Surly One-Time Cranberry Sour Ale

Here's a beer that's popped onto the taproom list late last summer/early fall, and it still shows up again and again. I was able to get a keg for our Surly Showcase event a few weeks ago, and it's still hanging on, so I was able to get a pint after work and take notes. Here they go....

Clear, nearly-pinkish/bright crimson coloring, slim, but lasting, rose-white head.

Aromatics: tart 'n' fruity, just enough sweet and just enough sour.

In the mouth: it's tarter and tarter. A good amount of puckering going on, keeping time with the cranberries. A constant twist of sour and sweet. Real cranberry flavor coming through. Lightish, medium-y bodied, and utterly of ease to drink down. Piece o' cake tossing this back and enjoying the heck out of it. Heck, I'm going to call it, it's yummy. Put that down in the books.
