Good pumpkin taste, but the beer is too thin for a fall/winter seasonal. I would prefer the pumpkin taste in a heaver beer.

as soon as i poured it, this reminded me of the ginger cookies in the black and orange box that come out in the fall. the smell is identical. definately an interesting brew. lots of spice and cinnamon to go along with the pumpkin. i enjoyed it.

This is one that I would have poured out if not for the fact that pouring out beer is alcohol abuse. Amatuer flavor in a bottle.

Too sweet and far too much nutmeg for my taste. Might pass as a dessert beer, perhaps served with vanilla ice cream. .5 is a generous score.

Nice spicy aroma and a lovely golden autumn color. Taste like a pumpkin pie flavored beer. I normally don't like flavored beers, but the pumpkin spice flavors blend well with the beer. Not much head on this beer but it taste great.

I will admit I’m more of a stout fan but I wanted to try a few pumpkin ales this fall and this was my first try. Weak aroma.There is a hint of cinammon and nutmeg but not strong. If you’re looking for a pumpkin pie flavor, you’ll not find it here. Very slight pumpkin flavor but overall quite disappointing.

My overall impression is higher than the individual components because I've learned to mix is about 50-50 with Rogue Chocolate Stout and to enjoy the mixture with some high-fat grilled sausages. Hard to drink all six on its own merits, but mix in the chocolate (Rogue or Youngs Double) and you can finish them all.

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.

the aroma makes this beer. smells like homemade pumpkin pie. a nice orange color with a small slightly orange head. tastes like a fairly standard amber ale, with light clove nutmeg and pumpkin flavors. a little thin on the palate. i would almost be content just smelling the beer.

One of the worst ales I’ve ever tasted. The wife concurs. Interesting in its awfulness.
