Clear amber color. White head lasts 5 minutes. Dirty water aroma. Strong bite. The flavor starts off creamy and smooth tasting like pumpkin pie with whipped cream on top. As you get halfway through the pint though the flavor gets more rough and spicy. Overall its a very flavorfull and tasty desert-like beer.

The nose on this thing is out of this world. There is a wafting, pillowy scent of cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste is dusted with sugar and flaky hops. The pumpkin here is pronounced without feeling like youíre seed deep in the stuff. Good dichotomy going on. This seasonal ale feels great when stewing in that frothy maw of yours. Awesome after-meal treat.

Really great pumpkin taste in this. The pumpkin is not just some squash dropped in the fermented, but the main focus of the beer. The bartender swore it was good w/ whipped cream and even poured us one w/ some when we didnít believe her. (well, thatís a first). Great choice and amount of spices to go w/ that great pumpkin taste. Not saying much, but best pumpkin beer I have had.

Nice orange/tan color with almost no head (apparently like all BJs beers, at least in the Tustin, CA restaurant). Pumpkin spice in the aroma and in the taste with strong emphasis on cinnamon. Medium bodied with a really nice balance of pumpkin pie spice and malt, not too much or too little. Whatever hops might have been in there were kept in the background. Very well made and enjoyable pumpkin ale.

Reddish amber with decent head. Smells of nutmeg, cinnamon....spices. Tastes like nutmeg, cinnamon...spices, maybe some brown sugar and sweet malts. A touch thin, but quite tasty and easy to drink.

Smells like nutmeg and cinnamon and brown sugar. Unfortunately it has the signature butter flavor that I get with many pumpkins but itís actually a pretty good pumpkin ale

Draft. Aroma is strong with pumpkin pie spices and sweet malts. On the palate it is a little over carbonated for the style. Flavor is a little watered down and maybe too strong with the spices.

Iím not a fan of spiced or pumpkin beers, but we were there and we had to give it a try. Often you get a pumpkin beer that is just way way way overspiced and or not aged long enough (like they pump them out the first day of october). Mildly malty and low-hopping make this a very drinkable spice beer. I somehow though managed to find that the aftertaste is reminiscent of celery seed.

Pumpkin-orange color with minimal off-white head. Aroma is mild earthy and vegetal, spicy and bready. Flavor is light malt, balanced bitterness undertones of pie spice. Finish is smooth and biscuity with a light creamy texture. This is drinkable but not memorable.
