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.

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

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.

12 ounce bottle purchased at Total Wine Pembroke Pines, FL for $9.99/6-pack. Not bad.

halfonit (1228) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours a clear ruby/amber color. Aroma is of malts and hops with a very slight cranberry and brown sugar scent. Light and carbonated palate but it does have a nicer body than expected. Flavors that come through are malts, hops, cranberry, and black cherry. Leaves a dry, dirty malt finish. Nothing special. What ever happened to Sam Adams? Too bad nobody knows that 80% of their beers are made in OHIO.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear caramel with a moderate, frothy, off-white head. The head remains and leaves a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of cranberries, apple, caramel, bread and spice. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout with fruity notes and a hint of spice. The finish is long, sweet and slightly spicy. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this fruit ale is disappointingly simple. Cranberries seem to have so much potential as a brewing ingredient, but this brew underwhelms with simplicity. 2011-11-25

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,

closey22 (1202) - 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.

Boliv (1150) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Bottle. Pours clear ruby red with a small off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt, red berries and sour cherry, and wet gym socks. Flavor is a little sour malt, raisin, and slightly tart cherry/grape; a little cranberry in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, thin, and dry. Not great.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2011
Amber and clear - very good head. Taste is almost sour with nuts and then there’s the bits of cranberry. Described here as a fruit beer, but reminds me of a Vienna lager with the cranberry throwing it off a bit.

Holdwine (1128) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Really wanted to like this, but it was almost a pour. Its redemption was, as it warmed it became tolerable. Nice nose. Cranberry soda at first. Warming brought out a bit of pleasant malt. Still, a dud.
