Reviewed on 10/25/08. Bottle. Pours a dirty-ish red with a small light pink head. Aroma of grainy malt, vegetable stew, and cranberries. Flavor is full of cranberries and an odd-tasting grainy malt (cereal I guess?). Also some burnt smokey malts, not sure where that came from. Kind of weird, but not bad either.
Update 11/6/08. Bottle. Pours light red with a small ring of white head. Aroma of wheat malt with a slight hint of light sweet fruits and diacetyl. Flavor of lots of diacetyl. It's hard to get past that...maybe some light cranberry in the finish. Other bottles that I have had didn't have as much diacetyl but this one is particularly strong in that department. I don't know why, but all Sam Adams beers seem to have this diacetyl component and it does not agree with me. This is a much better beer without the diacetyl but I'm going to rate it as is because I don't think this is a rare occurrence.
