Tallahassee, Fl. - on tap at the BJ’s. 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. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
On tap at the Westwood Location. Sent in a picture to be uploaded. Pours with a small, off-white head that fades and a clear very deep copper body. Decent lacing. Aroma of allspice, cinnamon, and wheat. Overall pretty weak aroma. Taste is cinnamon, allspice, brown sugar and sort of a lager crispness/yeast profile. Light astringency from the spice. Mouthfeel is water like and thin-ish. Ernest (7695) - 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 I’ve had this year. BuckeyeBoy (7669) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2010
On tap South side (Seattle) Pours out a amber topped with a small of white head. Aroma was of spice, pumpkin, and nutmeg. Tast was more of the pumpkin and spice.

4-5 oz pour on draft at BJ’s (Gainesville, VA location) with a Mustang Sally yelling DCLawyer. A pumpkin ale on tap in April, who would have thought? Clear dark amber with beige head. Aromas of pumpkin spices, herbs, cinnamon. Tastes of pumpkin spices, herbs, cinnamon, malt, caramel. Medium-light body with a dry finish. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 16, 2007
On tap at the Brea location on 12/3/06: Pours a transparent copper bronze with a wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of sweet cinnamony nutmeg and caramel malt. Body starts with a light sugary caramel maltiness and a pumpkin spice flavor that reminds me of those windmill cookies. Nicely-balanced and enjoyable brew with good use of the pumpkin and spice flavors. AmEricanbrew (6878) - 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. [email protected]
On tap at the Fort Collins location. Clear dark orange appearance with a lingering beige head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, caramel malt, toffee and allspice. Similar flavor, light to medium body with a spiced finish. Solid pumpkin beer overall. BBB63 (6557) - 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.
