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.

The label on this is pretty generic, and that made me wonder a little. Aroma is sweet, spicy, and grassy. Amber pour with a light head. Mellow mouthfeel. The taste is not bad, and is similar to an upmarket lager - but the pumpkin pie flavors are lacking. It is not bad, but it is oversold. Today seems to be a day for slightly disappointing pumpkin brews.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
12 oz bottle. Deep amber-orange beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly spicy with a bit of allspice, clove and cardamon over a soft caramelly sweetness. A munich malt backbone, but it isn’t overly sweet. Soft palate and although it’s a bit light on flavour, it’s got great balance. A lingering gingery flavour on the back that brightens it up significantly. Pretty nice.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Appearance: Sports an amber body with a small, though lasting, fizzy, white head. Appropriate spiderweb lacing on the way down. Smell: Sweet, honeyish aroma with light notes of toast and pumpkin. Taste: Sweet, toasty maltiness with flavors of honey and light caramel. Pumpkin and spice character remains light. Spicy hops give off only a lighter bitterness. Finishes crisp and drying with a lingering toastiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-high, somewhat tingly carbonation. Drinkability: A decent, rather drinkable pumpkin ale with a respectably low ABV.

JFGrind (1844) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Curious find in a South Jersey liquor store, not sure how a Utah pumpkin beer made its way to Marlton, NJ. However, had to try it, Punk’n is lean on malt, has a dash of allspice and pumpkin flavors. Fizzy beer, curious what the ABV is.

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Smells terrific, like carrot cake or pumpkin roll. Medium to full-bodied and almost chewy with tingly carbonation. The flavor leans barely on the sweet side of balance and is nicely spiced. Toffee stands out. Finishes crisp and then lightly sweet. One of the top three pumpkin ales I’ve ever tried. I understand many people don’t like pumpkin ales, but I gotta go way against the grain on this one. Big thanks to Douglas88 for floating this one my way!

Clear copper pour. Thin tan head and a little spotty lace. Nutmeg and cinnamon on the nose. Pumpkin spice flavor.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Bottle courtesy of sloth. Pours copper with a thin white head. Smells earthy. Tastes of light pumpkin and spice. Decent.

Drake (8536) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 1, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville. Auburn colored pour with a big head, good lacing and great retention. Nice looking beer. Straightforward pumpkin spice and pumpkin aroma. Taste is grain, pumpkin and light spice. Medium bodied. I rather like this one.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours chill hazy coppery with 1-finger creamy off-white head. Nose is pumpkin and pumpkin spice, caramel malt. Rich, fairly complex palate, with tastes of pumpkin and pie spice, malt, and a nice balance.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - SEP 29, 2008
12 oz bottle from Douglas88! Thanks! Nose of pumpkin and spices (cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon) lightly hazy copper with a medium beige head; flavor has pumpkin, spiciness, and a little background bitterness. Actually a nice light pumpkin ale; I could drink this all the Thanksgiving weekend, enjoy it, and not get loaded!
