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.

It looks like pumpkin, smells like pumpkin and tastes like pumpkin-flavored beer! Big aroma of nutmeg. Taste of cinammon and dough. Dry finish. A bit watery and very filtered.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours bronze with a small of-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie, spices, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet, pumpkin pie, and spices. The body is thin, yet this is still slightly enjoyable.

Aroma is pumpkin spice, ginger. Flavor is much the same, also cinnamon, with a malty backbone. I really like the fact that this beer is thin and light on the pumpkin. Ive had pumpkin brews that were just overpowering with the pumpkin. Or tasted like they used cheap ingredients. Recommended.

PilsnerPeter (3034) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2006 Pours a thin amber with a film for head. Aroma is light of ginger, and pumpkin pie. Very thin & watery with only a light suggestion of spice and a slight bitterness present in the finish. Not too good.

bottle. Aroma: Spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Pumpkin is there, but not as prevalent as I would have hoped. A touch of sweet malt and caramel. Appearance: Medium orange in color and clear. Off white head was thin and fleeting. Not much lacing. Flavor: Spices jump out front in the flavor, as well. Again cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove seem to be the major players. Pumpkin comes through clear with a light sourness. A good slightly sweet maltiness and a bit of caramel. Palate: Medium-light bodied and slightly watery. Medium-high carbonation. Finish was slightly sour. Overall: A pumpkin beer should showcase pumpkin, and this one doesn’t. More spicy with a pumpkin undertone. Not bad, but there are better.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2009 Decent pumpkin beer. The aroma is of the usually list of spices but this beer has the body that many pumpkin ales are lacking. One of my favorites but still never as good as i remember it/ want it to be from the previous year.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Pours orange with an off-white head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and some cloves. Tastes almost like a normal amber ale, a hint of pumpkin and bitterness. Dry finish, average palate.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2006
Pours a very clear pale orange with a thin tan head. Smells strongly of pumpkin spice, clove and nutmeg mostly. Some sweet malty aromas as well. Tastes lightly tart (surprisingly). Lots of pale malt breadiness then the spices and a nice clean finish. Crisp and dry and surprisingly full bodied. Decent drinker but nothing to write home about.
