Itís funny how when I see it in the stores, it just starts to feel like autumn and when I crack it open, it immediately makes it autumn and takes me back to my college days. I hope my wife doesnít read this review but you know how something just evokes a thousand memories - of crossing the San Mateo bridge in my old top down Jeep to see my girlfriend at CSU Hayward (oh, sorry - CSU East Bay now). I can taste the salt air from the marshes and then picking up at her place behind the school, nestled in woods like itís Truckee or something. While Hayward was all 1960ís strip mall falling apart, there was that one cozy place - Buffalo Billís - great fresh beer of every kind - stout, pale ale but pumpkin was always worth waiting for. It was like if we could down a few more, we could hold off winter - and then of course, we moved on - she got a great job offer back East and then Germany - she still emails me asking if I still go to Buffalo Billís - I do but donít hate me, I never take the wife, I just go with my buddies and pumpkin ale takes me back - they got a great clean tasting and unique flavor down - Iíve tried others but itís no pumpkin ale from Buffalo Billís.

12oz bottle @ Knife and Fork (Atlantic City) for 4 year anniversary. I had everything else on the menu before so don't judge!.... Yea that means you Dave! Pours a clear burnt orange color with very minimal fizzy off white head. Aroma of toasted malts and lots of pumpkin pie spices. Taste is slightly yeasty, sour citrus, grain, and pumpkin pie spice.

Got a 6-pack of this one at Walgreens in Vegas. Pours a hazy golden-amber colour with a fizzy warm cap that disappears quickly and leaves not much lace. Smells like pumpkin purťe at first, but then the spices come out (cinnamon, nutmeg). Same for taste with just a little sourness, and less spices. Seems like a decent brew for those who prefer more pumpkin than spices.

8/26/2010. From bottle. Pumpkin, malt and spice aromas. A little sticky sweet. Sweet flavors from the pumpkin, but somewhat muted. Meh...

My favorite pumpkin ale. I was surprised to see such a low rating from everyone, since I really enjoyed this beer.

A new pumpkin Iíve never seen. Jazzy orange brown with no real head or lace. Aroma is vegetal with hints of spice, taste follows, more pumpkin than pie. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a clear orange color with a pretty much nonexistent head. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and little bit of sweetness. Taste is faint pumpkin and spice. If the taste was more intense this would be outstanding. Texture is watery which subtracts from overall appeal.

Not bad! No head, but a nice seasonal cloudy orange hue. Slightly hoppy, an understated pumpkin flavor, but good on an October evening.
