On tap at BJs in Vacaville, CA. Poured a dark bronze color and smelled of cloves and brown sugar. Tasted like pumpkin pie. Winter spices made this sweet beer a winner in my book.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 At the Brea location on tap...not sure it was called anything but Pumpkin but hey...orange amber...small head. Aroma of pumpkin spices...flavors are pretty balanced with sweetness and pumpkin, cinammon and spice. Tasty. Re-Rate - Dec 2, 2013 at Aurora, COLORADO location. Cinnamon orange with small head & lace. Aroma of spicy pumpkin pie. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of righ malt, pumpkin spice pie. Overall very smooth, flavorful and tasty without too much spice.

On tap at BJís in Houston (Brewed by St Arnolds). Pours amber with a white, short lived, foamy head and soda like carbonation. Aroma is of pumpkin, spices and caramel malt. Full, smooth body. Taste is similar to aroma. Short, smooth finish. Good brew.

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: NOV 3, 2005 I am not really a fan of the bottled pumpkin ales Iíve had, but this one straight from the tap was good. Nice pie/spice flavors with a creamy finish. Iíd like to get a growler this year to really finish off Thanksgiving just right. 11/05 just reaquainted myself with this Fall season treat. Closing my eyes and breathing in the aroma was just like getting a whiff of fresh baked pie with vanilla ice cream. Really great stuff.

Orange in color, this seasonal pumpkin ale has been done better by other breweries. Pumpkin is detectable.
