I just got finished mowing the lawn and weeding (which included getting bit by a spider, I think. No wall crawling abilities though), so I decided to stereotype myself. While I’m waiting for my lunch to cook, I’m drinking the most refreshing beer I could find in my fridge. A Narragansett Cream Ale.
Wait, you don’t know Narragansett? Their a Rhode Island Brewery, known for their easy drinking lager (only 4.99 a six pack. I have some of that in my fridge too). It’s the beer Quint drank in JAWS. It’s the beer of the 70s. And the best part is, both the Cream Ale, the Lager, and all their beers come in 16 oz cans. So not only is it affordable, there’s a lot of it.
But how does it taste?
Creamy. That’s the best way to describe this ale. It’s not a hoppy ale by any stretch. There’s a hint of hop at the tale end, but for the most part the malt shines through. It gives the beer an almost milky taste. That’s not right, but … let me think about this. Ever have a Malted candy? You know that flavor right when you get through the chocolate? That’s the flavor.
But you can drink this fast. It’s smooth, it’s easy and it refreshes the body after yardwork. The color is goldne, and there’s a very little, but strong white head. It looks like a light beer, but man does it have flavor. It inches close to the Pilsner category in my eyes. This beer is best drank cold. Very cold. Let it ooze through your system, cooling you off, relaxing you. Getting you ready for the game.
Seriously, Narragannsett may become my go to back-up beer. So glad it’s available here in NJ.
So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go crush my can, make my lunch and enjoy the rest of this brew. You should too.
Farewell and adieu to you fair Spanish ladies… farewell and adieu….
