UPDATED: NOV 1, 2017 Enjoyed on tap at BJ’s Brewhouse and this is the most balanced and tasty pumpkin ale ever. The pumpkin is present but not overwhelming and the perfect amount of spices. Very refreshing with a good mouthfeel. wildnobility (11) - USA - DEC 30, 2007
This is a really nice pumpkin ale. Smells like pumpkin pie, tastes spicy and slightly pumpkiny. I like it because unlike other pumpkin ales I have tried, this one tastes of pumpkin and not just spice. Pretty dark color. They always seem to run out of this one really fast at BJ’s. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2011
I tried this at the Eugene location as part of a sampler. Great underwhelming pumpkin taste. One of the better Pumpkin Ale’s I have ever had. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2005 I am not really a fan of the bottled pumpkin ales I’ve had, but this one straight from the tap was good. Nice pie/spice flavors with a creamy finish. I’d 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. enstill (10) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Mmmm. From first look you can see the orange tint of the beer.
Smelling it you can obviously smell the spices first, then the pumpkin.
It hits your tounge and the spices have a little bite to it. Really good taste immediatly following.
Great unique beer. Definatly must try this if you have not.
Upon swallowing a creamy aftertaste like pumpkin pie. Very good, sweet.

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. starkmarvelo (36) - Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
BJ's Pumpkin Ale
A- no head. Clear brown w. orange hue. Lots of bubbles, kinda watery looking.
S-Pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, malt sweetness. Smells like Pumpkin Pie.
T-Nice brown ale base with good amount of malt sweetness. This is a rare pumpkin beer that has more pumpkin flavor than cinnamon and nutmeg, which are there and blend very well. Great creamy pie-like flavor.
M- thin to medium with good amount of carbonation. Great creamy pumpkin after taste.
O- Excellent pumpkin flavor, great aftertaste. Easy drinking.
