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.

Plum color with a pink head, and a thick head at that. Great aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and allspice. Tastes like pumpkin, cream, and spice with a healthy bite. One of the best pumpkin ales Iíve had. Good, bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Label info includes a nice description and its ABV which is 7.5%. No freshness date is noticeable.
Appearance: From the aggressive pour I got a two finger tall soapy head which is light tan in color. It quickly fades leaving just a thin film covering with slightly thicker ring at the edge. Under this is a deep amber body with good clarity and nice visible carbonation.
Smell: There is pie spice and sweet malt in the nose here with just a hint of herbal hops coming through as well.
Taste/Palate: As the aroma foreshadows there is a sweet bready and almost pie crust like maltiness with a heavy hit of pumpkin pie spice. Cinnamon and nutmeg are the standouts. The pumpkin/squashy character is light but noticeable. The finish has plenty of lingering pie spice and a little herbal flavor with mild hop bitterness. I also notice a little of the 7.5% ABV here too.
Notes: Overall I liked it and think it is a solid all-around Pumpkin Ale. With its ABV and heavy spicing you may not want too many in a row however.

Just cracked this open and the aroma is all ginger snaps. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Big thanks to ughsmash. Lots of holiday spicing, warming, chocolate, toffee. There is any interesting creamy texture to the mouthful, pumpkin maybe? Very nice.

Picked up a four pack at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, WI. Pours a dark copper colored brew with a thin beige head that has some nice lacing. Aroma of mostly nutmeg and clove with a hint of caramel. Taste is medium bodied, a touch spicy with flavors or caramel, nutmeg and white pepper. Finish is semi-sweet, spiced, with a lingering nutmeg and white pepper aftertaste. Very drinkable.

Copper with a thin white head thatís gone much too soon. Aroma of nutmeg, cinnamon along with sweet and spicy malt. Taste of pumpkin pie with pumpkin, cinnamon and strong nutmeg and some noticeable alcohol to boot. Finishes up dry and very spicy. Decent.
