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.

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.

Bottle. Amber with medium off-white head. Strong spice and pumpkin aroma. Flavor is fairly interesting--pumpkin at first, and then a strong burst of spice followed by a semi-bitter finish. Sweetness present throughout flavor. Good beer.

Buffalo Brewfest 04. Subtle pumpkin spices in aroma. Great cloudy orange colour. Pumpkin flavour is subtle but surprisingly balanced. Rounded off by a light dry malt taste and a good amount of carbonation. The best pumpkin beer Iíve tried.

tap. wonderful nutmeg aroma and sweet pumpkin spice flavors, full flavors without going overboard... a bit of a bitter finish, but still overall balenced.

I honestly donít mind a pumpkin beer when things are in correct proportion. My rating for this may not account for the way this beer is put together. It has some good things going for it. The pour is reddish-orange in color with a decent head, fading quickly. The nose is spicy, and the flavor is........ well, complex. The front of the beer shows the "holiday" spice, the middle has the biscuity malt flavor, and the pumpkin takes a minute to kick in. Unfortunately, thatís when the lasting nutmeg (almost salty at times) decides to uninvite itself back to the party. It starts ok, and appears to seem ok until the "bitter end"... pardon the pun.... I would enjoy this beer more if I didnít feel like I had eaten pure pretzel salt at the end of it. It almost tastes like spices were added just for the sake of adding spices. They donít seem in balance and harmony with the rest of the beerís body. I wasnít a huge fan, but I do believe that it wouldnít take a lot to make this beer really good, really quick.

Had this after trying the Blue Moon pumpkin ale. This was definitely the superior. The pumpkin is there but not super almost artificial pumpkin taste. Same goes for the spices. They mix together for something nice, not as spicy as the Dogfish Head pumpkin ale, but not as bland as the Blue Moon.

Nice tasting. A more regularly drinkable pumpkin beer. Dogfishís might be very spicy and loaded, but this one concentrates more on the pumpkin. Also like the attempt at a colonial style label. So really the question we should be asking is, "Would Benjamin Franklin drink this?" This will become a seminal question from hereon in as I taste new beers and think of what their rating should be. Not Sam Adams, mind you, he was biased, but that great beer drinker Ben, with his smashing intellect and incisive quaffing skill. How I love pumpkin.
