3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby Red with thin white lacing. Malty, caramel, yet slightly grassy aroma.. Malts upfront on the palate but overall crisp and clean with a bit of spice and earthy bite on the back.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ar: Hint of breadiness and tart cranberry.
Ap: Crystal-clear copper - medium off-white head with moderate retention - a ring of foam and small pad of lacing.
T: Toasty malt, pineapple fruitiness, up front - light sweetness - bready malt with a cranberry tannin dominates mid palate - bitter fruitiness on the finish that becomes a bit metallic.
P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry.
O: Malty autumn ale, with some pleasant cranberry notes - some of the fruit tannins could stand to be cut back.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle best by 02/15/13. Nose is fruity, some cran-rasp mix with grain and leafy green hops. Dark amber red with a short tan head. Taste is lightly bitter with spikes of intense sweetness and a settling shroud of acrid tartness. Mild medium body with a little fizz but an uninteresting texture. Cranberry is muted.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Less objectionable than I expected. The aroma is caramel, cranberry, bread. The appearance is clear, deep amber, whit head. The flavor is cranberry upfront, bready. Medium in body, actually a little thin. The finish is tart, cranberry, no hops at all. OK to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Mild aroma of sweet berries, biscuity malt and grain. Slightly watery flavour of sweet berries, mild cranberry tartness, caramel malt, grain and a slightly unpleasant finish. Light to average bodied. A decent Fruit Beer but it’s a little mild and bland for my liking.

Malt aroma with light tangy fruits. Dark orange color with a medium off white head. Light beginning with a sweet tangy finish. Might have been a little old. The place I got it from is know for that. (Davis St. Package Store Oakville, CT)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty dark amber with more of the red hues and can produce a frothy head. Fruity aromas of sour apple, juicy fruit gum, cranberry, slight grapefruit, slight perfumlike hints. Flavors of cranberry actually come through though more light, can be noticed well through the whole flavor experience. Other more subtle flavors of slight caramel, with a hint of nuttyness and very light bread. The bitter dry end doesnt seem to balence well with all the overall flavors. Slightly sweet, tart, dry. A sip here and there is rather lightly tasty but to fast and it becomes old fast.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown-amber with a modest cream colored head that laces just a bit. Aroma of nuts, bready malt, earth and light cranberry. The taste is malty with some cranberry sweetness and tartness and a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied, very slightly dry. Overall, pretty decent, the cranberry is quite mild and serves as more of an accent than a primary element.
