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.

3.1

Less objectionable than I expected. The aroma is caramel, cranberry, bread. The appearance is clear, deep amber, whit head. The flavor is cranberry upfront, bready. Medium in body, actually a little thin. The finish is tart, cranberry, no hops at all. OK to drink.

$1.75 Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours brownish red with a tiny dusting of a head. Smells of cheap lager, cranberry, grape... almost a champagne smell. Tastes of heavy cranberry, almost candied, but not sweet. Finishes with a strong cheap lager taste.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a hint of cranberry.

rougeau13 (2958) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2012
Dark brown-amber with a modest cream colored head that laces just a bit. Aroma of nuts, bready malt, earth and light cranberry. The taste is malty with some cranberry sweetness and tartness and a very mild bitterness. Medium bodied, very slightly dry. Overall, pretty decent, the cranberry is quite mild and serves as more of an accent than a primary element.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours dark, clear reddish brown with off-white head. Notes of very light cranberry, sodium, some malt. Light-medium body with very high carbonation.....not impressed......

bigguns 22 has done a fine job rating this one as i would concur with everything bigg has to say. though i don’t see it quite as good but the jist is there and it seems redundant to repeat everyhing.

Bottle . Pours a dark brown color rather then a ruby red and pink. Very fruity and beer like with a tart aftertaste . Good for the point but not my favorite

3.2
jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Pours a four fingered faint pink head that slowly fades to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is light hops and fruit. Color is nice crystal clear amber. Flavor is tart cranberry and hops, dry finish. $2.75 for a 12oz bottle from Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH. Best by 1/15/2011.

Bottle from premier, this one didnt have much cranberries or grapefruit for me, it was pretty light tasting and it was alright, drinkable but not my favorite

A malty base with some sweetness to it, caramel and a very light hint of fruit. Odd finish like modeling clay.
