Post Road's appearance is that of an Irish Ale. Spiced pumpkin aroma announces the beer style to your nose. Well balanced beer, has enough flavor to make it drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
I sit here and ask myself why am I about to drink this beer? I do not even like pumpkin. Have I become a slave to RateBeer? Anyhow, clear orange body, small white head. The odor of 1 week old carved porch pumpkin hits you the second the bottle is opened. There might be other aromas behind that odor but if there are I can not detect them. The flavor is a cloying wallop of pumpkin pie spice with a dash of bready malt towards the end. The body is medium and pumpkiny. It is official I hate pumpkin beers. Why must we be subjected to these abominations year-after-year?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY.</br> Amber with a bone coloured frothy head. Spicey roast pumpkin aroma. Spicy bitter flavour that tastes more like the grey/green skins of the pumpkin then the flesh. This beer was hard drinking but there seemed to be lots of novelty mileage as lots of other punters where trying it.

amber color, thin white head. aroma is that of Old Spice, cinnamon and cloves, with the pumpkin being rather subdued. flavor is very much Old Spice, with clove and cinnamon. not bad, but this beer is more about the spices than the pumpkin.

My first pumpkin ale. Very interesting. Loads of cloves and cinnamon in this one. Slightly sour pumpkin flavour. Slightly thin, but funny.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper-amber color; poor head. Very strange, but nice, perfumy aroma, fruits (oranges, apricots), rhum, spices… Dry mouthfeel, ordinary. Finishes with a mild caramel/bitterness. Good try for the aroma, but the rest...
A big thank to Jens (Ungstrup), Jacob (Lövenlund) and Rasmus (Nørrebro Bryghus) for all the effort!

Poured an amber color with a small tan head. Spicy aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Very spicy, cinnamon taste with a rather weak, watery mouthfeel.

Bad, but not bad enough to be interesting. Surely all that hops and barley could be put to better use than the manufacture of this dull, muddy beer. Like a fool, I buy one every year to see if they've done anything to make this something other than a bunch of malt fighting with some nutmeg. No luck yet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is dominated by pumpkin. The color is amber and it has a fine though disappearing head. The flavor is also dominated by pumpkin and cloves. It has a rather dry end.
