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

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 from a can into a Victory tulip

A- pours a clear shade of orange with a two finger white head. Beer is nearly perfectly transparent, head is robust...looks great!

S- the citra hops come through, but they're very mild. Disappointing

T- getting some biscuity-like sweetness as well as some citrus from the citra. The beer is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. Very crisp

M- very light bodied, but that's warranted in this situation. It's not "thin" though, just light

O- this is going to become my go-to this summer. Tasty, light, refreshing, cheap, and it comes in tallboy cans. Love this
