A special surprise arrived from our east coast friends @ Narragansett Brewing in Rochester New York. They sent us a 6 pack of their Light and Lager in 16 oz pounder Tall Cans. Not every day you get beer in the mail!
Narragnasett Lager: According to the website, the Lager is “brewed just right for drinking—crisp and refreshing.” Good thing too, cause that’s what we did with it. Lucky. It didn’t say anything about that on the can. It also didn’t say on the can that it was 5% Alcohol. I guess that’s the way they do it in New England. Around these parts we need to see that info ON THE CAN!

A liquor based on the extremely alcoholic and very old recipe (c1700) for root tea. The original brew was made with anise, cloves, and birch bark, and the modern version is 100% organic spirit is made from wild roots and herbs, with very strong notes of anise, birch, vanilla, citrus and pepper.
Root Tea was actually an alcoholic beverage taught to the settlers by the Native Americans...
At first glance the bottle itself has a great design. Rounded with a cork, Root already distinguishes itself from most..err..ummm..whiskeys? No this is not really a whisky but a different type of liquor. Though its name eludes to a sweet taste, in actuality its not nearly as sweet as expected. It has a similar first taste as Jager but finishes different. More drinkable than jager, but more sweet than a typical whisky it has the possibility to be drank straight up or mixed.
