COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harvest the flavors of fall with a bottle opener and a stroll down the craft-brewed beer aisle. Four+ Punk’n Ale is the pick of the crop with notes of roasted pumpkin and seasonal spices. Savory. Crisp. The sweetness is in the celebration, not on the palate.

Banks to Amyliz4 for picking this bottle up. Pours light copper win a thin off white head. Plenty of visible carbonation. A bit if lacing. Smell is really plain. Hint of spice and very mild pumpkin. A bit squashy and really light cinnamon. A bit vegetal. Feel is light and undercarbonated. Quite plain. Cool label and some nice lacing, but that’s about all I can say in favor of this beer.

12oz bottle courtesy of douglas88. Pours clear copper with tan head. The aroma is sweet with malts and peppered with winter spices, pumpkin and crystal malts. The taste starts off both sweet and spicy with sweet malts mixing with winter spices like cinnamon. Toward midway a faint pulse of grainy malts helps usher in modest pumpkin notes as this thing heads off into oblivion.

Tap at Brouwers. Thick soft white foam on dark amber. Spicy pumpkin pie scent. Straight forward tasty pumpkin beer. Just a hint of metallic on the edge.

Not my favorite Pumpkin beer-- needs pumpkin dialed up. Not as good as Blue Moon Pumpkin that I enjoyed in the past.

Pervasive pumpkin pie spices on the nose. Smooth, well rounded sweet caramel backbone with big pumpkin character. Nutmeg, cinnamon, and light clove in perfect balance. Some sweetness attributed to honey. A great example of the haggis of beers.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2010
bottle at azwine 9/10/10. clear orange brown with a quickly dissipating white head. the nose is thankfully light on the spice... notes of bread, caramel and some nutty pumpkin business. well balanced flavor... not sweet as i anticipated from the aroma and not overly spiced. dry, crisp, light on the palate and terribly quaffable. 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

THOUGHTS: Sort of like home-made pumpkin pie. Not too sweet. Very pumpkin like. Not over-spiced. A little different than a lot of the other pumpkin beers. The others are either very sweet or all about the spices and not about the pumpkin. With the low ABV you can knock back a few. It even tasted good drank straight from the bottle, which I tried the night before I sat down with a glass to rate it. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium orange with and average, off-white head that mostly diminished and left barely fair lacing. The aroma had light to moderate caramel; hints of hops; pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet, fairly sour, slightly bitter and slightly acidic with a slightly longer than average duration. There was pumpkin, pumkpin pie spices, a little malt, a little caramel and hints of hops. The light to medium body was a bit watery and then fairly dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a slightly dry and almost chalky finish.

aroma of cinnamon/nutmeg type spiciness,pumpkin and sweet malts rather nice..also nice looking orange brown clear liquid pure white head with lacing..taste follows the nose very reminiscent of a subtle pumpkin pie flavor..palate and aftertaste are extensions of the flavor pleasantly tingly and sweetly spicy I got to say this is my first pumpkin style ale but i liked it,could use a bit stronger flavor and abv but not bad at all

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 3, 2010
On draught at Albuquerque’s Nob Hill Bar & Grille. Fading white head with big pumpkin spice aroma. Medium body and full mouthfeel with solid maltiness working to balance the pumpkin flavors. A bit forceful but not obnoxious.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 A nice rosy brown colour with a pure White head. A stale spicy nose. A very thick mouthfeel with a sweet and spicy flavour. It has lemonady shandy-like twist and some flat staleness. It has it’s charms but I’ve seen better. Re-rate (2001 batch): Tres Orange. Sweet and spicy nose. Fruity and pulpy it fortunately skips the metallic flavour I find in the spice of many pumpkin beers. Chewy. (+.3 Overall)
