Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale (Notes) (2011)

Buffalo Bill’s Pumpkin Ale comes in at 5.2% ABV.

I had this beer at one of my friend’s houses. I poured a 12 oz bottle into a tall glass.

It poured into the glass an orange/amber with some initial, but quickly disappearing head. It smelled like the traditional pumpkin pie spices, and had a faint pumpkin aroma. The smell of the spices had an almost cheap quality to them. The taste was not as bad, but didn’t do a whole lot for me. It was borderline weak, and had more of a tart cidery taste than a rich pumpkin ale taste. This is one of the original widely distributed pumpkin ales in the US craft beer market, and so something that I wished was better. A lot of folks speak positively about this beer. That’s cool, but it’s not for me.
