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, 6% ABV.

Poured a clear orange color with a pretty much nonexistent head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and little bit of sweetness. Taste is faint pumpkin and spice. If the taste was more intense this would be outstanding. Texture is watery which subtracts from overall appeal.

Not bad! No head, but a nice seasonal cloudy orange hue. Slightly hoppy, an understated pumpkin flavor, but good on an October evening.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 Clear ruby with almost no head. Fairly rich in pumpkin aroma with subtle cacao. Taste is quite spicy with cacao, cinnamon and pepper in addition to the pumpkin. Texture is still a little watery. I rated this fairly low last year but the beer I have in hand is quite good. Did the beer change or did I change? The oatmeal stout version of this beer is fantastic.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours a clear orange/amber with a thin off white head that disappears immediately. Aroma has light pumpkin and a tangy sweetness that reminds me of ketchup. Flavor is tnagy with mild pumpkin and spice...still reminding me of ketchup...i hate ketchup. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish is tangy/earthy with a touch of spice. Dislike.

It's a pretty mild pumpkin. If you wait 1/4th of a year forth is, you're in a sad state. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer pours an amber, golden color with almost no head and no lacing at all. The beer smells like a mild pumpkin scent that lingers. The taste is overly carbonated carbonated and bubbly with a mild pumpkin back end. The mouthfeel is over carbonated and somewhat watery. Overall, this was one of the worst pumpkin ales I’ve ever a had. If you don’t like pumpkin and want carbonation...then this is your beer.

12oz bottle pours a hazy pale brown color. Pumpkin pie flavors with cloves a dominant spice flavor. A little harshness.
