Summertime Citra Ale

Roll out the Barrel: 4.2% Alcohol by Volume and 24 IBUs. This year, we’re brewing a summer seasonal for the first time! Our Summertime Citra Ale is an easy-drinking, session Blonde Ale that pays homage to ‘Gansett’s original Pale Ale.  Available on tap and in 16oz cans from May – August, the Summertime Citra Ale is too good to miss!

Quality Supreme: Narragansett Summertime is a light session ale made with two row pale malt, citra, galaxy and chinook hops. The citra hops are a very popular, newer variety that deliver aromas of citrus and passion fruit without overpowering the taste buds.  The beer is blonde in color and the mild kiss of the hops complement the pale malt perfectly, making it extremely drinkable.  The Summertime Citra Ale is craft brewed in small batches at North American Brewery in Rochester, NY under the supervision of the award winning brewmaster, Sean Larkin from Trinity Brewhouse and Revival Brewing. Winner of the Silver Medal in the 2011 World Beer Championships!

Taste & Enjoy: Summertime pours golden, producing a generous white head, and perfect carbonation. The malt flavor is smooth and subtle, balanced out by a crisp hop bitterness. Aromas of mixed fruits are very evident, but mild on the palate. The superior drinkability and lower alcohol content make this beer perfect for summer sessions on the beach, the boat, the backyard patio, or at the ballgame.
