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.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Pours a nice amber with a small but rocky foam. Aroma is strong like pumpkin pie, squash. Taste is slightly bitter, spices are not too apparent. Interesting and different, maybe too different? I am not getting the spice here.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Crisp, bright copper coloured body with bright orange highlights and a thin, fast-dying tan head. Aroma of very potent pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, caramel and nuts. Light-bodied; Very mild pumpkin pie flavours at first with some mellow malt, some minor caramel sweetness but a very underwhelming flavour throughout. Aftertaste is bland to say the least - almost no taste aside from a minor pumpkin taste and a slight caramel sweetness, but fairly mild and cardboardie malt shows up. Overall, a pretty mild beer with some minor tastes and mellow flavours - no complexity at all. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Bon Vivant Market in Smithfield, Virginia on 14-October-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 16-October-2010.

Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle purchased in Denver, Colorado. Red-orange appearance, medium head, strong spice scent, and tastes like actual Pumpkin. I’ve had better Pumpkin beers.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Bottle pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is, well whadya know, pumpkin. Actually this is probably one of the more savory of the pumpkin beers leaning more towards cooked pumpkin/yams with baking spices. Flavor shows the same. This is definately not your pumpkin pie beer, more like one you would serve with a main course. Good stuff.

crackedmachine (471) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Pours a clear, light amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma of lager plus mild pumpkin pie spice. Flavor is predominantly light, clean malt and the pumpkin is subtle. Light and refreshing as far as pumpkin ales go. On the opposite end of the pumpkin ale spectrum from Southern Tier’s extremely rich Pumking.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Light vegetable flesh, little brown sugar sweetness balanced with nutmeg, gentle. Amber gold. This pumpkin beer wins for me in its subtlety. The light blond base allows for the spices and vegetable to stand out without being aggressive. Wonderfully balanced.

bhensonb (11070) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Nutmeg/pie spice aromas. Medium body with mildly foamy carbonation. Flavor is mostly spice, but it’s low enough that I think I can get some punkin/squish/veg. Finishes spice.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Beer poors copper with a slight haze and a head that quickly disappears. Aroma is excellent and smells just like pumpkin pie. Flavor is of pumpkin pie, but very subdued. Sweetness is low and bitterness is not present. Palate is dry, and seems like it should be heavier to support pumpkin flavor more. Overall the beer is nice with a good aroma. Would have like more sweetness and more in the flavor.

Pours a clear medium orange/gold color with a creamy looking white head. As one might expect, this beer smells a bit like pumpkin pie, with hints of nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice. This beer tastes like pumpkin spice without being overly sweet like some pumpkin ales. It is also very crisp and clean in the mouth, so you can drink it with food without ruining your meal. While not quite as good as some of the best pumpkin ales, this is pretty good and the pumpkin pie flavor isn’t overdone.
