Narragansett Lager is the best American style lager that I have ever had, and just might be the best American lager out there.

In comparison to PBR, Narragansett Lager has a bit more body and less sulfuric taste, and a slight lemony flavor that is noticeable in the aftertaste.

Not my normal style of beer, but is a good session beer on a hot summer day. Also a safe bet to buy for events like parties and whatnot

Pours with bright clarity , golden amber with a soapy head that fell fast. Nose is corn, grits, corn sweetness and some fresh cut hay. Lightly sweet and no apple on the nose at all. Taste is light, lightly sweet and has a bit of thin apple. Thin malt with a bit of light watery body . Touch of sulfur on the nose at first but that dissipates. Smooth but has a nice bite on the tongue from carbonation. Refreshing with no real hop bitter - maybe a hint of it and some lemon in the dry finish.

This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a thick, fizzy head. The aroma is slightly malty and grainy. The taste is fairly simple and light. This is fairly decent tasting for being a lighter beer. I would definitely take this over a Miller/Bud/Coors any day.
