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.

This really wasn’t too bad. Most beers that try to put some wierd fruit or vegatable it it come out gross, but this one actually tastes like pumpkins. It could use a little less carbonation and more maltiness though. It is what it it.

Quite spicy with a good malty consistency. Unfortunately, it’s overly spicy with a lack of good pumpkin flavor. A decent, drinkable pumpkin beer, but would have like much more of a pumpkin flavor.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2004 Dark golden color, almost no head. Cinnamon and pumpkin aroma. Pumpkin and cinamon flavor. A little over carbonated.

Rib Eye (148) - USA - OCT 29, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2006 Quite a good pumpkin ale; dry and clean with lots of nutmeg and spice on the tongue. Tastes more like cold liquid pumpkin pie than a beer, though some nice malt qualities underlie.

Dark gold to copper color, large bubbles around the edge. Very spicy aroma and taste (nutmeg and cinnamom maybe?) Spice sticks around through the lingering finish.

Yummy nutmeg goodness! Brownish-orange color, sweet spicey aroma. What a great fall beer!

The strong aroma of pumpkin and ginger was really promising on this one, but the flavor really didn’t deliver. With a little more pumkpin flavor and a little less carbonation I think it would have been a "must-buy" every year around Halloween. As it stands though it was like a lot of fruit beers I have tried where the bark was better than the bite. I am going to try to hunt down a Pumpkin Stout!

This beer is interesting to say the least. It is something that I have never tried or tasted before. It is like a pumpkin pie in liquid form. Maybe if they added vanilla to it, it might taste better. Just a thought though because I don’t like pumpkin pie without vanilla ice-cream.

Bazarre. I laughed when I first took a whiff of this beer. Overwhelming perfume of nutmeg and cinnamon. Tastes like spicy pumpkin pie with a hint of barley malt. Mouthfeel was a bit on the spicy side as well, I don’t think a pumpkin ale can really stand alone without an excellent malty warmth to back up the strong addition of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, etc.
