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.

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.

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.

Smells great. Taste is not as interesting. Good beer, but finishing is harder then the first few sips.

Very pleasant. Strong pumpkin and spice aroma. Almost pastry-like. Nice brown color with an orange tint. Foamy head. Average weight palate with good carbonation. Smooth character. Good blend of flavors resting on pumpkin and spice. Maybe nutmeg? I believe it would go well with dessert.

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

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.
