On tap from BJís in Huntington Beach. Reddish amber color in the glass with a strong pumpkin aroma. Taste is strong pumpkin with good mix of spice. Smooth finish. I definitely enjoyed it. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - DEC 23, 2007
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. rcasta (861) - EL SALVADOR - NOV 4, 2010

11/11/08 On draft at the brewpub Tukwila, Wa. Aroma is low slightly sour sweet pumpkin spice forward with light caramel. Appearance is slightly hazy copper with a very low white head. Flavor is sweet/sour spice and citrus forward, with an orangelike background. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture and moderate acidic tang. Overall, easy drinking and simple.

On tap at BJs in Vacaville, CA. Poured a dark bronze color and smelled of cloves and brown sugar. Tasted like pumpkin pie. Winter spices made this sweet beer a winner in my book. Nik925 (795) - USA - OCT 29, 2010
Really great pumpkin taste in this. The pumpkin is not just some squash dropped in the fermented, but the main focus of the beer. The bartender swore it was good w/ whipped cream and even poured us one w/ some when we didnít believe her. (well, thatís a first). Great choice and amount of spices to go w/ that great pumpkin taste. Not saying much, but best pumpkin beer I have had. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Drank as BJís Pumpkin Ale -- nice session seasonal brew. Mild malty nose with pumpkin pie spices coming off an orange pour with an adequate head. Taste is lighter than most pumpkin beers with pumpkin pie spices and clean finish. Pumpkin Ale is nothing special but a nice Autumn change with the seasons.

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. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Orange in color, this seasonal pumpkin ale has been done better by other breweries. Pumpkin is detectable.
