Good because the pumpkin and spices were not totally overdone as with most of these types of beers.

Tasted on tap at DTM’s Bday. I was surprised by this one. Nice and smooth, this brew had notes of brown sugar, cloves and nutmeg. Not overpowering and very balanced beer.

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.

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.

Had on tap at the restaurant. Pours deep amber with a real nice creamy head on top. Aroma has lots of cinnamon and spice but I really donít taste much pumkin. These beers usually do a pretty good job of resembling a pumkin pie, this one is all spice. Not bad.

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.

Very spicy aroma - lots of cinammon and no pumpkin smell at all really. Tastes of watery pumpkin. Highly carbonated. Clear amber color. Another unimpressive brew - but damn, they have great pizza!

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.

Had this for desert tonight with Michael, Joey, and Allison. Nose of pumkin pie. The brew is sparkling garnet. The thin wispy head is fully diminishing with no lace. The flavor "just blossoms in your mouth" according to my guest rater. The beer is spicy throughout. The middle is kinda sweet with no acidity. The finish is crisp. The medium fizzy body is very greamy. The finish feels a tad sticky.
