In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into the Oringal Pumpkin Ale from Buffalo Bill’s Brewery. Buffalo Bill’s is one of the oldest brewpub in the United States. It opened in 1983. It was opened right after the laws changed. Bill Owens, who is the founder and owner, wanted to serve homemade food with some great beers. In 1994, Bill Owens sold the brewery to Geoff Harries. Geoff worked with Bill in 1987 as the orinigal brewmaster. Geoff grew the brewerey into 40 states in the United States. This is information was pulled from their website (www.buffalobillsbrewery.com). Let us get into this pumpkin ale.
It has a slightly cloudy amber color with a white head at first. The smell has a light to slight cinnamon notes. The taste of this medium body beer has a cinnamon notes with a crisp cinnamon finish. It is pretty drinkable beer.
Here is a descriation from their website (www.buffalobillsbrewery.com):

In closing, here is the pumpkin beer that started this mass trend right now. Every fall, we have a flood of Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beers hit the market. It is alwasy nice to go back and try the beer that started that trend. I had this about four or five years ago and loved it. I wanted to retry it. I still love this beer. I have to say it is better than most pumpkin ales on the market now. There are some really bad pumpkin ales on the market. It is so disappointed us beer drinkers have not send that message that these beers are not good. I mean we vote with our wallet or money. It is a nice message not to buy them. This one is good and you need to try or retry it. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
