3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at brewery. Poured reddish/pink and bright. Thin white head. Aroma and flavor were light cranberry, lightly tart and lemony. Seemed a bit thin but quite quaffable and appropriate for the season.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
