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.

Interesting label. Sweet pumpkin spice aroma mixed with odd tart fruit. Taste has some veggie, perhaps pumpkin, nothing like pumpkin pie. At times has a soda feel to it. Familiar Saranac finish. The overall taste bud effect evolves from a sweet greeting that feels completely lager like to a medium alky industrial malt bitter bite that hangs for a moderate time.

Amber with little to no head. Pumpkin pie aromas definately come off of the nose as well as some spicy malt notes, almost like those found in a scented candle. The Taste itself certainly is similar to pumpkin, but there is also a hearty spice presence. The finish is a bit souring, lengthy and chewy. Not a bad brew, but it misses the mark to be a good fall beer.

Poured a opaque brownish red color with a white head. Has a nice taste of pumpkin and spices. Very lite, and enjoyable. Finished with nice cinnamon taste on the tongue.

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 that’s 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.

[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.
