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.

Bottle: Poured an orange copper color with a white head. The aroma was sweet malts and nutmeg. The flavor is pumpkin, biscuits, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Overall, decent but not great.

onceblind (4670) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Clear brilliant golden/copper with a thin foamy white head. Mellow nose of earthy pumpkin and a touch of light spice. Also a dash of ginger. The ginger flavor comes through a bit strong with a bit of gourd and allspice. Not too spicy but has more ginger than I appreciate.

Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma is pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon and caramel. Taste is sweet throughout. Medium bodied with smooth texture.

Bottle at home. Clear amber colour. Pumpkin flavour with subtle notes of allspice. Rather light tasting but it wasn’t bad.

Clear amber, medium white head. Odd aroma of vegetables, which makes sense. Lightly spiced flavour and fine carbonation makes it slightly reminiscent of a saison, but you can definitely taste the pumpkin. Perhaps a little overly sweet, but not sickly. Odd, but not unpleasant.

This works surprisingly well. Lots of pumpkin and cinnamon in a biscuity, malty ale. The hop notes are dull but they’d probably have to be to make this work.

sawbuck (368) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Aroma of spices and some cinnamon. Orange amber color...thin head. Faint malty sweetness up front. Spices are somewhat muted initially. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and candies mixed in. Not that sweet, unlike other pumpkin beers. Finish has a dry bitterness...lingers a bit. Somewhat chalky mouth feel. Meh.

bartlebier (1981) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2014
Several 12oz bottles and samples spread over 10-11/2014 workshops and tastings. The nutmeg and cinnamon waft forth from the bottle as artificial aromas, as if from a plastic-wrapped Bahlsen pumkin cake. Drinks vaguely spicy on a crisp, almost too clean and thin Vienna-like palate, with some 3rd party maltiness coming in as it warms, where it develops an (orchard) fruity sweetness. Slightly astringent veg peel finish, where the hops decide to join in. Overall too faint and artificial compared to what pumpkin can do in terms of mouthfeel, body and aroma in small-batch or homebrew beers. If need be I would prefer a chunkier pumpkin ale at a slightly higher abv.

Chopper925 (204) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle. Clear, amber brown color, small to no head. Pumpkin and spice aromas, reminds of german "Spekulatius". Dry taste, good bitterness. Aftertaste is nice pumpkin, cinnamon and spices. Medium body and fresh carbonation.

gegwilson (1483) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle from a deli in Glasgow. Pours amber with a cream head. The aroma a pumpkin and cinnamon. A little too vegatable. The taste is a little odd. Cinamon and spiciness alongside some acidic notes. There’s a vegetable edge to it again. The body is thin. Interesting but not great.
