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.

My favorite pumpkin ale so far, but thatís not saying much. The others have been generally pretty bad. Pours a disturbingly light and clear amber color. Aroma is a bit weak - not all that much there - some cinnamon, and a bit of hops. Flavor is mostly pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg, with some hops presence and a touch of caramel. There is not nearly enough malt character in my opinion. A serviceable brew, itís at least smooth and drinkable.

aracauna (3114) - Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Pours a clear, medium copper with a sizeable sandy off-white foam. The aroma comes up with a whiff of hops in the first sniff, but after it sits for a few minutes, cinnamon and nutmeg come out and overtake the hops. The caramel malt flavors meld nicely with the pumpkin (you can actually pick out the pumpkin flavor in this and not just the spices) and spices to make for a decent beer. Still, Iíd like to see this with a little more body and a little chunkier malt. Otherwise, itís good.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2004
Expectations exceeded results. Aroma of spice, pumpkin and cinammon. Not a very heavy or complex bodied ale, rather dry and somewhat bitter. The spice and pumpkin flavor dominated and not in a good way with no backing from the ale.

Bottle. Bitter to taste, but then the pumpkin and spices take over. Itís enjoyable, but I canít help but think that there could have been a better beer behind the nice balance of pumpkin and spices.

Very bitter, lacked full body flavor I was looking for, wasnít expecting the dullness that the taste provided, i was expecting an abundance of pumpkiuness decadance, but no.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2004
Very fresh. Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma of spices. Cinnamon, mace, nutmeg and herbs. Pumpkin pie in the flavour. Cream. Mushroom earthiness. Crusty bread. Bolder in the start. Peters off in the finish. Still, very good.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 I tried this one once last year. I do not recall being particularly impressed. Tried it again now to rate it. My opinion has not really changed any. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle the beer pours a medium amber color with a large fluffy yellow head that lingers. The aroma is sweet and has nice amounts of nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is surprisingly dry. The spice is there but relatively subdued. There in not much else there but the mild spice. Very dry on the finish. I doubt that I would get this one again.

OldGrowth (2712) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bottle, from Julioís. Good nose, Pumpkin,nutmeg,cinnamon like it says on the label. Clean orange color. Small to no head. Bitter flavors, Same as aroma, though the cinnamon and nutmeg overdo the pumpkin. Thin body, lite creaminess,little bitterness on finish, though I think its the cinnamon. Tasty, very drinkable. Iíve had better pumpkin ales though

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Bottle. Pours copper/amber with a small head. You can smell the pumpkin as soon as you open the bottle. Some other spices in the aroma as well. Flavor like pumpkin pie. Not too bad, but seemed a little watery.

Beer on the Pier. Although I only had a few ounces of this, I probably wouldnít have had much more if it was from either a bottle or a pint. Light pumpkin spice flavor and hardly any other spices. Another dissapointing beer from Brooklyn Brewery.
