2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
22 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy brown color with monstrous cream-colored head. Smells like cranberry juice with that acidic vomit-like aroma that I really despise in a lot of beers. Tastes like sweet malts and cranberry juice. What else do I really need to say? Not good, at all.

Had during Christmas while palying Madden. Forgot to rate. Aroma of malt and some sour cranberry. Poured gold more or less. Flavor was mostly a boring malt flavor followed by a sour cranberry flavor. Was kind of dull on the palate. Not the best beer by any means. Did not really enjoy.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
22oz bottle acquired in trade with Saarlander (as part of the Mystery Swap v2.0). Poured a medium and hazy amber color with a huge, huge sized off white head. Aromas of cranberries, light caramel and a perfume. Tastes of mainly tart cranberries. Not too much going on with this beer and the cranberries where a little on the artificial side.

Small, soapy head. Slightly cloudy ambered hue. Smells faintly of sweet fruits (cranbeeries) and a bit of corn. Tastes less of cranberries, more of cereal and with a slightly funky-sweet finish. Crisp mouth feel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is sweet cranberry. Or it is cranberry and raspberry. It is sweet berry. A luminescent apricot amber color with a decent white head. Starts berry sweet, and a bit thin. The bitter cranberry competes with what might be hop. In the event it finishes interestingly bitter. Not an ideal match for hot salsa. My bad. It’s really good though. So I am off the average - way off. My good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from BevMo. Pours a bright reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is primarily of sweet malts, with tart cranberries and floral hoppiness also evident. Flavor seems like a decent amber - toasty and litghtly caramelly malts with tart fruits and a bit of spice in the hop finish. Medium body and gentle carbonation. A drinkable holiday ale, but not outstanding in any way.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours red with a decent white head. Aroma has some cranberry, too bad the taste does not. Mostly a watered-down pale with some earthiness. Disappointed.
