I half expected this to be overwhelmingly pumpkin flavored. But, to my surprise this was a very mild ale. Clove and nutmeg are present in the smell. Little to no head, and amber and cloudy color. Faint and pleasant pumpkin taste. I will be having another!

Pours a hazy golden brown with a frothy white head that doesn’t stick around long. Smells like your usual fare for pumpkin ales (nutmeg, cinnamon). Taste is pretty much the same with the addition of pumpkin and allspice. Overall a decent fall seasonal that doesn’t slam you with too much pumpkin pie essence.

Cloudy, straw-colored pour with plenty of carbonation. Some debris floating around.
A pumpkin ale with a sweet, pumpkin scent
Follows the scent closely, with the pumpkin dominating. Citrus and coriander in there as well. Starts well, but gets a little blander after the initial flavor.
Medium to light bodied, also very crisp and bubbly. Starts to overwhelm the flavor toward the end. It gets to the point where it feels like a light lager with pumpkin thrown in.
Started well, but ends a little disappointingly. I like the hints of pumpkin, but that ends up falling short by the finish. A little more balance between feel and taste would help.

I love pumpkin, so when I buy a beer that says "Pumpkin" on it, I expect to be able to taste it! This is not the case with this beer. VERY little spice or pumpkin flavor and overall just not a great tasting beer. Would not try again.

did not like this at first, although this beer has a hell of an aroma, but it does not carry over in the taste. The taste is like a b/m/c product only with some pumpkin and spices thrown in. Quite watery, but I have to admit...it’s an interesting beer and worth picking up a case once a year.

Spicy, Delicious, tasted much better than I expected.
We don't rate labels but if we did, I would give this label a high rating too.

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.

A good alternative to Harpoon’s Winter Warmer since Harpoon is not yet distributed on the West Coast.

The cinnomon in this beer is a little bit much ,but i could handle this with a roast or mince meat pie. This is the first pumpkin ale i’ve tried so it’s hard to rate. Still it gives off a real fealing of Hallween time of fall. I think it would be a great beer to cook with too.About half way through the beer, the cinnomon quiets down and the fresh baked pie taste comes forth. This will certainly be on the table for Thanks Giving Feast.

Orange color with fizzy head. Noticable aroma of spices, reminds me of fall. Initial strong taste of nutmeg and some pumpkin. This was my first pumpkin beer and I found the taste quite unique. Can’t imagine drinking more than 1 or 2 at a time, but overall pretty good.
