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.

Saranac has jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon with a more spiced than pumpkin flavored beer. Cinnamon, allspice and cloves lightly blended with malts and pumpkin "essence". My beer poured a bit thin.....I think it was my fault on the way I pulled the tap. Swishing the brew brought on a short but fluffy head.

Good sized head of big fluffy bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Spicy dusty aroma. Allspice, ginger and pumpkin. No too bad. Light and effervescent nose. Color is a dark orange brown. Hmm, not very good flavor. Dry, dusty, bitter and pretty empty. No body. More spices and no substance. Pretty crappy in my opinion and I would probably avoid this.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Draught at Old Chicago in Coralville, IA. Clear light brown color with thin off white head. Smells of pumpkin pie, nutmeg, and a touch of cinnamon. Flavors are similar, but not as prominent as they are in the aroma. Not cloying, just right. There is a delicate sweetness on the tongue with light malty caramel at the end.

enjoyable pumpkin ale, it has the taste and feel of the season, a lighter ale with a nice touch of spices, it doesnít over power which is most important in a specialty seasonal beer like this. not bad at all.

This is actually a pretty decent pumpkin beer. Not as spicy as some that I have tried, but definitely something I would drink again.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2009 I was really excited when i found this beer but after the first few sips I was generally disappointing. a weak pumpkin ale that I could possible see complementing a pumpkin pie with its clove aftertaste but this beer dosent stand well on its own.

Bottle. Pours copper with a small off-white head. Nose is spicy - clovbes, light cinnamon, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie mix. Taste is a bit tamer than the aroma. Lighter pumpkin pie mix flavors, soft clove, subtle cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. Body is light-medium and smooth. Some creaminess to this. Finishes with more spice notes, light sweetness and pumpkin pie notes. This is how I like pumpkin beer, not overpwoering with the spice. Finally, a beer Saranac hasnít screwed up too bad!

orange/bronze color, very clear, head is almond-colored. aroma is bready with a decent amount of clove. flavor is mostly sweet with the cinnamon and clove coming through. pumpkin is not at all overpowering and a little toastiness comes through in the finish. body is light and overall, not that interesting of a beer, although far from offensive.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a trace of a tan head. The aroma is spicy and hot and not entirely pleasant. The flavor is dry, spicy and hot. The spices are hard to identify but are nothing like pumpkin pie. Not one of Saranacís better offerings.
