bottle poured a medium amber in color that with a brisk pour produced a two finger head and had ample carbination. smell is cinnamon, clove, allspice, malt, and some sweetness. taste is light in body, malted with the above spices, and finishes with some vanilla and mild bitterness. not a bad brew, little weak on the pumpkin, but at least is not terribly over spiced. about par for what is expected from a saranac and for the price is a nice holiday beer. alobar (3793) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 2, 2007
Pours a clear brown amber color with no head. Mild aroma fo spice and vanilla. Taste is more brown ale than pumpkin ale. Soem hints of spice-enjoyable beer, but weak for a pumpkin beer. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottle. Nice golden amber body. Aroma is faint spices and pumpkin. Flavor has an intresting green apple flavor, off flavored spice and very light pumpkin. This was actually Better than i expected. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007
12 oz bottle. The colour is darkish copper, and it begins with a decent head. The head fades, but leaves decent lacing. The aroma is malty, with some spice just below the malt; it almost reminds me of the spicy smell of a Belgian wit. Maybe some cinnamon as well. The taste is quite sweet, with the vanilla moving up in the mix. A citrussy bitter finish. Medium body, with medium to high carbonation. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2007

Bottle: Pours a clear copper color with a white head. Aroma, light pumpkin, some faint spicing. Flavor, thin and wartery, some pumpkin, light spicing of cinnamon and nutmeg. In the end it’s just kind of bland. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2007
On tap @ oles Buffalo NY. Decent spicy pumpkin aroma. Cinnamon, allspice, clove. Slightly biscuity with pumpkin pie flavor. Overall not too bad. light to medium body & mouthfeel n49921 (108) - USA - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice amber with a white head. Average lacing. Aroma is spice. Flavor is a bit of spice and a hint of malt, with a bit of a thin body. More spice than any pumpkin. Overall, solid but nothing special. Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Pours a deep amber-brown with a thin creamy off-white head that leaves patchy lacing. The nose is a malty spicy blend of allspice and faint vanilla, but I detect no pumpkin. Medium-bodied and slightly "grainy" on the tongue, with a clean faintly dry finish. The flavor is a round bready/sweet malt with a blend of allspice, light vanilla, cinnamon and faint clove. While this is another "pumpkin" beer that exhibits no pumpkin in its flavor profile, it does do a better job at finding a balance between the malt and spice than many of the others that I’ve sampled. A pretty decent spiced ale, but nothing I’ll seek out in the future. Gundarak (4) - Salem, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 18, 2007 does not count
Drank from bottle. Aroma smelled of pumpkin spices and a slight hint of vanilla. Easy to drink. Tasted the spices, but almost no flavor of pumpkin or vanilla was present.
