a decent brew that you'll only want to have one of. Interesting, but try buy a bottle before the 6 pack

The initial aroma has a hint of pumpkin pie to it. Of the pumpkin ales, it tasted best to me. Nothing great but not bad either. Interesting for the season.

Looks nice. Deep, golden, hazy ale.
Smells like fresh-baked pumpkin pie. Smooth, malty, spicy flavor, but too thin for me.
Watery mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 Well, this was a decent beer, smells of Pumpkin. Initial taste of pumpkin and nutmeg, but it finishes really weak--almost no hops. It’s like drinking pie!

More pumpkin in the flavor and aroma than the other pumpkin ales I've tasted. Definitely some nutmeg in both as well. Nice orangish-brown color, not much of a head.

I usually don't get into novelty beers, but I'll try anything once: Hazy amber-brown with a thin head. Mild carbonation; light texture, even watery at times. Big, spicy flavors/aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Cinnamon lingered on the tongue and kind of dried it out. A little hop bitterness was detected in the finish. Some sugary, pumpkin-flavored sweet notes, too. Gladly, though, it wasn't overly sweet like other pumpkin ales I've had.

12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a brilliant copper color. Excellent clarity. Not much in the way of a head, though. A slight ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass was about it. Aromas are mostly of fresh pumpkin, and lots of spices.
Very sweet & spicy to the palate. Thin mouthfeel, and too much carbonation make for a not so pleasant drinking experience. Overall, it's ok, but nothing to go out of your way for.

Drinking this beer makes me want to get a bio-engineering degree and create a bacteria that will rid the world of pumpkins. Buffalo Bill's Brewery? It should be called Buffalo Bill's Cowpies.

Ok saw this in my local grocer bought one 12 ozer in the brown bottle says on the label "Brewed and Bottled by Portland Brewing Co., Portland ,Oregon".
Nice enough beer to look at..a darkish orange colour witha medium sized pure white frothy head.
A beer with a most strong aroma of pumpkin pie thats highly spiced..I liked it.
Taste is a big let down after the tremendous aroma..very weak and with a strange astringency at the back of the tongue.
Very watery and somehow over carbonated mouthfeel.
Pretty easy to drink but a severe dissapointment after the great aromas.
