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.

Bottle. Nice orange color. Sort of sweet and malty with hints of autumn spices and pumpkin. High carbonation and nice balance between the spices and pumpkin, however this also means that the pumpkin does not stand out on its own. Overall pretty good pumpkin ale if you like it more spiced than distinctly pumpkin.

Bottle. Amber with a thin white head. Squash, vegetal, dandelion, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dry cinnamon flavor that fades out to an unsalted pretzel. Lighter, watery body.

Modestly good news for 2015: this still pours an attractive, clear coppery amber with a good-sized off-white head and good retention. But the nose is greatly improved, with pie spices and vanilla now noticeable along with some fruit. That continues in the glass, where the pumpkin now is more recognizable and slightly richer as opposed to a more generic and slightly sour squash. It’s nice to a brewery learning as it goes. The 2014 version was more of a history project than a tasty drink. But this still has a fairly mild flavor _ certainly lovers of Pumking or Punkin will each give it a pass, though for different reasons _ and it doesn’t come within a league of St. Ambroise. Still, what was poor is now decent. Progress.

On draft after paddle boarding in Annapolis. Hazy amber / orange with off white head and lacing. Pumpkin and spice on the nose... Amber ale malt and noted of Nunez with cinnamon... Very nice seasonal ale...

Idiosynkrasie (5160) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2015
355ml bottle. Barely clear amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Arome of pumpkin and spices, predominantly ginger, bath salt character overall. Taste is slightly soapy, I get more ginger than pumpkin; monotonous, uninspired, loveless.

I had it on tap. This was one of the first pumpkin beers I tried. It pours a nice amber with good head and lacing. The aroma is a nice pumpkin and nutmeg mix. The taste is the same with some caramel malt. It’s not overwhelming on any level. It’s a nice simple balance with a smooth drinkabilility.

BBD 1/16. Pours a clear medium amber. Outstanding head volume, world class lacing and retention. World class rich nose of pumpkin spice (cinnamon, nutmeg) over biscuit with hints of herbal hop. Heavy light body that is semi-smooth. Normal carbonation with a hint of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. The flavor profile is very good but fails to live up to the potential of the nose. It lacks the sweetness needed for balance and complexity. Pumpkin is only hinted at. It begins with an outstanding blended spice flavor that gets a hint of bitterness in the middle. As the finish approaches, hints of biscuit/caramel sweetness is underneath. The finish is a slightly crisp fade of spice.
