look: 3.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

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.

Narragansett Brewing Co. "Fresh Catch"
16 fl. oz. can, coded "D138 130147"
$2.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: Nice label but I'm not sure how fresh this "Fresh Catch" is considering the code on the bottom of the can is "D138 130147" - what the hell does that mean? Anyway, I love that they've decided to dry hop it with Citra so let's see how it is! It's poured a massive head of bright white foam atop a clear golden body. Nice. The aroma is not so great. They may have used Citra, but how much did they use. Still, it gives it a fresh, clean note with just a touch of citrus to it. The flavor follows and it's pretty much a basic American adjunct lager with some citrus thrown in. This is cheaper but for my money I'd rather go with Yuengling's Lord Chesterfield, 100% hopped with Cascade. It's grainy, basic, and fairly bitter for what it is, around 25 IBUs. It reminds me of the regular Narragansett Lager except that this is lighter and more bitter. It finishes dry with a residual note of lemon. It's light-medium in body and crisp, and the head has held up well and even left some very nice lacing behind. At least it looks good! As a basic beer, lawnmower beer, after-work beer, or just something to wash down you're lunch I guess it does the job but there are much better choices out there.
