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.

12 ounce bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a clear rust color with a large fizzy tan head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of cranberry, pomegranate and grainy malts.

3.2
j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a medium sized lightly beiged off white head. Nutty malt, a bit of sweet malt, and a touch of cranberry (but I suspect it’s only because I’m looking for it). Medium bodied, a little sweet, a touch metallic, and a good amount of nutty malt. Finishes up with some sweet cranberry, a bit tart and more nutty malt, this time turning a tad bitter.

DocLock (11049) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Pours deep coppery with ruby highlights and a 2-finger frothy white head. Nose is caramel malt, earthy, slight cranberry. Tastes not very good at all, with an overpowering fake cranberry flavor, a lot of sticky cloying flavors, and a crappy finish. This one isn’t very good.
