I was expecting a better effort. Not a whole lot of flavor, lacking any malt undertones. Take the label off and it would be an average amber ale.

Not the best not the worst Octoberfest I had. Tastes like a regular amber lager. No significant notes. Lacing is not to bad. loses the head quickly

Color and appearance is good but the aroma and taste has too much floral hops for the style. Also, the mouthfeel was rather watery which accentuated the bitter finish. Somewhat surprising considering how well balanced the Saranac pumpkin is.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bought a single bottle from Wegman's Hylan Dr on 10/5/14. Served in a dimpled mug at fridge temp.

Look: Medium amber with a thin white head.

Smell: sweetish with some spicy hops

Taste: caramel sweetness is not balanced by enough hops

Feel: ok, I guess

overall: mediocre
