With the weather cooling and a freshly deposited paycheck, I visited my local beer store today and picked up a wide variety of seasonal beers. I'd never seen or heard of this one, and I figured, what the hell?

Big mistake.

Appearance: This beer pours a decent orange-ish amber color. I couldn't generate much head, even with a fairly aggressive pour. What little head it did produce (about a half-finger) disappeared almost immediately.

Smell: I detect a faint pumpkin-ish aroma, and a hint of either nutmeg or cinammon. But it's too faint to pin down.

Taste: What a disappointment! Yeah, I can taste the pumpkin, but it tastes...a little bit burnt, maybe? And I mean that in a bad way; I love nice, toasty malts, but those just aren't there with this beer. The prevailing flavors are of VERY mild pumpkin, a nearly imperceptible hint of spice, and...soapy water. Not good.

Mouthfeel: VERY little carbonation, and an absurdly light body. It's almost a vaguely pumpkin-flavored tonic water, minus most of the bubbles. Except it's oddly slippery, with essentially no body or heft.

Drinkability: I wasted money on a six-pack I'd never heard of. I'm tempted not to finish the first one, and the other five will likely be foisted upon an unsuspecting acquaintance in the near future. I've had worse, but this one's not worth your time.

Poured from a 12oz can into a shaker pint glass. Aggressive pour yielded a good inch high thick head. Clear, orange/gold color- nice looking beer. Aroma is pretty weak with some light pumpkin aroma and a bit of spice. Taste is likewise pretty weak, with a slight taste of pumpkin pie filling and a bit of tartness. Very little malty sweetness and no hoppiness. Mouthfeel was pretty thin. Overall, not the greatest verion of a pumpkin ale out there, probably won't be buying this one again.

Punk'n is an exceptionally light and not particularly special pumpkin beer. It does seems to nail the style as it delivers a gourd or yam malt, starchy and dry. It ends with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice. I don't find this offensive by any measure just not bold enough to expect another glance.
