Cheap golden color with a ton of carbonation. Flowery and hoppy smell; actually very good. Taste is MHL.

Pours a cool looking straw yellow to golden color. However, the head dissapeared almost instantaneously and leaves no lacing. Green apple aroma and malts as the drink warms. A fairly straightforward malt taste but pretty much watery and not so flavorful. Nice crisp feel when cold.
A typical macro style lager brew. Perhaps a step above BMC. I can see myself having this on a 95 degree beach day.

Poured from a tallboy can into a 16 oz pint glass. Yellowish gold color with large, almost soda-sized carbonation, foamy short-lived head with only a trace of lacing. Smells of heavy malt. Tasty of cereal, corn, malt, bread, with a slight caramel aftertaste. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy and a little syrupy in the aftertaste. Drinkable.

This beer tastes very similar to mass produced golden lagers and pilsners such as Miller Light, Bud Light, etc.

One of the better macro brews. Wish it was available in the south.

Taste is very full for a cheap American lager. Can't compare to a higher quality craft, but if cash is tight Narragansett is a good choice.

Pours a finger and a half of head on a light golden body.
The aroma is mild grain.
The taste is okay, mild grain and touch of bitter.
The texture is light and fizzy.
It wasn't enjoyable, lacked any real aroma or flavor.
