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.

ben4321 (4023) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Gilly’s, 9/21/09

Aroma: Light spice and malt nose, nutmeg, cinnamon
Appearance: Clear burnt orange, with a thin head
Flavor: Like the nose: light, simple pumpkin spice and malty flavor
Palate: It is relatively light in body and smooth, pretty easy to drink
Overall Impression: This is a decently average and light beer. I wouldn’t go out of the way to try this one, but if you are looking for a fairly simple example of the Pumpkin Ale style, this one would work pretty well. The spice is fairly mild compared to others of the style. Overall beer opens a bit as it warms so I’ll bump up my overall score a point. Decent beer.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Aroma is malty, spicy, vegetable Nutmeg and cinnamon are noted. The appearance is the most appealing thing, a dark orange, clear, thick white head. The flavor follows the aroma, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin. very watery and thin. The finish has a slight bitterness, and a sour, stale vegetable matter quality. Not great, drinkable.

TURDFERGUSON (3961) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle from Tylers Bottle Shop. Bright orange golden with a small white head. Nose is lagerish with some bits of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor is light pumpkin, some spices (but way less than the average pumpkin beer), and a sort of watery lagerish finish. Its easy to drink, but it aint all that interesting or pumpkin-y for that matter. I’m not sure whether I think that is a good or bad thing. I’ll finish it because i’m thirsty and have little else around. So I guess that says something.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Clear amber with a small head. Not a lot of aroma. What I got was some nutmeg. Flavor is pumpkin and the usual spices. Pretty watery with a bit of a metallic bite that was not to pleasant. Overall, average.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle Pours a clear golden with a bubbly off white head. The head leaves rather quickly. Makes some decent lacing. Has a good aroma of spices and pumpkin pie. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is pumpkin and bread. A touch on the harsh side. Has a watery texture and a light body. The finish is okay and the aftertaste is short and weak. Not my favorite pumpkin but okay.

Bottle, and wow i never thought i’d get to say this but thanks to Joe Ragno for sharing this one! Pours an amber body with a white lacing. Pumpkin pie, light malt and caramel with spices of nutmeg and cinnamon spice. Not bad.

heemer77 (5104) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 1, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 Deep amber body with a light khaki head. Pumpkin smells are strong with some nutmeg. This smells like nicely made fresh pumpkin bread. The taste was both sweet and spicy. Notes of pears with some cinnamon and pumpkin behind the fruit.
