Buffalo Bill's Brewery America's Original Pumpkin Ale

Buffalo Bill's Brewery is of Hayward, California, but says that it is brewed and bottled by Independent  Brewers United of Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon; and Berkely, California.

This beer pours a bright copper in color with almost no head.  The aroma is of pumpkin pie and nutmeg overarching a slight beer aroma.  The taste is spicy, nutmeg and other pumpkin pie spices are first and foremost, then a bit of sweet pumpkin, finally a weak beer flavor.  The pumpkin and spice flavors are good, so I wish that they were in fact stronger and deeper, because as they are they let the "beer" come through, and the beer background is of a weak adjunct lager type.  5.2% ABV.
