Buffalo Bill's Brewery: America's Original Pumpkin Ale

Out of Hayward, Califorinia, Buffalo Bill's Brewery is a small production with about 6 or 7 different beers. Their seasonal offering for fall is the America's Original Pumpkin Ale

This beer is a pumpkin ale I feel that is approachable by anyone. If you're new to "weird" beers and want to try your first pumpkin ale, this ain't a bad place to start.

That being said, that's not necessarily a good thing. This pumpkin ale has the right things going for it, they just all fall flat. The pumpkin flavoring is apparent, but not strong enough to give the right aroma and taste you really want out of a beer like this. It has a hair of spice and maltiness on the front end and finishes nicely, it just never impresses on any level. This is a beer that could definitely benefit from its ingredediants getting kicked up a notch.

$7 for a sixer isn't breaking the bank, but the quality is lackluster

5 Flavor

It falls into the bland category unfortunately. It has spice and
pumpkin in there, just not up to par with others.

8 Drinkability

Very approachable and a good starting point for noobs to
pumpkin ales.

6 Overall

More passion behind it is needed to make this an epic beer.
