12 oz bottle served in a snifter.
Pours clear, deep red-copper with a modest and weak tan head.
More spicy in the flavor and feel than in the nose, particular the cinnamon component. Perhaps due to a richer malt base, even with rather bold spicing this pumpkin is not over-spiced. Those not liking cinnamon much will disagree; this has enough cinnamon to, I think, add a slight burn to the feel.

Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice hits you during the pour. Taste is nutmeg and pumpkin. Nutmeg and cinnamon top the pumpkin flavor. An ok beer. Don’t even notice the 7.5 % Alc. Dry spicy aftertaste.

12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a lasting disc of cream on top. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, caramel and hints of cherry cola. Taste is nearly all cinnamon up front, with cherry cola and then some occasional nice flashes of earthy caramelized pumpkin flesh. Some leafy hop almost makes an appearance as well. Nice little touch of roast on the finish. Medium body has low-average carbonation and is pretty well balanced. Another over-spiced pumpkin, but not as much as some.

Bottle. Again, Love pumpkin ales, but they seem to taste very similar. This one does too. Deep orange color, decent head. Aroma is spicy. Taste is spicy

If I were blindfolded and this beer was place under my nose, I’d swear I was smelling PUMPKIN PIE! Marvelous! Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon amber with a mostly diminishing foamy tan head and spotty lacing. The taste, like the nose, is delightful! Pumpkin, all the appropriate spices, even the whipped creamed topping and a well browned crust are present. None of the flavor elements overpowers their neighbors. Very well balanced. Overall, this is an exceptionally well crafted beer and true winner!

This one poured a darker orange with an off white head. Aroma of cinnamon l, nutmeg, toast and caramel. Decent pumpkin pie flavors, but then drops off in the finish.

Draught > Enos. I love this beer. In fact at times I crave this beer. It just has more pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon flavors than other pumpkin beers. It also has more body than other pumpkin beers that can be pretty thin sometimes. Only thing I'd change would be better head retention.

Very spicy with light pumpkin flavors. Tons of cinnamon, and light clove, nutmeg, and ginger. Has a slight cola taste. One of the bests pumpkin beers I've had.
