What better to have on Halloween than a pumpkin ale? This 5.4% ABV pumpkin ale from the Saranac Brewing Company of Utica, New York is brewed with cinnamon, allspice and cloves. The beer pours a dark amber, dark chestnut in color. There is a short head of light off-white foam. The aroma is spices, with the cloves most evident, followed by the cinnamon. The taste is light pumpkin, vanilla and spices. It is well carbonated and tingles in the mouth. Better than some pumpkin ales, not as good as others.
