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.

Sampled on tap at Beer on the Pier in NYC. Orange/amber color with a small off white head. Sweet aroma of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin. Flavor wasnít as sweet as expected. Pumpkin taste is mild, but the spices really stand out.

Very subtle pumpkin flavoring, but good overale for a spiced ale. A big sip gives you a flavor packed dose ... I think some potential remains to make a phenomenal brew. Itís that sweetness and ale balance, but I feel Post Road does a great attempt here. I had to remind myself, trying it for like the fourth time.

I found this beer flat and overly pumpkiny in flavor. I like pumpkin beers, but I was unable to discern any other flavors in the mix, especially not the promised spices.

One of the better pumpkin beers that I have tried. Not overly spicy and well balanced, this one is a winner for the season and for the style.

Granted there are better pumpkin aleís out there, but this one has enough character to stand out by itself. The beer pours a very interesting orange color that is nearly unnatural, but still pretty cool. The head is an off-white and sits nicely on top of the beer through the entire glass. I feel like Iím drinking a pumpkin pie, all of the spices are there: nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and most importantly a very delicious hint of pumpkin. Mild carbonation makes this beer an all-around success. A very drinkable beer, this is a holiday favorite among my roommates. I finished 4 tonight and loved every minute of it.

If I hadnít tried the smuttynose pumpkin ale I would have been more impessed. The post road tastes more like bud with pumpkins in it, while the smuttynose beer is mixed with wonderful spices and an aroma that is second to none. Overall, I would say this is a good beer if you canít get the smuttynose.

This beer was sent to me by beeradvocate spiritdeus as part of a trade. I sampled it right after Buffalo Billís Pumpkin Ale to provide a contrast. This beer poured a clear orange yellow in color, with mild carbonation and a thin, but durable head. The aroma was very subtly spiced, with a delicate mix of cinnamon and nutmeg. The taste was creamy and a bit on the sweet side. There was a hint of pumpkin, but the resinous hops and the biscuity malts were balancing it quite nicely. The spices blended in and faded out as session wore on. The mouthfeel was nicely dry and roasty and did not convey a watered down impression at all. A sessionable charming beer that is quite different from the hop monsters I usually crave, but a quality brew nonetheless.

Pours a light copper with a thin white head. Spicey nose. Clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, and LOTS of pepper on the tongue. LOTS of pepper and a little bit of pumpkin. This doesnít hold a candle to Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.

One of my favorites, it just strikes me right. Unlike other pumpkins, such as Blue Moon, Buffalo Bills and Rock Creeks, this one doesnít assault you with true pumpkin taste. Definitely the best of the pumpkin ales, has a full body to it, with hints of nutmeg, clove and cinnamon.

Yellow-amber w/ off white head. Aroma of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, & clove. Light feel. Pumpkin pie flavour w/ all the trimmings (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, pepper). Some crustiness & light hops. Dryish finish.
