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.

Clear golden - orangish color with a decent head that dissipated quickly but left good lacing. The spices in the aroma come through very strong - cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Mmmm, smells like pumpkin pie. But unfortunately, I taste no pumpkin and those sweet smelling spices are barely noticeable. It just tastes like a weak light - bodied pale ale. And has a flat and thin palate as well. Dissapointing.

A golden/amber color, with a little white head. A small hint of spice and a deffinate pumpkin aroma.

Clear amber colour with a small off white head. Malty aroma with a light alcohol and spicy note. Malty, nutty flavor with a cinnamon spicyness. Very sweet finish.

Iíve had a few Pumpkin beers out of season, but it seemed that the season was gaining on me and I felt almost compelled to pull this POS off the shelf. The label disguised its gruesome face and I was offered no delight in the taste of pumpkin from this ale. In other words- itís a trick but no treat. If you want a good pumpkin ale, get a Dogfish and not this shite.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Clear opulent brass in color with some rising fizz lines running vertically from bottom to top and a thin ice sheet serving as the head. Aroma is right where I want it to be - rich pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar and a touch of pralines. If aroma were ever an aphrodisiac, this would be it. Itíd all be for naught though, as the flavor is a major turn off. Cinnamon and nutmeg lead this charge, first and foremost. Pumpkin backdoors it on the follow through. Thereís a tin twang that seers at the dactylic senses, kind of like licking the innards of the can of pumpkin clean. Medium bodied and fizzy, and effervescence is too much. Finishes like pumpkin pancakes and maple syrup distorted by acid. Nevertheless, Iím happy to have tried it - thanks for the bottle, Thaichile.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Quite spicy nose, some caramel malts, notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, some sweetness. Clear orange colored brew with a very small white head. Spicy flavor, cinnamon and nutmeg again, some sweetness from the malts.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Ultra fast disappearing head, clear amber color. Quite sharp aroma of pumpkin and spices, nutmeg. Vague roasted malt aroma with caramelly notes and tones of spices. Extremely sparkling and sharp in the mouth. Dissapointing.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle. Amber with small head. Certainly spicy (nutmeg and cinammon - didnít know at the time of drinking that those spices are actually in the beer!), pumpkin sweetness. In "my" part of the world, where halloween only exist in american movies, this beer would work well come christmas. Well made, just not my thing.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Bottle. Amber pour. Big pumpkin and spice aroma, with the nutmeg and pumpkin aromas fairly well balanced. Not much pumpkin in flavor - mostly malt and clovy spice, which made it feel unbalanced. A touch acidic.
