COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Pour a hazy dark orang with slight head. Pumpkin aroma is quite overpowering, but spice even overpowers that. The aroma somehow doesn’t transpire to the beer which seems somewhat flat.

Palatable ale with strong pumpkin and spice flavors to it. I liked it, may not be for everybody.

Slightly cloudy orange amber color with a decent head. Aroma is pumpkin with spices, and a faint hint of malt. Flavor is mostly pumpkin pie spice with some bitter at the finish.

I have to disagree that the taste wasn’t overwhelming with pumpkin. I could anticipate the pumpkin from the aroma and it was very strong on my opinion. I did not like this beer because the pumpkin was too strong.

Wanted to love it, but unfortunately, it was just mediocre. Very pumpkin in the nose. Very spicy on the palate with less pumpkin than expected. Slightly watery thinnish mouthfeel. Good, but definitely not great.

good amount of real pumpkin flavor in the finish, but im not getting the pumpkin pie experience I like in a pumpkin ale...thin and no spice

Not the best Pumpkin beer I have had but it worked in a pinch. Great cool fall day drinking. Well rounded ale but the spice was down played and the malt/barley took over and that to me in not a good thing with this style beer. I liked Ship Yard much better.

Out of bottle flat, sweet, just a very mediocre pumpkin ale. Last years I thought was better. Just not a lot a going on here.

12 oz- Light orange with an off-white bubbly head. Spicey aroma but flavor of a smoked beer. Just OK
