Reviews: 99 Bottles On Gansett’s Cream Ale

By Steve Greenlee for Boston.com

Narragansett Beer has a new year-round beer. Narragansett Cream Ale will soon start showing up on store shelves, joining the Rhode Island company’s other year-round beers, Narragansett Lager and Narragansett Light.

Like each of Narragansett’s seasonal ales, the cream ale is darn good. Clear gold with a tall, fluffy head and lots of carbonation bubbles rising to the top, it smells lemony with light, grassy hops on the aroma. The beer tastes totally clean and has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Lemon accents come through, along with a subtle hop profile, though the beer has no bitterness whatsoever.
