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

Ernest (7120) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2002
Draught. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, cookie), with notes of allspice and cinnamon. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery (almost syrupy) texture, lively carbonation. Very attractive spice aroma with a nourishing malt background, just how I like my winter warmers. Just a tad too sweet, as with most of BJs brews, but this is one of the better winter brews Iíve had this year.

PorterPounder (6898) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap at the BJís. Dark copper pour, light off-white head, light lacing. Sweet pumpkin pie spice aroma. Spice forward flavor with some cloves and pumpkin pie spice, a touch of ripening vegetables. Crisp mouthfeel. Refreshing.

onceblind (6623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2010
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.

AmEricanbrew (6607) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Clear glowing amber with a white head. Big spicy canned pumpkin pie filling aroma. Light body. Strong pumpkin pie spice flavors with little malty or yeasty richness to add body and smooth some of the sharp spicyness. Draft@BJs Plano

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 18, 2003
On tap Woodland Hills, Ca: Dark copper hue with no head. Huge spicy aroma like many holiday beers, my Aunt's pumpkin pie. Tones of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, mild hops, and roasted malt. Gutwein like spices marry well with medium malt levels. Very light bitterness on finish. No pumpkin taste on palate. Thin-bodied but still slighty chewy, weird. Unique, this style of beer. The spices are a bit too much.

Pailhead (6248) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2007
On tap: The aroma is a nice combination of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Itís a transparent amber with small off-white head. The flavor starts with cinnamon and ginger with some faint caramel in the background. The finish has an increases spice presence with nutmeg and clove. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A solid pumpkin beer.

Mora2000 (6134) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2012
On tap at the Allen, Texas location. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of cinnamon notes, as well as some nutmeg and pumpkin. The flavor is a bit different. I get the pumpkin notes once again, but the clove character also really comes through. There is also a good bit of cinnamon in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. My main complaint is that like all beers from BJís, the beer was served way too cold and also in a frozen glass. It needed to warm up for about 10 minutes before the flavors begin to come out.

riversideAK (6010) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Pumpkin pie aroma with strong cinnamon and nutmeg. Spicy for sure. Orange brown color. Sweet pumpkin pie flavor with lingering spice in the finish.

thirdeye11 (5952) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2009
(draught at Plano location) pours clear orange-yellow with spare head. Nose of pumpkin mash, cinnamon, nutmeg, and star anise. Taste is heavily spiced, cinnamon, raw pumpkin and a faint trace of lager hops. Finishes slightly creamy but also bitter like hairspray. Honest not bad just a little over spiced and pedestrian.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - NOV 6, 2007
On tap at BJs. Copper brown with a fizzy white head. Pumpkin and malt aroma. Taste of pumpkin and spice. Better than most pumpkin beers, but thatís not saying much.
