Poured clear with an inch of pink-hued, white foam.
Retention was minimal leaving a thin layer on top of the beer. Lacing is below average leaving some blotchiness behind.
Aroma is tart, cranberry, with some balancing sweet. Acidic and a bit spice but both seem somewhat mild.
Taste is big on cranberries as should be expected. Tartness is there but not as big as I expected. There is a sweetness in the beginning of the taste that only grows in size throughout, culminating with the tart to give a heightened, almost sour taste.
Quite a bit of carbonation on high end of light body. A nice crispness.
Not that hard to drink but the sweetness does add up and eventually make it hard to session but I could definitely have a few more. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
