40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - DEC 18, 2001
Fruity aroma. Fruity malty taste, almost like an American pale ale, but with a subtle pumpkin flavor. Not overtly sweet. Had a five ounce taster of this stuff. This was the íseasonalí beer at the Irvine location in December (BJís has six permanent beers and one seasonal beer on its menu).

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 16, 2009
Draught at BJs San Jose. Gold with a light orange tint and a thick head that leaves some clingy lace. Pie spices and fleshy pumpkin in the aroma. Start a bit bland and finishes sweet with a thin body. Not much malt flavor and just a little spice in the beginning. Watery texture. Not offensive, but to bland and light for a pumpkin ale. I guess I just like the style thick and malty.

Draft. Rich amber beer with an off-white haed. Pumpkin-pie spice aroma. Pumpkin-pie spice flavor with sweet malt. Medium bodied. Sugary malt lingers with pumpkin pie spices.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - 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

AndyReynolds (912) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - OCT 18, 2010
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.

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"if youíre in the mood for pumpkin and spice, this is your beer. Not as bad as some of the pumpkin flavored pee water out there (Blue Moon Harvest Moon). This as expected, and maybe a little too spicy, but the spices are tasty and the beer is exactly what was expected. No more no less."
