A spicy finish balances the sweet start of this seasonal favorite. Orange in color with the delicious taste and aroma of pumpkin pie!

Pours out a transparent dark orange, fluffy khaki head with good lacing. Oh, that smell! Perhaps the best smelling pumpkin ale I ever smelt. Creamy pumpkin pie pilling, a hint of nutmeg and cinnamon. Taste is found lacking though. Still good, just lighter bodied than I demand, crisp and clean. Not as creamy as the smell would hint at. Good, not great.

5oz taster. Pours clear orange with minimal head. Lovely aroma of pumpkin & nutmeg but the taste is much more subtle. Exceptionally watery mouthfeel. Average-to-below-average pumpkin ale.

[Tap] Pours a bright orange color with a small amount of white head. Nose is of clove, ginger and nutmeg. Sweet and malty in taste. Caramel and some toffee notes throughout. Typical pumpkin pie spices with a heavy emphasis on ginger. The body is a bit thin, but really not too bad. High carbonation level and easy to drink. It was good to try.

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.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Tap at BJs Sugar Land. 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
