BEER INFO

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.

Light gold colored beer with a slowly fading head.Aroma is very light frutiness.Taste is dominated by hops and pine needles.Another disgusting over hopped beer that makes it taste like Pine-sol.I would not recommend and will be very lucky to get through this crap.

I get a little malt, a little citrus and a little bite. Not very complex. Kind of watery. OK if you want to down a couple on a hot day and not get plastered, but not something I'd seek out.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a nice white head. There was no real and defiant smell to the beer. Taste is pretty bland for a summer beer, there is no stand out ingredient that really screams summer. Mouthfeel is a lightly carbonated beer that hangs around for a little bit. Overall it's a little below average and really not worth it. #t6pp

Nothing special. Very pale. Annoyingly bland after two.
