Americas Original Pumpkin Ale by Buffalo Bill's Brewery
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!
