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.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2012
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 arenít 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.

Pours clear copper color, small head. Very spicy aroma with distinct pumpkin, some fruits and yeast. Spicy and fruity flavor, herbal notes and some hay. Lingering spicy aftertaste. Surprisingly good pumpkin ale.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 14, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a white thick white head. Aroma of pumpkin, nuttiness and bread. Flavour of pumpkin, nuts, grains, some spiciness, grapefruit and earth. A bit musty. Medium bodied and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes grainy and very pumpkin-y. Unusual.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a clear light orange colored body that yields a one finger white head that immediately dies to a film. Some nice ringy lacing appears and no carbonation is seen rising. The smell had some light pumpkin up front and really thatís about it. The taste got a little better as the pumpkin combined a bit more with the ginger, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. On the palate, it sat light and has the carbonation showing some presence but not overbearing, just enough to show its there. This is an extremely drinkable beer. Overall, a session pumpkin ale, but I tend to like the heavier ones.

mile (2730) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sugary sweetish aroma, some caramel and vegetables (pumpkin?) with some spiciness (coriander). Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some vegetable spiciness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, light caramel, some notes of vegatalbles with some spiciness, light alcohol. Beer with pumpkins and spices = Why?

A very pleasant aroma of pumpkin to start with. A decent ale with just a hint of pumpkin but heavier on the spices.

Bottle at home. Looks nice with the crystal clear orangish color. Smells mostly of nutmeg.Pumpkin aroma but tiring in the end. The spice is overpowering the whole thing. But a nice bitter ending. Not my thing. Y
