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.

Really light spice aroma; a lot more in the flavor (not too much), combined with some bread/dough and sweet malt character -- which complements the spice pretty well. I get a light banana flavor, too... Not sure if that’s from the spices or yeast or what. A nice brew, as pumpkin spiced beers go...

Generally with a pumpkin ale I expect a good smell, but this was the worst smelling pumpkin ale I have ever had. It smelled a little like a dead fish. The taste was slightly better that the smell, but not by much. The quality of the beer is sub-standard for this style. It had a good head and even better head retention.

Pours amber with a medium off white head. Aroma is light pumpkin, nutmeg, caramel and earthy. Taste is sweet with a touch of spice. Light bodied. Very nice pumpkin beer as its understated qualities make it stand out in a sea of over spiced offerings.

Amber pour. Spices needed in the nose are barely noticeable. The flavors are very vegetable like. It lacks the sweetness and spices needed to make this enjoyable. This one didn’t make it.

The aroma was of bread an yes pumpkin. The appearance was a cloudy orange with a medium cream head. The taste was a bit flat and a bit of bread and pumpkin. The beer is easy to drink but overall was a bit on the week side.

Tried this in the bottle, nice roasted pumpkin flavor with hints of clove, cinnamon and nutmeg. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beaver (1773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2012
12 oz bottle, best by 2/9/13. Pours clear ruby-amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing.

The aroma is mellow pumpkin and spices.

The flavor is vegetal malts with nice spicing - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice. There’s a bit of a metallic finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly sharp carbonation.

Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It’s a bit mellow, but the spicing is well done.

Poured a brown-amber color. Aroma of pumpkin, spices, nutmeg. Taste is of same, but a little watered down. Bit as full bodied as other pumpkin ales I've tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. bottle from SoHo Organic Market in Elizabeth City, NC. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin is very strong compared to other pumpkin beers I have tried. Also contains some pumpkin pie spices. Decent pupkin taste that really picks up a lot of the roastiness but causes there to be very little finish. A decent pumpkin beer.
