Since its inception in 1985, America’s Original Pumpkin Ale has become a Fall tradition. Much of Buffalo Bill’s acclaim originates from this beloved autumn brew. Made with real pumpkin and spices, it has a golden amber color, and the sweet aroma of warm pumpkin pie.

Too sweet and far too much nutmeg for my taste. Might pass as a dessert beer, perhaps served with vanilla ice cream. .5 is a generous score.

nittanytide (264) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Poured orange/copper with a thin, white head. Aroma is sweet pumpkin. Taste is a little bit of pumpkin, but otherwise lacking. Mouthfeel is a little thin. I was hoping for something a little more robust.

From castanedas. Nutmeg spice nose and pumpkin full body. Decent balance and mild sweet spice taste. Ok seasonal beer. ---Rated via my mouth

I would swear I’ve wasted my money on this before and ratebeer just crashed one too many times and doesn’t remember it. Either way its pale amber with an orange tint, a white head that transforms inti a film in no time, and a weak pumpkin aroma. To its saving grace it does actually taste more like a beer than pumpkin pie like so many imitators. Yes, there’s your validation you marketing guys. A drinkable pumpkin flavored lager beer it is. Congratulations!

musinj6 (498) - Dedham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a relatively clear orange with little head and minimal lacing. Aromas strongly of pumpkin (more pumkin than spice, but the spice is there), toasted malt and some grassy hops. Mildly sweet up front then turns to tart, and finally sour with a little bitter to it. Medium body with moderate carbonation. smooth, unaggressive finish. Not that bad, actually.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Pours a clear brownish orange with a thin white head. Aroma is cinnamon, grains, and pumpkin. Taste is pumpkin and spice.

jhamp9 (1635) - Corinth, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2012
Clear orangish pour with a thin white head that is gone quickly. Faint pumpkin spice aroma. Taste is mostly spice and very little pumpkin with something odd I can’t quite place. Prickly carbonation.
