"Hi neighbor! Have a 'Gansett!" Remember that slogan? Then you're old, too! ;-) I first saw it in an add for 'Gansett on the back of a Red Sox Yearbook, around the late '60's.... Yikes! Anyhow, have seen 6-packs of these 16oz cans at Market basket for $7.99... Hmmmm... Seemed to be worth a shot, and I do like Maibocks.... So, wtf, eh?

Poured a can into an imperial pint glass.... It's a clear brew, with some slow, steady carbo, and a rich, medium-copper color. Head is a smidge off-white, foamy and fluffy, and sticks to the edges quite nicely. Aroma has some toasty malt and a bit of grassy hopping. Body is solidly medium, and it is mostly smooth going down, having just a touch of prickliness.

Flavor has some subtle sweetness, more toasty malt, some bready action, and a light hint of caramel. Afterwards it has some grassy notes plus a stab of spiciness. Some florality lingers a bit, but the finish is mostly on the dry side. Overall, not bad.... was hoping for a bit more of a pronounced malt profile, but this is still a good value. And, I believe, my first 'Gansett ever. How about that, neighbor?

Had a pint at the Old Engine Room in Mystic, CT. Wonderful sweetness balanced by some bitter grassy hops. What a pleasant herbal aroma that is perfectly matched in the taste. This has got to be one of the best low-cost beers available! Matches with damn near any appetizer or entree. Try it!
