BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Narragansett Brewing Co.
Rhode Island, United States
narragansettbeer.com

Style: American Light Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An instant classic that truly delivers on both flavor and refreshment. This lighter version of our original lager is brewed with six-row malt, a secret blend of Pacific Northwest hops, and corn from Iowa. Quenching and light, it's got the same alcohol and calorie count as a typical domestic light beer, but does it without compromising award-winning 'Gansett flavor.

A: crystal clear; pale gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded quickly to a thick collar; little lacing;

S: pilsner malt, corn, earthy and floral hops;

T: follows the nose; from the middle through the finish, there's an additional, very noticeable taste of ginger - it's like you're drinking a combination of beer and ginger ale; mild bitterness on the finish;

M: light bodied; moderate, somewhat prickly carbonation; dry finish;

O: refreshing and thirst quenching; the ginger character was odd;

This is the perfect beer to enjoy during outdoor, summertime activities, preferably near the water, while in New England. Ice cold, right out of the can. Its light, refreshing and only 3.8 ABV, so it wont bowl you over.

Buddy Johnny brought some of these back from a trip to Zoo York. Never had a thing out of this brewery considering they don't ship to Michigan. Might be alright based on what I hear but we'll see.

Look - Typical yellow though this one has a unique golden hue that tends to sparkle in the light. Head consisting of a bone white finger that rapidly dies down to nothing. Moderate carbonation appearance.

Smell - Usual low level hop with a lot of grain. Smells more on the malt side for the style. Let's see how it translates to the flavor.

Taste - Like pure white bread with a touch of hop.

Feel - Swallows easy and clean though full like bread.

Overall - Not shabby but not particularly great. Felt the profile was a bit HEAVY for the style if you could believe that. Decent enough and drinkable for what it's worth. And thus concludes my reviews for the night. On to my twelver of Hollandia.

What to say about this? It tastes like you'd expect. It's like Narragansett lager but watered down, and I don't know how they make it but I'm guessing that that's how they do it. There's nothing special to it. The odd part, however, is that I think I like it even better than the standard. It's just smoother and easier to drink - not that 'gannett is hard to put away!

Nothing fancy, just a good light lager.
