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.

Decent brown sugar, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, and clove aroma. Could smell all of these, but all were weak. Smelled watery. Good long finish with a taste that rests on the tongue. Seemed a bit thin. I would’ve like more malt and spiceness in this one. Probably could drink a lot of these at a tailgate party. Wouldn’t get drunk as fast.

served at NYC Great World Beer Festival (a Brewtopian Event). pours a translucent orange-gold hue with a small, white carbonated head, that lasts but leaves little lacing. the aroma is lightly spiced. some cinnamon, some nutmeg. I’m big on the nutmet. The mouthfeel is relatively creamy and the flavors are considerably sweet. a hint of pumpkin, bready yeast, cinnamon, nutmeg, wheat. the flavors are not semi-well-balanced and finish dry.

Sampled this at the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival. At first sip I thought of candy. Now it’s just a beer. No spice? Amber color. thin, invisible head. Good be better.

12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer. Creamy white head. Aroma of nutmeg and allspice. Also a light sugary sweetness and a nice caramel maltiness. Some zesty/spicy hop aroma as well that differentiates this from other pumpkin beers I’ve had recently. Flavour is a bit thin and hot though. Spices seem a bit stale and woody rather than bright. Decent malt profile but it tastes quite alcoholic for something that only rings in at 5% ABV. Herbal hop bitterness an the back. Meh, I could take it or leave it.

On tap at the Blue Dog Tavern. Pours an amber color, not much head. Faint aroma of spices and malts. Flavor was dominated by the pumpkin pie spices, although I could detect some pumpkin in there. An average pumpkin ale at best.

I am tasting this one along side Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale by Anheuser-Busch. The Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a clear amber/copper color with moderate carbonation, no head, and very little crown (pretty much identical in appearance to the Jack’s Pumpkin Spice). Aroma is subtle hops and pumpkin with a dash of cinnamon spice. The flavor is malt, some pumpkin, and a little spice. The malt, bitterness, pumpkin, and spice seems to be pretty well balanced, but all are kind of weak and suppressed. The finish seems a bit medicinal and thin. Medium body and a good level of carbonation. I really like all the brews from Brooklyn Brewery except for this one. Their Post Road Pumpkin Ale is their most disappointing offering. It’s better than the Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale and some of the other pumpkin ales available, but I really think that Brooklyn could have done better. So far the Southampton Pumpkin Ale is my top pick pumpkin ale. 12 oz bottle, $1.60 from The Party Source.

disappointing.....flat with minimal taste. I could barely detect the pumkiness or spices- very light, some hop bitterness but little else to comment on.

amber with a dissapearing white head. nice balanced malty pumpkin and pumpkin spice aroma. bittersweet pumpkin and spice flavor with a bit of hops. spices shine through on finish. fairly bitter. medium-light body.

12 oz- Pours a nice orange-red with a tan bubbly head. Hoppy scent but bland taste. Hard to detect spices for a pumpkin ale. Rather flat.
