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.

Ungstrup (34227) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a fast disappearing orangey head. The aroma has notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of pumpkin, cinnamon, and caramel malts, leading to a dry bitter finish.

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.

yngwie (16483) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. It’s an unclear, golden beer with a small, dense, off white head. Pale malts, generic fruityness and a faint spiced hint in the aroma. The flavor is lightly spiced, but mostly fruity and malty. Medium body, low but pleasant carbonation level. Quite decent, easy drinkable. 130906

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
A: The beer pours a rather pale orange/amber color with a short live off-white head. S: Tart apple cider mixed with garbage and some pie spices. A pretty good summary of the aromas on this beer. Quite watery with a touch of straw, maybe some lemons. T: Flavor is better, but not good. Some bread and malt sweetness with a little spice flavor. There’s also a strong tea and bad apple cider flavor. M: Very light, watery, with medium carbonation. O: Not nearly as awful as I feared, but not good.

This bottle was made by Portland Brewing. It’s good, well balanced, but not as deft or stylish as the version made by McAuslan in Montreal, which is the same beer, though it doesn’t say so on the label.
