Brewed using locally-grown cranberries, this beer captures the spirit of a true New England Thanksgiving: the harvest celebration and the sharing of food amongst friends. Fermented with a traditional ale yeast that lets the cranberries provide the signature aroma, this beer is balanced by the ‘bready’ notes of the Vienna and Munich malts.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, light beige head cover, light bands of lace. Aroma of malt and light berry. Taste is butter rum and malt, joined on the swallow by slightly bitter cranberry and light spice. Malt shows up again in a lingering finish. A simple brew, easy to drink.

I’ve seen this on the shelves the last few years and never thought once about buying it. This year someone left a bottle at my house, so I guess this is the year. Pours a medium copper color with a good sized white head that displays moderate retention and lace. Smells malty with caramel and brown sugar and that distinctive aroma of cranberries. Smell is sweet and fruity and not bad actually. Taste is exactly what I expected from the aroma. Brown bread, syrupy, caramel, cranberry sauce. It was fun at first, but about half way down the glass I got real tired of the fruity sweetness. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation, sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. One sweet and fruity beer that I’m glad I got to try, but that I can pass up again next year.

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.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a hint of cranberry.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had an auburn colored body with a small white half finger head that lasts throughout most of the beer, faded, spotty lacing. The smell had cranberry, and there was some allspice in the background. The taste was sweet, yet tart through the cherries, allspice is more subdued, light hops. The palate sat about a light to medium, sessionable, sweet dry aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is good for its style and I would have this again if I could get it again.

This was better then I thought but i thought it would be gross. Kind of boring with light cranberry tartness on a background beer that tasted a bit like a vienna or marzen.

From a bottle marked Best By: 02/15/12-278. It pours a reddish brown with a frothy but short-lived head that leaves plenty of clinging lace. Those cranberries are pretty evident in the aroma along with a sweet malty character. The body feels about medium. The cranberries seem to lose their lustre in the taste however. They’re there but harder to recognize. There was tart aftertaste.
