COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle; Filtered.
Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a revival of a beer brewed by the early American colonists. Pumpkins were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious and they blended nicely with barley malt. Hundreds of pumpkins are blended into each batch of Post Road Pumpkin Ale, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center and crisp finish. Post Road Pumpkin Ale is spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.

355ml bottle. Nice deep amber color, thin white head. Aroma mostly of pumpkin, spices, not sure which, and wet wood. Flavor has pumpkin, nuts, sweetness and that wet wood again. More tart than sweet though. Not sure about the tart notes, but kinda goes well overall. High carbonation.

Pours cloudy orange. Earthy aromas followed by tastes of pumpkin spice, nutmeg, and hops. Sweet flavors end in a bitter aftertaste. An average beer, at best.

Bottle, in a dark pub, couldn’t judge appearance or head. Smells strongly of pumpkin and taste follows the smell. I’m getting spices and a little hops as well. But a little more bitter than I’d like for a fruit or spice beer.

Nate (3708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at Twisted Jimmy’s. Light pumpkin pie spice aroma, sweetish with no hops. Rich golden-orange amber clear with creamy off-white lacing head. Light body with medium carbonation. Starts with modest sweetness, light brown sugar and pumpkin pie spices. Clean finish with some nutty sweetness and no bitterness. Pretty complacent pumpkin beer; watery.

Nice color. At the beggining it is a little bit sweet, but then it comes a little bit bitter. Well balanced, but nothing special.

This was an excellent pumpkin ale experience! I am NOT a fan of too much pumpkin spice. I would describe most pumpkin beers as "pumpkin pie" beers. This is a subtle ale with tones of actual pumpkin. Very light and subtle on any pumpkin spice. If you are looking for a clean pumpkin beer, give this a try. Very similar to Indeed Sweet Yamma Jamma

On tap @ Buffalo Wild Wings in Brick. Pours a clear burnt orange color with a finger of foamy white head. Really nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted pumpkin, and lots of pumpkin pie spices. One of the better pumpkin beers I've had this season. Sweet caramel, earthy hop bitterness, and lots of spices, mainly cinnamon and clove.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with nice fluffy white head. Good lacing. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste up front is caramel with pumpkin and spices. Bitterness quickly follows with continued cinnamon and nutmeg spices. Nice bitter finish but not overly hoppy. More bitter than most pumpkin beers. Pretty good overall. Not as good as dogfish head or Pumking but above average pumpkin beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
