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!
