BCTC 2015. Pours a hazed amber with a medium sized white head. Soft malt, light oxidization, cranberry on the nose. Medium bodied, sweet, oxidization, fruit. Tart and oxidized on the finish, a bit weird.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Poured a clear, rose-tinted amber with a short cap of off-white head. Nose was odd... airy, dusty artificially-sweetened cranberries.. some sweet malt, too.. Flavor picked up husky, artificially-sweetened cranberry concentrate, pale malt, and some tartness around the tongue. Short, flat, and empty finish... almost creamy across the middle. There was nothing good that I got out of this one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of the infamous Binnys singles rack (Orland Park, Il). Pours a medium hazy amber pour with offwhite medium head that begins to dissipate. Aromas are tart cranberries, not sweet, with cereal maltiness and a touch of skunk. Initial is tart cranberries, light cereal sweetness, no earlier evident skunk in the brew. Light fruit sweetness, but largely a tart natural cranberry feel. Finish is more fruit apparent, leaves a touch of tartness and flavor in the aftertaste. Pretty good, surprisingly. Decent body, still light and sessionable. A little one dimensional. But, this is not as bad as people seem to think.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Found this one on the close out aisle. Cost a Dollar. Might have been over priced. Aroma was of an ale but with some kind of sour smelling fruit. Maybe i was cranberry, maybe not. Flavor was consistent throughout, but it was pretty bad. Can’t fault it on the mouth feel. That part was decent. There was a reason it was on the close out aisle.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Now under the Sand Creek name, but still not very good. Pours bronze with a small tan fizzy head. The aroma has musty cranberries and lightly roasted malt with a cobweb character. Medium body with soft carbonation. Starts pleasant enough with some smooth cranberry and some malt. The finish unfortunately gets medicinal and tinny with the cranberry. Fair at best.
