On tap at the Allen, Texas location.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of cinnamon notes, as well as some nutmeg and pumpkin. The flavor is a bit different. I get the pumpkin notes once again, but the clove character also really comes through. There is also a good bit of cinnamon in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. My main complaint is that like all beers from BJ's, the beer was served way too cold and also in a frozen glass. It needed to warm up for about 10 minutes before the flavors begin to come out.

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.

Buy again.
