Americas Original Pumpkin Ale - Review

This review is one of many Pumpkin Beer and Oktoberfest Reviews.

Beer Reviewed:
Americas Original Pumpkin Ale by Buffalo Bill's Brewery

The first beer I am going to review is Buffalo Bill's Pumkin Ale. I picked this one first because despite the name of Original, I had tried Buffalo Bills' Pumkin Ale and so I was completely new to it. The first thing I noticed as poping the bottle cap was a missing pop. No Prssure! This usualy means a flat beer and it was. I was sadly disapointed beacuse I could tell just by looking at it I was going to be disapointed. The beer was just as it looks flat, flat, and more flat. Not sure if I got a bad batch or this is how the pumpkin ale usualy runs but I like a good head on my beer so it's already out for me as a favorite.

The color of The Original Pumpkin Ale was a brilliant bright orange. This did impress me because as a home brewer myself I know how hard it is to change a beers color to match its flavor. This beer certainly looks like a pumpkin and for that I give it a plus point.

The smell had a distinctive spicy aroma reminding me of a pumpkin pie. The spicy smell however is followed by a undertone of the fruity banana smell of the yeast. not really a fan of the yeasty smell but I still give it a point for it's inital pumpkin punch.

Now for taste! While this beer is fairly light it has a heavy taste which is good. I like thickness whens it comes a pumpkin ale. There is a strong flavor of spice and pumpkin and literately no hop. Once again all good things in a pumpkin brew. While I really did like the taste of Americas Original Pumpkin Ale I can't help but be disappointed in the overall finish due to it's earlier mentioned flatness.

Overall I going to give Buffalo Bill's Americas Original Pumpkin Ale 3 out of 5 stars. If they could get some carbonation going I probably raise that to four stars. Over all its Good but no where close to great!

Oktoberfest & Pumpkin Beer Reviews

I'm going to try something a little bit different on this blog. By different I mean actually blogging.  We are coming into my favorite season of the year (harvest), and that means something else I love Great Seasonal Ales! Every year starting late Summer and into early Autumn breweries start releasing there seasonal brew.  This means Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ales followed by winter time specials!  I always look forward to the fall for things like apple and pumpkin picking, apple cider, fresh garden veggies,tricker treating, costume parties, my birthday, but mainly the beer.

It's about that time of year so I headed to the package store and my adventure began. This Year I was absolutely bombarded by pumpkin beers and barely had time to skim the Oktoberfest offerings. I know what your thinking, "too much good beer to choose from, Oh No!" I thought the same thing. Luckily for me they sell singles for an outrageous price I just happened to be willing to pay. I loaded up on as many pumpkin ales as I could find, a few Octobers and headed home.

So since I'm going to  drinking all these beers anyway I might as well give them some reviews. Hopefully they will help you to choose a Pumpkin beer you will enjoy. At the very least I'll have these handy for next years trip!

I will make a list of links to my reviews below and ad the beers as I review them.

Local SEO Part 4 - Make A Plan

      4.  Make A Plan

Based on what you previously found, it’s time to build a plan for your local campaign. Building local listings consists of creating an account and adding contact info. You should spend some quality time developing content for these profiles. Often times users will make buying decision based solely on local listing and never even visit the company website. This is why a quality brand message is important. Start with a Tag Line and short description that’s one to two sentences long. Then you should development a much more in-depth, long description. All of the above should incorporate the following in some way :

Who your company is and what you represent.
Why is your business unique, special and/or better than the competition.
What are the products and/or service that you sell?

Local SEO Guide - Part 3

3. Analyze Your Market

Visit the top ten ranked websites and various profiles, then browse around a bit. What kinds of info and text do they have? What other internal pages do they link to? Are they running specials, sales, and promotions? You’re not looking to copy anyone, you are just getting an idea of what other business' that are high ranking are doing. Are there any consistencies across the top ranking pages? Is there anything you saw you really liked? Is there anything you really didn’t like? Read the reviews good and bad. What are the fans saying? What are the critics saying? Are there any areas you excel in which your competition is weak? Are you able to spot any potential weakness of your business that you can address before you get a bad review?

2. Research Your Local Market

      Once you have your Target Local Keyword, you can begin doing some research. I recommend opening up all three major search engines: Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Then sign out of any associated accounts that may alter your results (Gmail, Ymail, Hotmail, etc.). Search your Target Local Keyword in all of the engines and begin examining the results. Who ranks #1, #2, and #3? I recommend setting up an excel spreadsheet for each engine and recording the top 10 for your TLK.  Record all of the local and top organic results up to 10 total spots. Record the business name, linked URL, total number of reviews, reviews of each star level, and business address information.

Local SEO Guide: Part1

1. Find Target Keywords

Keywords are important, very important. Starting with keywords is a solid base to build any SEO campaign. The goal is to find the most relevant words for your business that also have the highest local monthly search volume. There are plenty of other great articles on the net about keyword selection so I won’t go too deeply into the process. Local keyword selection consists of adding Geographic Specific Keywords (GSK) to your Target Keyword (TK).

GSK + TK = TLK (Target Local Keyword)
You may also want to find variations using state, zip code, and neighborhoods in addition to alternating the Target Keywords and GSK in location.
