In all honestly, I was disappointed that neither provided much pumpkin flavor. If I tasted both blind, I would have thought they were spiced ales, but never would have guessed they were PUMPKIN ales.
As I mentioned in my original post, we had a split decision in our house. Latha preferred Buffalo Bill's offering, while I preferred Dogfish Head's. The three readers who expressed a preference all favored Dogfish Head.
However, based on these results, I'm declaring Pumpkin Ale Deathmatch '10 a draw. Maybe I'll sample a few more pumpkin beers next year. In the meantime, I'll stick to my favorite Pumpkins.
