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.

(tap at d.b.a.) Clear pale-copper body with a small white head. Very nice fruity and spicy (basil, cinnamon, nutmeg) aroma. Smells like a spicy cinnamon bun. Taste is a letdown. Body is a bit watery. First you get some fruity notes, then nothing, then a surprising medium bitterness. Nothing offensive but you won’t find many things as uninspiring this Halloween as this pumpkin Ale except maybe for a pair of big glasses and a fake moustache.

Any first impressions?
-A veil of foam settles atop the clear, light orange.
-An attractive spicy pumpkin pie perfume showcases plenty of nutmeg and pumpkin seeds.
-The first half of the sip exhibits the aforementioned pumpkin pie flavors, but the last half is not as outgoing.
-The lean body is very drinkable, but watery passages make it too thin to my liking.

What if you dig deeper?
-The feeble finish is aqueous and boring.
-A little more maltiness in flavor and body would have been nice.
-Spices aren’t overdone in this well-balanced flavor profile.
-This is a pumpkin ale obviously made for sessions and novelty lovers. I don’t think you win from being overly critical with this beer.

On tap at d.b.a., Manhattan.

Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkins and spice. The flavor is sweet, pumpkins, and spice. Good beer.

This was one of the better pumkin ales I have tried. Decent blend of pumkin flavor and spice. Hoppy finish. Not bad

This is a great autumn beer to help you get ready for the long winter. The amber color screams Halloween and the taste is even better. Rich taste yet very smooth finish with a solid head, It’s hard to wait for this beer to be brewed, year after year. Pumpkin spices are pungent in this fine amber ale.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - OCT 23, 2006
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.

Veeve (312) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - OCT 22, 2006
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.
