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.

Had on tap on Wild Monk. Served in a pint glass. A: Pours a nice amber color with a solid white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin cap that leaves nice sticky lace down the glass. S: Nice combinations of nutmeg and all spice with some background cinnamon. Warm biscuit and some fleshy pumpkin. Great nose. T: Sadly the taste is disappointing compared to the nose. Definitely lager yeast flavors and much bigger biscuit malt flavors. The pumpkin takes a back seat and the spices aren’t too pronounced. M: Medium to light bodied with a nice medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. O: The nose was great, but I felt like the taste was venturing into Marzen territory. Easily drinkable, but definitely lacking the definitive pumpkin pie flavors in the taste. I had a Schlafly pumpkin ale after this and it just confirmed my experiences.

Alpha10 (335) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
2014/09/22 - Pours a clear burnt orange-amber colour with a small, soapy, off white head that quickly reduces to a film. Very little lacing. Aroma is cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, caramel and mild pumpkin. Taste is subdued; pumpkin spices, light caramel and mild pumpkin. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, with averse carbonation and a mildly sweet and metallic finish. Aroma was nice, but taste was too diluted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jookos (2162) - FINLAND - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. Amber light haze. Pumpkins, caramels, but all in a rather unpleasant plastic/contained- manner. Feels like a bulk with some unnatural flavouring added. Soft medium bodied. Dried fruit fruity. Some hoppyness, caramels. Pretty boring overall. Feels too sterile, clean.

Spice is nice. Not to heavy but not light. Deep amber color. Rich Carmel flavor nutmeg and allspice. Ale has some hops but the sugars finish in the end.

On draft. Poured a deep amber color, pretty clear, no head or lacing. Aroma was mild pumpkin, spices, and some vanilla. Taste was the same, but pumpkin was really weak tasting and the beer was quite watery. Not a good beer.

Transfer from BA review on 8-30-12 Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice dark orange-amber color with a thick two finger off white head. The head fades over a moderate amount of time to leave a fairly nice level of lacing. Smell – The aroma is a mix of a sweet pumpkin, spice aromas of a pumpkin pie, and a caramel smell. The spice is a good blend of allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mixed with this are some lightly roasted malt aromas, giving overall, a quite a pleasant baked pumpkin smell. Taste – The taste begins with a lightly roasted malt flavor. Soon spices and a pumpkin flavor arrive on the scene. The spice flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice remain relatively light, but the pumpkin grows stronger as the taste moves on. In the end the stronger pumpkin flavor, mixed with the lightening of the malt and loss of any sweetness that was present before in the taste leaves a dry and more crisp pumpkin flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the light to average side with the carbonation level being just above average. Overall – It is an alright pumpkin beer. It has a nice look and aroma, but is a little too dry and the flavors are just malt and pumpkin, somewhat boring.

The body has a deep golden amber color with a tall foamy and off white colored head. The body has good clarity and the head has good retention as it slowly fades to a much thinner layer that hangs on well. On the way down the glass the head makes slick spotty lacing. In the nose there are pleasant pumpkin pie spices like clove, allspice and defiantly cinnamon, with some sweet roasted grain as well. The flavor has a base of sweet roasted grain and a healthy dose of bitter spice and dry leafy hops. Clove, cinnamon and other pie spices pop out and there is just enough pumpkin flesh flavor to make it work. The palate has a tingly carbonation and a medium body.
