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.

Aroma= Nice notes of Nutmeg and Ginger/ aka pumpkin spice
Appearance= Deep amber/ mahagony, slightly off white head
Flavor= Really nice for a Veg/Spice beer. the profile of a nice bitter or pale ale is the base and the spice is balanced just right not to cloy the sences. Spiciness from ginger mixes well with low hop bitterness
Palate= Medium light body
Overall= This is a really nice balanced no cloying Spice beer with a great nose. I was pleasantly suprised. 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. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2007
On tap: The aroma is a nice combination of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Itís a transparent amber with small off-white head. The flavor starts with cinnamon and ginger with some faint caramel in the background. The finish has an increases spice presence with nutmeg and clove. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A solid pumpkin beer. djd07 (14366) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2008
BJ’s Willowbrook. Has a cloudy copper color with a small white frothy white head. The aroma is a strong cinnamon spice and pumpkin. Decent lacing on the glass. The tase is a spicy pumpkin and cinnamon with a bitter finish. A good spice brew from BJ’s.

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. BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2009
LIquid Pumpkin Pie! From beginning to end, this looks, smells, and taste like pie, almost unnatural. This uncanny likeness is the only drawback from this beer. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 5, 2009
Clear amber. Smells like fresh baked pumpkin pie. Flavor is sweet and has s dose if spicy hops to go with the pumpkin pie spices. Nice. kevinator (2176) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Very pleasant. Strong pumpkin and spice aroma. Almost pastry-like. Nice brown color with an orange tint. Foamy head. Average weight palate with good carbonation. Smooth character. Good blend of flavors resting on pumpkin and spice. Maybe nutmeg? I believe it would go well with dessert. DMLINAZ (332) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Very enjoyable on draft at the brewery in Riverside, California. I had mine with Fireball Whiskey and cinnamon sugar rim, so the cinnamon was really predominant. Still, there was some pumpkin here, and itís quite smooth.
