The night of drinking wasn’t over yet. My sister and I ended up at a local bar a few miles down from the hotel. I figured that I had to try Narragansett while I was up there. I pretty much figured that it was like a local brew to compete with macros, so I wasn’t expecting anything crazy from them. But, I did want to try it.
Style: American Adjunct Lager
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The Lager is old reliable. It was the first beer brewed by ‘The Original Six’ back in 1890, the bestselling beer in New England from the 1930s to the 1970s, and the official beer of the Boston Red Sox from 1944-1975.”
Random: While I was out antiquing, I did find a lot of old Narragansett stuff. Had it been in better condition, I would have considered purchasing it.
This brew poured a straw yellow color with a one finger head that dissipated quickly. It didn’t leave any lacing on the glass, but some carbonation was visible in the body. It basically looked like a normal macro brew. The nose had a very, very slight hint of grass and sweetness. At least it smells slightly better than a macro. The taste was very crisp with a little sweetness, but nothing remarkable. The body was very thin, which again, I expected and also presented with a crisp finish. Although this was a very simple beer, it went down really easily. This would be a better option than a macro, but not something that I would grab for if I had other options.
