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.

Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. The aroma has a light cranberry fruity sweetness, with light toasty malts. The flavor has a bready and toasted malty base, some light cranberry sweetness, low bitterness, and some grainy notes. Better than I expected it would be.

5/1/15. 12oz bottle from Bird Dog. Happy International Tuba Day! Clear amber pour, maybe some pink? Very small short lived head. Faint fruity aroma, otherwise malty and plain. I wouldnt guess cranberry. Cranberry more present in flavor, not overwhelming, lightly bitter, sweet, and tart, bready, caramel. Could be worse.

PorterPounder (7768) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Savannah, Ga. - Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, medium thick off- white head. Muddled aroma, slight cranberry essence, hint of topsoil. Dates, raisins, fruit cake a touch of topsoil. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not blowing me away.

blankboy (7598) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle [12oz]. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Mild aroma of sweet berries, biscuity malt and grain. Slightly watery flavour of sweet berries, mild cranberry tartness, caramel malt, grain and a slightly unpleasant finish. Light to average bodied. A decent Fruit Beer but its a little mild and bland for my liking.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7521) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel color with a medium sized foamy beige head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was faint tart berries and a touch of nutty malt. The flavor was nutty and a touch roasty with a faint vague tart berry note and a sour tangy finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle: pours a transparent deep amber with ruby hues and a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity malty nose with some light fruity notes and a touch of tartness. Starts with decent fullness and pale malty sweetness with a good cranberry tart balance before a drier doughy finish. A pretty true to style and drinkable brew.
