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 this at the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival. At first sip I thought of candy. Now itís just a beer. No spice? Amber color. thin, invisible head. Good be better.

12 oz bottle. Deep golden/amber beer. Creamy white head. Aroma of nutmeg and allspice. Also a light sugary sweetness and a nice caramel maltiness. Some zesty/spicy hop aroma as well that differentiates this from other pumpkin beers Iíve had recently. Flavour is a bit thin and hot though. Spices seem a bit stale and woody rather than bright. Decent malt profile but it tastes quite alcoholic for something that only rings in at 5% ABV. Herbal hop bitterness an the back. Meh, I could take it or leave it.

On tap at the Blue Dog Tavern. Pours an amber color, not much head. Faint aroma of spices and malts. Flavor was dominated by the pumpkin pie spices, although I could detect some pumpkin in there. An average pumpkin ale at best.

I am tasting this one along side Jackís Pumpkin Spice Ale by Anheuser-Busch. The Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a clear amber/copper color with moderate carbonation, no head, and very little crown (pretty much identical in appearance to the Jackís Pumpkin Spice). Aroma is subtle hops and pumpkin with a dash of cinnamon spice. The flavor is malt, some pumpkin, and a little spice. The malt, bitterness, pumpkin, and spice seems to be pretty well balanced, but all are kind of weak and suppressed. The finish seems a bit medicinal and thin. Medium body and a good level of carbonation. I really like all the brews from Brooklyn Brewery except for this one. Their Post Road Pumpkin Ale is their most disappointing offering. Itís better than the Jackís Pumpkin Spice Ale and some of the other pumpkin ales available, but I really think that Brooklyn could have done better. So far the Southampton Pumpkin Ale is my top pick pumpkin ale. 12 oz bottle, $1.60 from The Party Source.

disappointing.....flat with minimal taste. I could barely detect the pumkiness or spices- very light, some hop bitterness but little else to comment on.

12 oz- Pours a nice orange-red with a tan bubbly head. Hoppy scent but bland taste. Hard to detect spices for a pumpkin ale. Rather flat.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue). Deep coppery brown colour. Moderately attractive nose the clean malt combines well with the aromatic fruit of the pumpkin. The spicing wasnt quite so great with warm cinnamon, hints of nutmeg and almost peppery notes - whilst individually attractive I felt the cinnamon was overdone and overrode the subtleties that could have been presented. The final element of the nose was a faint (or imagined) baked buttery dairy product feel which was distracting and uncomplementary. In the mouth this was not bad, the nutmeg became more apparent and the sweetness was mild and balanced with a smattering of hops creating a soft bitterness. Unfortunately the finish left something to be desired - thin and spritzy with hints of yeast, (quite reminscent, but not as bad, of wit I made several years ago where I burnt the wort and to top matters of it became infected) the poor feeling of the finish grew as I drank the beer. Some nice elements but doesnít quite come together and that finish doesnt agree with me.

Bottle. Poured clear orange amber with a large fizzy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy pumkin pie spicy aroma. Moderate body with a sticky texture with soft carbonation. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet spice finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable beer.
