COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In celebration of the fall harvest. Here's an autumn favorite that's as enjoyable as pumpkin pie. This hearty ale is brewed with cinnamon, allspice, cloves and vanilla. Look for a full body and amber color. We're sure you'll enjoy this special brew.

12oz bottled on 07/24/07. Color is dark amber with orange tints, completely lucid, small head but rather sticky lacing. Aroma is upfront cinnamon and really that seems to take over everything else. Taste is light and very clean and covered in light spices (kind of a mixed bag nothing too dominant over the other spices). Its just a light ale with spices and nothing off-putting, hey thatís enough. Just a faint bitter kick at the end.

More then i expected for saranac. Didnt go overboard with the pumpkin. Nice ginger, brown sugar aromatic head. First taste hits you with clover and ends with a honey pumpkin. One of the first pumkin ales i could drink more then one of at a time.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2007
[140-20061217] 12floz. Aroma holds light metallic spices. Deep amber body with a few sparse bubbles rising right from the bottom and a small foamy white head. Nice spicy nutmeggy anti-pumpkin flavour with a little dry bitterness -- like eggnog without the egg. Medium body with a nice clean feel. Great for the holidays with a good blend of nothing overpowering. A mutt beer, in a good way.

The beer poured a dark amber color from the bottle and only formed a very small white head that was quickly gone; it was somewhat cloudy. The aroma was a mixture of brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and of course, pumpkin. It tasted sweet, with a touch of bitterness, and some decent pumpkin flavoring too. The beer felt wet and smooth with a low level of carbonation. Not a great pumpkin ale, but it got the job done.

I love pumkin ale and I think this was one of the best I have ever had. Very light notes of pumpkin and nutmeg make this a real winner. TRY AND FIND IT IF YOU CAN!

blankboy (6074) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a large mostly-lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of all-spice, malt and pumpkin -- not bad. Watery flavour of sweet malt, pumpkin and spices -- though not as spicy as I wouldíve liked -- and a light bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. Decent enough, Iíve had much worse Pumpkin Ales.

jercraigs (7894) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Mabel. Dark amber body with a light orangey hue, small off white head. Lightly spiced - nutmeg or allspice and chinnamon? Muted metallic notes in the background of aroma, mild malt. Sweet malt flavour with similar muted spice as the aroma that add to the bitterness of a finish that is slightly sharp. Average palate. Not unpleasant but does little to impress.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 Pours clear orange with a medium, mostly diminishing, head. Good lacing. Aroma was pie-spice - nutmeg, allspice. Flavor of mainly spices; nutmeg, clove, cinnamon. Thereís also brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla. A good run-of-the-mill pumpkin beer. I really canít see why itís rated so low, except maybe Saranacís reputation.

Braudog (5752) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Poured crystal clear, medium amber with a inch of tiny bubbles forming the off-white head. Big spicy aroma, clove, nutmeg. Not quite as pronounced on the tongue, this starts mostly sweet-n-sour.
