Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.20%

Availability: Summer

Notes / Commercial Description:
Narragansett Summer is a light session ale made with two row pale malt and citra hops. The citra hops are a very popular, newer variety that deliver aromas of citrus and passion fruit without overpowering the taste buds. The beer is blonde in color and the mild kiss of the hops complement the pale malt perfectly, making it extremely drinkable.

Poured into a tulip.

Pours clear with a big fluffy beautiful 4 finger head that slowly dissipates and leaves a cloud of puffy bubbles as a pillow in my glass. Subtle aroma of sweet malts and citrusy hops that are on spot for the style.

Taste is surprisingly citrusy from a healthy dose of citra hops. Slight sweetness from the malt nicely complements the hops. Mouthfeel is wonderfully creamy and I cannot remember a beer this low in ABV that is so chewy.

Overall, I would call this my perfect summer session ale. Cheap. Tall-boy cans. Awesome look. Amazing mouthfeel. Low ABV. A taste that holds up extremely well. How could anyone complain?

Buy it, you won't find anything better for the price.

Poured a medium straw hue with a four finger rocky white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a husky grainy malt with a light lemon zest.

The taste featured light grainy malts with lemon and a grassy hop.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty summer refresher. Simple and quaffable.

I got this one from Iimmush, cheers Tim!

Pours an effervescent hay color with 2 fingers of ivory head. Above average head retention & very good lacing

S: Perfumy & grassy hop notes

T: Follows the nose, plus sweet grainy cereal notes. More sweet graininess as this warms along with lemons. Finishes grassy with sweet grainy notes

MF: Light bodied with soft carbonation, pretty good balance

An alright blonde ale, just not enough flavor to get too amped up about

Thanks goes out to TheManiacalOne for this brew.

Pours a nice clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger foamy white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, slight hop note, with a touch of caramel. The taste is sweet, malty, slightly hoppy. Medium Body. A nice brew, excellent thirst quencher on a hot day.

Picked up a sixer of tallboys for $7. I was surprised to see such a tall, fluffy head on top of this, but it looks like a Belgian blonde.

The beer reminded me of craft brewery takes on the cream ale. It started off with a light, somewhat cream bread taste and then a spicy citrus hop finish. It's simple, but a tasty session option.

Poured from a 16oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a bright gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus fruits, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a grainy bready flavor from a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some citrus and caramel sweetness quickly follow. The hops presence is quite complementary and is a bit stronger than most beers in the style creating a very good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Very tasty, goes down quite easily, not filling at all, mild kick, good representation of style, this is an excellent BBQ beer to pound down for a very long time.
