COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Clear copper color with no head. Aroma of cranberry and grain. Slight cranberry flavor with grain presence. Not much else to the beer.

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.

12oz Bottle. Empty mineral nose. Pours clear dark henna and copper, with a foamy off-white thick head. Flavors come across to me mainly in hops, rosehips, and metallic, sharp malt sugar. Surprisingly bitter and noticeably thin in the cranberry flavor for me, I guess. I mean, I see it there, but it isn’t dazzling me. Was glad to see that this didn’t come across as punishingly sweet. Hard to tell how I really feel about this beer...

Bottle. Pours amber in color with a small off-white head. Sweet fruit aroma with caramel, cranberries and floral hops. Flavor was sweet and tart with caramel, bread, grains and subtle cranberry

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.

Pours an amber red with a fruity spicey aroma. Has a sweet finish and goes down smooth. Delivers on the description.

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.
