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.

clear orange with little lacing under....no head. light pumpkiny aroma but a far cry from the robust spicy, pie-like aroma of many pumpkins. flavor is grainy with pumpkin, cornbread, pie crust and a hint of roasted nuts. light bodied.

Bottle from Liquor Mart. Pours a clear, filtered amber orange color with a dirty tan and slightly orange colored head. Oily pumpkin nose, slightly sugary, zero pulp, zero meat, more of a scented candle and soap character to the pumpkin. Not offensive, there’s no glaring flaws in the aroma, but it does come across as a bit simple and slightly artificial. Body is medium to light, dissolving without pause, leaving a thin, oily residue coating the mouth. Flavors aren’t very pronounced - mild, candied pumpkin, semi-sweet... a little sunflower seed and peanut oil noticed at times. Again, not terrible but certainly one-dimensional, missing the necessary heft and chewiness that a fall pumpkin beer requires, that fullness is absent.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Aroma is plastic like with some sour malt tones. Color is a bright dark gold with very good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is thin and spicy. Starting with a light body it goes down crisp. Finish is weak with a thin mouth feel and just a little spiciness and a hint of pumpkin for flavor. I don’t like it.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Poured a dark, amber color with a thick white head. The nose was spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste jumps right into a complex spiciness of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. The end was light and dry with slight cascade hops coming through. The finish was dry and spicy.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2007
A good, but not great pumpkin beer. Seems rather thin and watery compared to some of the others I have sampled. Taste and aroma is mostly spice, with just a hint of pumpkin. Poured from a 12 oz bottle.

The idea was good... The sweetness of the beer completely overwhelmed subtle flavors.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2006
GABF 2006: Light hazy golden color with a large off-white head. Light cinnamon and clove with a hint of pumpkin. Sweet malt with light spice and pumpkin notes.

Nutmeg and clove aroma; watery body with a fairly dry, tangy and astringent finish; a hint of honey, allspice, and clove in the flavor; no malt charactor; overall rather dull.

Bottle: Deep amber color with dark orange tones, thick white head. Taste is a pumkin taste with a blend of spices - nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove most prevalent. Pumpkin pie is what comes to mind with the overall feel of the beer. I really enjoyed this seasonal. Cheers!!!
