Narragansett Cream AleNarragansett Cream Ale
Notes: ‘Gansett Cream is made with quality ingredients like 2-row pale, Munich, Vienna, and Cara-malt for a creamy head! We used Columbus hops for bittering and a touch of Willamette hops for a slight hop aroma. Bright gold in color and brilliant in clarity, this session ale delivers an extra pop of hop bitterness found only in cream ales of the early 1900′s.

Narraganset is the baseball beer of my youth: it was advertised everywhere in the Boston area, especially on televised baseball games.I never drank much Gansett- this was the first time drinking the cream ale.

I wasn't expecting much.

The beer pours a four fingered head with some lacing, and a slight lemon smell from the head. The color is ice tea- pale gold.

The mouth feel is very smooth, with a touch of carbonation.

A nice clean finish with no characteristic flavors and a slight bitterness.

This is the new edition-much better than the older Gansett brew. It's a throwback to the older style of 50's-60's beers, but far superior to the macros of that era.

It's definitely worth a try- especially to taste an older style.

It's better on the warmer side which will bring out slight fruit to the finish.
