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.

Sampled on 9/24/2011. This pumpkin beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, hint of pumpkin and spices. A light to medium bodied beer. The malts are fruity and sweet, with some pumpkin. The hops are herbal. Decent carbonation. The man problem with this beer is that is somewhat watery, probably due to the fact that its only 4% ABV. Not sure if this is a brewery decision, or having to do with the weird Utah Alcohol laws Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Pours brown and has a pumpkin aroma with similar flavor. It lacks the spices though. Decent beer but not a good pumpkin.

Clear cinnamon burnt orange with a small lasting head. Aroma is very nutmeg centric with tones of pumpkin pie filling. Thatís a great, full aroma. Taste is sweet with balancing bitterness, so itís not a typical ho-hum pumpkin ale. A little too medium bodied, but the flavor has a lot of nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie filling. Ends a little hoppy bitter, just a little. Marvelous pumpkin ale.

Block (2324) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Faint aroma with hardly any pumpkin or spice. A nice spice flavor upfront which fades to a pale ale finish. Itís alright but could really use a little more pumpkin flavor. A little bland.

Bleh. Couldnít taste much pumpkin, a lot of nutmeg but light beer overall without the palate you would want in a pumpkin beer (Iíve had at least a dozen of them). Not a good example of what pumpkin should be. Doesnít taste bad, just not a good pumpkin.

Bottle. Brown color. Malt, brown color. Tastes of pumpkin, squash and bread. Not my favorite style, but this is ok

Bottle. Pours orange with off white head. Nose/taste of pumpkin, pie crust, graham cracker and hint of all spice. Medium body. Good balance.

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 (9235) - 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.
