Narragansett Brewing Company - Light Lager

Purchased From: Harvest Fine Wines & Spirits
Serving Type: 16 oz. "tall-boy" can, poured into a Becker pint

Having reviewed all of the other beers from Narragansett (the Lager, and the three seasonals) I felt it necessary to round out the bunch with the Light Lager. The beer pours a light straw body with moderate-to-high visible carbonation. The head is a stark white with an airy and voluminous consistency. The retention is moderate with a light crackling as the head fades away. There is little-to-no lacing to be found here.

The nose is high on sweet sticky malt and grain. There's a light bit of mustiness, with barely a hint of hops, as well. The mouthfeel is crisp but unrewarding. It's way to the fizzy side, far from robust. The taste is sweet and slightly sour. Light, watery grains define the beer with only a thought of hops. Solid as light beers go, but nothing special.

Final Verdict: D
