BEER INFO

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

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.

16oz. can into a chalice.

A: Bright orange, good clarity with a strong macro-effervesce showing. A bready textured, ivory white head of two fingers sits strong. A heavy foamy lace band for coverage.

S: Fresh barley, very clean, light to medium sense.

T: Fresh barley with a slight background hint of toasted bread. Light flowery orange, fruity notes of apple with a warming of tropical flower hops. Some hay with dried citrus peel finishes things out.

M: Crisp lager like mouthful, medium body, toasty, just like a good lager should.

O: A good summer blond with just enough citra hop accents to give this some zip. Very clean, crisp and easy to kick back to in multiples. A beer that probably won't get much love due to style, but this is very true, drinkable, and a light alternative for the summer time.
