COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harvest the flavors of fall with a bottle opener and a stroll down the craft-brewed beer aisle. Four+ Punkín 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.

This is a spicy and sweet tasting brew. Little lacing and not much visual after the head submits quickly. Ok taste and feel but not the best pumpkin beer Iíve ever had.

A run of the mill pumpkin beer. Aroma was pumpkin spice with a heavy dose of caramel malt. A slight burnt toast aroma was in there as well. Pour was a nice enough light brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was alright. There was roasted pumpkin and spices in the beginning but mid swallow the sweet roasted caramel malt drowned out the spices. The mouth is left wet and bitter after the swallow. Decent carbonation.

Best to have before February 2, 2013. Hey, itís what the bottle says! Anyway, I like it, but itís mediocre to me. Pumpkin beers are hard for me to like a lot so I have that going for me. I just want a pumpkin beer thatís like a pumpkin pie more than an ale or lager with pumpkin in it. Thereís definitely a nice, pumpkin sweetness in this, but I want it to overwhelm me without being cloying or too much. This isnít cloying, this isnít too much, this isnít overwhelming me with pumpkin pie-ness.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with some effervescence and a sporadic wispy head. Aroma is mild and malty with pumpkin spice notes, Nice flavor with a savory rich body and a nice spicy bitter finish. Nice take on the style accentuating a more savory, spicy bitter character than an over the top sweetness.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5973) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi sweet with very faint caramel and very faint vague spices. The flavor was semi sweet bread and faint dry spice and a hint of caramel. Short tangy, caramel and spice finish. Medium body. Eh.

TheRealMGD (552) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Bottle from World Beers. Clear, copper pour with a minimal, brief white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is lightly spicy, but mostly roasted pumpkin and medium-roast malt. Medium-light body and carbonation. Pumpkin, nutmeg, almonds, pine hops and some caramel. On the less spicy side of the pumpkin beers, which I appreciate, but Iím still waiting for someone to do a pumpkin beer without spices (Snipes did a roasted pumpkin sour a while back, but it was a one-off) - more of a savory and umami ale.

Nice spicy aroma, absolutley no head whatsoever and a coppery color. Nice spicy bitterness with a moderate pumpkin spice finish. Fall is here.

BeerKurve (520) - - SEP 8, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Dark hazy orange with sparse lacing. Aroma of pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and yeasts; While the flavor is a mixture of spices, pumpkin, nuts, cinnamon and yeasts. Body is light with some mild carbonation with a spicy zing. Overall, itís an mediocre fall sipper, and it lacks the maltiness I would expect from this style. Without the malts, the other flavors are pretty much on their own

12 oz. bottle pours a clear copper/orange with an off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is primarily pumpkin with noticeable cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Taste is slightly sweet but somehow flat. Light to medium body.. This would be boring if it werenít for the pumpkin taste and color. Every other Uinta brew Iíve tried has been quite enjoyable.
