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

A few days ago I tasted Blue Moon's Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale, and found it somewhat wanting. I decided to follow it up today with the other Pumpkin Ale I had in the fridge - "America's Original Pumpkin Ale" from Buffalo Bill's Brewery. It is actually brewed by Pyramid Breweries for Buffalo Bill's. It poured a pale amber color with a tall white head. It's a well-carbonated ale. This version of a Pumpkin beer makes up for what the Blue Moon lacked. It's maltier, spicier, and has more pumpkin flavor. It's also slightly sweet. I enjoyed this one more than the Blue Moon. I got this at World Market along with a few others that I'll be sampling soon.

Oh man, I had this in the fridge since October, and this really is a tasty beer! I'm glad I saved it till I was in a descent beer mood (which is few and far between with me.)
