I discovered a new brew, Pumpkin Ale from Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in California. Yes, the fall season is closing down for the winter months, but I’m hanging on until last call.

This particular beer caught my interest from across the store with its inviting fall packaging. Marketing got the best of me. I had to pick it up and take it home or back to the office.

The Ale is a microbrew consisting of baked and roasted pumpkin seeds. The combination of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg add a very unique flavor that ties the whole beer together. Some say it taste like pumpkin pie, I on the other hand had a delightful cider experience.
