Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale ....

This evening I will have the Pumpkin Ale, Brewed with Real Pumpkin and Natural Spice Flavor, from Buffalo Bill's Brewery.  5.2% ABV is listed on the twelve ounce bottle.

Pumpkin Ale poured with a thin, not quite tan colored head.  Beer color is a lighter orange-ish amber.  Although not overpowering, the aroma is heavy on the spice.  It is very reminiscent of pumpkin pie.  The taste is malty and bready/grainy, then some of the pumpkin and spice comes in.  Effervescent mouth feel.  Mild "beer" aftertaste.  Overall, I would describe this beer as similar to a simple lager, with some light pumpkin and spice added into the mix.  I think it could use a little more pumpkin and spice.
