like it and could easily down a few. The 9.99 cost for a 6 of tall boys all the way down here in NC is also pretty nice. Also gotta love that lobster on the can

Pint can poured into a stein.

Appearance: Clear gold with a big puffy white head.

Aroma: Lemon, cut grass, some malt.

Taste: Crisp, lemony hops along with a solid malt backbone. Good amount of flavor.

Mouthfeel: Easy drinking. Definitely meant to pair with fried food.

Overall: I’m not sure what the difference is between this and the old Gansett summer ale, but it’s a solid blonde ale.

Appearance
Pours to rocky white head that lasts and laces. Pale gold. Clear.

Aroma
Light, clean crackery biscuity malt, moderate floral, citrus hop.

Flavor
Clean, crackery pale malts, middle sweetness and crisp, spicy bitter finish.

Mouthfeel
Feels great. Light to medium, a fair bit of stickiness and perfect moderate level of CO2. No harshness.

Overall
Easy drinking, clean and crisp. Has a significant amount of hops without overpowering the malt. A very good hop forward rendition of a Blonde.

Poured into a large 14 oz glass.

It looks a little darker than my usual beers (hamms, old style). I had read about Narragansett being a good beer to add to my fridge. I haven't tried the regular yet so this is my intro to the beer.

Fresh Catch is not what I look for in a beer. (Hamms is my personal #1) The smell was a bit off putting. Smelled bitter and too citrus.

The taste was like it smelled. One comparison I instantly thought of is when you get Deep Woods Off in your mouth.

Feel is hard to say. The bitter citrus taste was very over powering.

I'll finish off this 6 pack but wI'll not get it again as its not quite my taste. I can see if going down good with some grilled food but isn't a good option for just sitting and having a beer.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is not so good. On one side is some biscuity malts, hops on the other, and they are not meshing well together. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

Probably one of my last summer beers this year. It pours a pretty golden with a relatively impressive tight bubbled white head that leaves sticky lace behind. Nose is light citrus over bread malts.

A little more balanced in flavor than is usual for the style, with enough lemon tinged hops to basically neutralize the honey and biscuit type notes. A bit crisper than expected as well, with a touch of astringency that isn't optimal. Texture is a bit creamy which is a plus. Slightly flawed, but a solid effort nonetheless from Rhode Island's flagship brewer.
