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.

12oz bottle. Pours a deep copper amber color with a one finger slightly creamy head. Nose is light hops and fruit. Tastes like mild tart cranberry with malty toasty notes dominating and a semi-sweet finish. Light to medium in body with ample carbonation.

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)

hershiser2 (2004) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 10, 2014
$1.75 Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours brownish red with a tiny dusting of a head. Smells of cheap lager, cranberry, grape... almost a champagne smell. Tastes of heavy cranberry, almost candied, but not sweet. Finishes with a strong cheap lager taste.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Aroma of heavy yeast, cherry, cranberry, and caramel. Pours heady and red. Taste is dry and very yeasty with subtle cranberry. A little too much bread and not enough taste.

MaBeer1972 (1791) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 4, 2010
A very tasty and easy drinking clear light amber brew from Harpoon. Proceeds go to charity. How fitting. Aroma is light biscuit, almost lager-like. Flavor of the cranberry is subtle but evident. Nicely balanced by some light malts and bitter-spice hop finish. Well worth a try.

Amber color with thick white head. Slight yeast and cranberry aroma. Dry malty flavor with some cranberry. Tart finish from cranberries. Would go great with Thanksgiving dinner,

tnkw01 (1709) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Bottle. Light reddish-brown. Medium size head. Seems to have more cranberry aroma than flavor. Most of the cranberry taste is in the after taste. Not a bad beer but won’t drink again.

Amber pour, faint aroma of cranberry, slightly tart mild cranberry flavor. Not bad but nothing special.

closey22 (1628) - Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Clear amber with thin off-white head; aroma is light and malty, as is the flavor; slight hint of fruit in the finish along with a dry yet sweet maltiness; feels fizzy. There is a hint of cranberry throughout. Not a bad beer. It kinda grew on me as I went through all 12 ounces.

A - Pours a fairly clear amber-reddish color with a half-finger of off-white head. The head fades quickly to a ring leaving behind some spots of lacing on the glass. S - Aroma is full of bready malts and some sweet and slightly sour cranberries. Could have used a bit more of a fresh fruit aroma, the aroma is a bit lacking for a cranberry ale. T - Starts off with some sweet and slightly tart cranberry flavor and some background toffee malt. Through the middle, some light spices and join in. The finish is a mix of sweet fruit flavor and a touch of bitterness with a bit of malts in the background that lingers nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels a bit syrupy and a touch thick. Finish is tart and has some lingering sweetness. D - Very drinkable. The flavors and balanced and light, and not too empty. Could have used a bit more fresh fruit flavor in there. The aroma was really lacking though.
