I looked a long time for a great pumpkin ale that actually tasted like pumpkin. Buffalo Bills actually tasted like liquid pumpkin pie and ale mixed. It had the right amount of seasoning and wasn’t bitter. It will the cornerstone of my Fall lineup.

Pours copper brown with almost no head. Tastes pretty tame. Not much to it. Definitely smells better than it tastes.

This pours a semi-cloudy copper color with a slight, off-white head. The scent is mild with prominent tones of pumpkin and spices. The texture is fairly watery, but at least there is a good deal of pumpkin and spices in the flavors. This is hardly Pumpking, but if this all that is left or it’s the only pumpkin beer you can find in your area it’s not too bad.

Drinking from the bottle. Tastes very spicy, almost a Pumpkin Spice ale. I have to wonder about the labeling, says they are America’s Original. I actually enjoyed this, taste like pumpkin, not pumpkin pie or pumpkin roll, just plain pumpkin.

This is one that I would have poured out if not for the fact that pouring out beer is alcohol abuse. Amatuer flavor in a bottle.

12oz bottle. Burnt orange color, small head fades, no lacing, clear. Aroma is strong, sweet, and I get nutmeg more than any other spice. Taste has hints of pumpkin and spice, not overpowering. Well blended, more refined than others I’ve had. A little thin on the mouthfeel. Solid entry in this crowded and overrated category, I think Bill’s been doing this style longer than others.

Amber color, medium sized creamy head. Mild aroma of biscuits (the spices probably). Simple flavor, some simple caramel and easy spices. Simple final too, correct bitterness.
Another boring pumpkin beer.

This is an average pumpkin ale in aroma and taste, but the aftertaste is horrible, which knocks it down a few notches. Don’t need to have ever again.

This poured a darker yellow color with a white head. Aroma was green vegetal pumpkin and very light spices. Flavor was much the same, very watery and not very flavorful of anything.
