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.

Really quite possibly one of the better pumpkin beers around. Itís hard to find a truly good sessionable pumpkin beer. Pours a medium amber, somewhat hazy with a head on the thinner side. Aromas of pumpkin pie spice dominate the nose. The malt comes across as neutral which in this case it should as the spices truly define this beer. At no point does this beer taste sweet or cloying. The mouthfeel is relatively light and the carbonation cleans up the palate. Clean beer.

This is a solid pumpkin beer. I wouldnít say there is a lot special about it but my 6 pack was delicious. It has a slight sweetness to it and of course that lovely pumpkin taste that we all look for this time of year.

Pours a nice rich copper color with creamy, strong off-white head. Pumpkin-squash notes in the aroma with sweet bread and light spice notes. Full mouthed, moderately sweet, lightly spiced, with good balance of pumpkin and spices. Really an excellent pumpkin/fall beer; I believe this one is underrated.

Pretty delicious pumpkin beer. I was surprised to find that this beer was organic. Good stuff.

Draft. Pours a thin ivory head, with very slight lacing, over a dark amber (SRM15) body......nose is light allspice, light pumpkin, malts....taste is light toffee/caramel, slight pumpkin, spice (cinnamon, nutmeg), heavy cereal, slight squash bitterness at end....mouth feel medium, carbonation slightly high adding tingle. Both the pumpkin and spices were used with a light hand, not dominating the malts, resulting in a spicy ESB rather than liquid pumpkin pie. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

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.
