I’ve had a few pumpkin ales and this is the best - sublime balance, gorgeous sweet malts, lively spicing. It is the Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale brewed under contract, but they don’t call it that because Canadian’s don’t know who Bill Owens is. I find it better than the same beer made by Portland Brewing.

mcberko (13863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
341mL bottle, pours a clear copper orange with a medium beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, nutmeg and cinnamon – pretty standard pumpkin ale aroma. Flavour of pumpkin puree, and only a mild presence of nutmeg and cinnamon, finishes pretty soft , on the pumpkin puree notes. Easy-drinking, standard, but well-made pumpkin ale.
