Since its inception in 1985, America’s Original Pumpkin Ale has become a Fall tradition. Much of Buffalo Bill’s acclaim originates from this beloved autumn brew. Made with real pumpkin and spices, it has a golden amber color, and the sweet aroma of warm pumpkin pie, 6% ABV.

Appearance- Pours I hate to say it a cloudy pumpkin orange with a quickly disappearing white head. Light lacing that was there one second and gone the next. Aroma- Spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) with a fruity smell T/P – fairly light the smell is defiantly stronger than the taste. Very strong after taste to speak of, does kinda taste like you are drinking a pumpkin pie. Does have more of a spiced cider feel than a beer. Overall- Good beer for Halloween due to the novelty factor and that is not a terrible beer. Not a great beer for a hard core beer drinker or one that does not like fruit / vegetable beers, but all in all a good beer to drink every so often

Bottle from ABC on Apalachee. Sweet pumpkin spice and amber ale aroma. Tastes are sweet, watery, pumpkin, spice, bread. Not my fav.

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.

Average pumpkin ale. Light and crisp not a ton of flavor but enjoyable non the less. Worth a try but dont expect alot ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

We did a blind taste test between this beer and other pumpkin ales to determine which one is the best pumpkin ale for the season. The beers were Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Shock Top Pumpkin Wheat, Buffalo Bill’s America’s Original Pumpkin Ale, Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and New Belgium Pumpkick.

Out of bottle flat, sweet, just a very mediocre pumpkin ale. Last years I thought was better. Just not a lot a going on here.

Poured from a bottle. Cloudy orange color, small short lived carbonated head. Slight hops and pumpkin smell. Tastes of fruit, pumpkin and slight butterscotch.

Bottle. It’s an unclear, golden beer with a small, dense, off white head. Pale malts, generic fruityness and a faint spiced hint in the aroma. The flavor is lightly spiced, but mostly fruity and malty. Medium body, low but pleasant carbonation level. Quite decent, easy drinkable. 130906

Bottle. Pours deep golden with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruitiness , spices and malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity with some spices, brown sugar, pumpkin and malt. Medium body, average carbonation.

Decent Aroma. Dark amber color. Very watery palate. Does not really have a strong pumpkin flavor nor is it very spicy. Just a sweet, malty beer. Not really a top pumpkin ale in my opinion.
