15. Cambridge Brewing
The Great Pumpkin Ale
Probably the biggest surprise was the beer that comfortably settled into last place. Will Meyers and his talented team at Cambridge Brewing are some of New England’s finest craftsmen, but the term “Bud Light,” “flabby,” and “watery” were thrown around a lot with regards to their Great Pumpkin Ale. Brewed with local, organic barley and sugar pumpkins harvested from The Farm School in Athol and Wilson Farms in Lexington, this was a beer that failed to live up to its lofty expectations.
Notable tasting note: “It has a watered-down quality reminiscent of Bud Light. This could be a new addition to their Bud Lime line.” -Meaghan Gardner
