3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
32 ounce Saranac howler.
Glass: Dogfish Head pub glass.
Appearance: A large and dense light tan head sits on a clear amber body.
Aroma: Mild aroma with a light sweetness and a bit of spice. Cinnamon, caramel and vanilla come to mind.
Taste: The flavor is similar to the aroma, mild with a hint of sweetness and subtle spices. Mild slightly malty intro with a dash of cinnamon, pumpkin and vanilla by the finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Not a bad pumpkin beer by any means, a bit mild but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I won’t buy this again, but it’s worth a drink.

Bottle pour. Clear dark orange color with a thick cream head. The aroma is mostly yeast with a lite pumpkin note. This beer has a watery mouthfeel. The taste is pretty mild, light on the pumpkin but heavy on the spices. Overall a boring beer, and overly sweet.

Very nice for a pumpkin ale. The flavor is not overpowering and there is still a nice malt flavor that comes through.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quart bottle. Pours a clear dark orange-amber with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, malt, hops, and a hint of pumpkin. The spices come through more in the taste, allspice and cloves, some vanilla sweetness, with malt and a bit a squashy pumpkin. Lingering watery vanilla and spices. Not bad, but needs more of everything.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
32oz bottle. Sorta like a mini growler, I guess. Nothing really much to write home about. Amber color, small off-white head, not much lacing. I smelled a bit of pumpkin and cinnamon in the nose and a little in the flavors. But for the most part, this was a pretty bland and uninteresting pumpkin ale.

Had a growler of this in Rome recently. Pours a dark orange, slightly brown colour with almost no head. Aroma is light and of pumpkin and spice. Taste is malty with some sweetness and some bitterness to balance it. Medium body, smooth and a little thin on the palate, and average carbonation. Overall an average pumpkin ale.
