Narragansett Brewing Company: Light

Official description from the brewery:
Quality Supreme: This lighter version of the original lager is brewed with six row malt, seedless hops, our proprietary lager strain, and the purest water around. Winner of the bronze medal at the 2010 World Beer Championship. Winner of the silver medal in the 2011 World Beer Championship. Winner of the bronze medal at the 16th Annual Great International Beer & Cider Competition in Providence, RI 2012. Taste & Enjoy: Taste the perfect balance of malt flavor and crisp refreshment. If you’re looking to cool down after a tough afternoon of mowing the lawn, then this is the beer for you. Quenching and light, it’s got the same alcohol content and calorie count as a typical domestic light beer, but does it without sacrificing taste the way those others do. The History: Narragansett Brewing Company actually produced one of the first light beers in the U.S. back in the ’60s. It was called “96” because it had 96 calories. Unfortunately, that offering was ahead of its time. Even more unfortunate was the packaging, which unlike the beer it contained, was anything but ahead of its time. In truth, it was one of the ugliest packages ever produced. The beer tasted good, but nobody really wanted to try it to find out.
