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.

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.

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 hasn’t 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5140) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2006
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 Saranac’s better offerings.

hopscotch (9742) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Spicy, malty nose with notes of allspice, cinnamon and vanilla. Well-balanced, mildly spicy, gently tangy flavor. Medium-bodied and oily with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, lightly spicy finish.

lamas (1396) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Bottle. A clear copper pour with a smallish light-tan head. Cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and some pumpkin in the aroma. Very thin and watery. Starts with a decent amount of caramel, malty sweetness and cinnamony spiciness. The taste is quite artificial. Finishes with a slight corny bitterness. A pretty lame effort, and this is coming from a guy who LOVES pumpkin beers.
