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. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2006
Draught at the Boulder brewery.<P>
Beer is medium-amber colored with a thick, large, creamy, beige, mostly diminishing head.<P>
Not really enough pumpkin character to satisfy mu pumpkin-beer craving. The aroma was malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, caramel; Hoppy with moderate note of resin/pine, light note of lemon zest; Yeasty with a light note of dough; Miscellaneous notes included a light-to-moderate cinnamon and a light note of pumpkin pie filling.<P>
The flavor was moderately sweet, lightly bitter, moderately acidic/sour with a long, lightly acidic, lightly bittersweet finish. Slightly dull and vegetal in the finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Pretty decent for a BJS brew a pretty balanced between pumpkin and spicea that have a nice after taste. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Good because the pumpkin and spices were not totally overdone as with most of these types of beers. timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JAN 5, 2009
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.

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 don’t taste much pumkin. These beers usually do a pretty good job of resembling a pumkin pie, this one is all spice. Not bad. AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, 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. pintsize (1041) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2007

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. Bricktop86 (885) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 17, 2014
