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.

Pours clear orange with white head, aroma has notes of vegetal pumpkin, some spice, toffee, and some sweet molasses notes as well. Itís a bit too much pumpkin to where its almost DMS like. Taste is more of the DMS cooked corn and cabbage, with some slight pumpkin, spice, and some graham crust, finishing fairly sweet with molasses in there as well. Taste picks up the aroma, but the overly vegetal pumpkin detracts.

marcus (8696) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 14, 2011
Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange copper with a modest beige head and a, you guessed it, pumpkin aroma. There is a strange vegetable flavor that does resemble pumpkin and a spicy finish.

Nice crisp pumpkin beer. Not too heavy and just enough spice (nutmeg). I am not a huge pumpkin beer drinker but this was very nice especially with sweet potato fries.

strongpieman (1644) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle. Aroma is pumpkin and allspice, with some sweetness. Nice Orange amber color, clear, light head. Medium body, some carbonation, finish is good with some flavors that linger but not too much. Taste picks up the spice. Overall, this is a pretty good pumpkin beer ... not too much on the spice, good intrinsic ale.

blazingspiral (170) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Pour from a 12 oz. bottle. Golden color, clear liquid, fluffy white head, fat bubbles. Big aroma of pumpkin pie, including a strong dose of nutmeg. Delicious flavor includes a malt character that reminds me of toasty pie crusts. Pleasant aftertaste reveals subtle hops bitterness along with a harmonious blend of spices. A great example of the pumpkin ale style. Interesting and highly drinkable.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden with a small white froth. Aroma is mostly sweet, a bit of the earthy pumpkin character with a lower levels of spice, cinnamon and nutmeg, though theyíre still there. Flavor is a bit spicier, the pumpkin still kinda there, picking up some more pumpkin towards a slightly sweet grainyish finish, some light bitterness. Light medium to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Ok, nothing too crazy good

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours a nice glowing rich orange amber with a frothy thin white head 3.5. Has a pronounced vegetable gourd aroma, cut pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, softer usual spicing suspects, nutmeg and clove. Flavor follows, something a little vacant, fairly nice and truce pumpkin and spicing, little bit of bitterness on the finish, seems fairly weak in body for all that spice flavor. Body is light and fizzy like a miller lite.

italianjohn (2778) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Pale orange golden pour off white thin head .... aroma is earthy and warming pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) .... taste is sadly not as good as the aroma but it keeps the earthy theme with pumpkin spices and isnít half bad .... it has substance and more of the earthy than the spice which is what the description says they were going for

Bottled on Date: 8/3/11. Best pumpkin beer Iíve had yet, nice deep amber color with a mild spicy/pumpkin aroma. Very drinkable with no spicy after taste. You donít have to sip this beer due to over spice like other pumpkin beers. Spices are present but not overpowering so you can taste the pumpkin too. Iíll be picking up this pumpkin beer again.
