Here's to swimmin' with bow-legged women...

Poured with a fizzy white head, crystal clear pale star color. It looks exactly as it should for what it is.

Smells like corn and American malt. Not in a heady way, more like a "Oh, I know this smell blindfolded as a American Pale Lager" smell.

You know what, It's not challenging or interesting or exciting, but I like it. David Chang loves Domino's pizza, I can love this. Sweet malt, hay, a bit of a corny taste.

Drinking this beer is only slightly more rewarding then most mass market lagers in America, and it is one that isn't horrible once it hits a few degrees below freezing like most of the others.

There's just something I appreciate about Narragansett, even if it's just a meh lager. It is always there, and is good enough, whenever you need it. That being said, there are always better options out there. Make of it what you will.

I don't know if it' the water, but NOT the beer of my youth! I know they tout that it's the same recipe, but I am not so sure......

Honestly not bad for what it is. Maybe I'm biased as a N'anglander. Has a bit of honey in the flavor and finish. Definitely on the sweeter side for a lager. Finally reviewing this after finding it on-tap at Portside on NAS Pensacola!

Wanted to try this one for a while. Just showed up within the last few years here. I was not disappointed or altogether impressed, but I do like this beer.

Purchased a 12 pack for $7.99 from a local beer/wine store. I could not find a date on the bottom of the can. The graphics on the side was a retro design with 1975 in bold letters. Cracked open the can and poured it into a mug. It poured a fizzy yellow with a decent head. The aroma was faint but then again my sinuses have been acting up. Bubbles streamed up the sides so evidence of carbonation. The taste which is the most important part of any review was crisp and clean. Mouth feel was smooth and refreshing. Over all a good beer. I would buy this again and keep at least a few six-packs stocked in the cooler and/or pantry.

As a new englander, this is my usual go to inexpensive beer. A tasty lager that is not overpowering nor exorbitantly weak either. Definitely to my tastes. I do recommend trying it out if you have not and if it is available in your area. Even if it is not to your liking the price is very reasonable so there is not much of a loss in the wallet and.
