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.

A bit too thin. Pours a nice dark orange with a tiny white ring. Aroma is faint malt and spice. Flavor is nice, not overly spiced or sweet, mainly because it’s a bit too bland. Too watery as well.

From a 12 oz bottle. The body poured with a dull copper brown type color. The head is fairly bright white and thin. The aroma is caramel with a little bit of pumpkin and cloves. The taste has some fairly sweet and spicy notes. It has clove along with some caramel and vanilla. I find the vanilla cloying, like in their porter. A passable beer, but it needs some actual pumpkin taste.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Clear red body. Light spiced flavor, cinnamon comes through the most. Not much Pumpkin flavor, but it has a nice clean taste.

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.

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 doesn’t 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.
