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.

In a pumpkin beer bonanza, this one stood out above some of the rest. There is a clear pumpkin aroma, and taste, with hints of spice (clove). Pretty good, and worth revisiting.

coachd (337) - Missouri, USA - AUG 21, 2015
The aroma is straight pumpkin pie with less emphasis on the sugar and more on the crust and whipped cream. Very spicy. Nice amber color with a fluffy white head. Taste is pumpkin, spice and pie crust without the unnecessary sweetness of some other pumpkin ales. Metallic aftertaste. Watery palate. Average pumpkin beer.

Not all that great. Pretty average all the way around but I still drank a few anyways.

vyvvy (4726) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours amber with an off-white head. The aroma has graham crackers, pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and crustiness. It has a fairly light body with lots of mild carbonation. The flavor starts with pie crust, toasty dry malt, dried spices, pumpkin and some nuttiness. The finish has a mild astringency that kinda works for it. Pretty decent for a pumpkin ale.

TH28 (263) - - AUG 15, 2015
12oz bottle. Code date 1/14/16. Appearance: Amber/light brown with a slight haziness and frothy off white head and decent lacing. Aroma: Pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) with a light toastiness. Taste: Medium malt sweetness with strong bready and toasty malt flavors. The pumpkin spicing in the aroma is strangely missing on the tongue. A slight cooked pumpkin and nutmeg flavor show up on the swallow, but overall taste profile is fairly one demensional. Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate carbonation. Finish: Enough bitterness to balance, finishing with a lingering toasted malt and light pumpkin spice. Overall: A very low spiced pumpkin beer. Nice bready and toasty malt backbone, but while the pumpkin spice shows up in the aroma it’s almost non existent in the taste.

KyotoLefty (7853) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 4, 2015
Can. Glowing deep brown-orange, cloudy, thick lace. Malty caramel nose, like a brown ale, not much spice, a bit of citrus, earthy hops. Malty flavor, light spice, caramel and chocolate, some citrus hops. Medium to full body. Solid enough as a beer.

12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. Pours light amber with thin off-white head. Aroma is full of rich sweet pumpkin spice. Taste is medium pumpkin spice again and nutty light caramel malt. Brown sugar notes as well. Finishes clean though rather thin.

bottle. Pale amber with small head. This is a pretty average pumpkin beer. Slightly tart to start. More pumpkin than spice. Rather bland.
