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

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very tasty initally, but kind of faded for me and hit a plateau. Definitely smells like pumpkin pie. Tastes of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. It had a little metallic taste about half way through. Little to no lacing. I liked Saranac’s much better. This is definitely better than Blue Moon’s Pumpkin Ale though.

this is one of my favorite pumpkin ales. With a smooth, sweet taste and spicy but soft smell, I can’t get enough.

Not much flavor for a pumpkin ale. A bit flat compared to other brands. No smell of pumpkin either. Drinkable but not as good as other brands on the market with pumpkin. I would not try it again.

Color is amber, orange with the smell of Pumpkin spice, just as advertized. You can defiantly taste the pumpkin spice, and maybe a bit of ginger. Not an overpowering flavor, I didn’t mind it.

Bottle to Lager glass, pours a brownish color. The head is almost non existent after maybe 2 minutes. Has a pretty good smell of pumpkin. The taste is also of pumpkin but is somewhat odd. Not very carbonated at all. It was a decent beer overall, I probably won’t buy it again however.

Nice for a once a year novelty. I thought that the taste doesn't back up the aroma. And, I was looking for better/more mouth feel.
