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.

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.

Drjohnrock (519) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 1, 2015
From 12 ounce bottle purchased as part of a mix six pack at Whitey’s Wine and Liquor Lawrenceburg, Indiana location, tasted on October 12, 2013. Medium slightly hazy orange hue, nice spicy/pumpkin nose, initial sweet spicy pumpkin taste followed by bitter/sour rankness. Bad bottle? It was well within the expiration date on the bottle. Not Brooklyn Brewery’s finest moment.

Tayeth (324) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
Schöne Mahagonifarbe mit relativ wenig Schaum. Geruch geht fast in Richtung Kräuterschnaps und auch der Geschmack geht etwas in diese Richtung. Insgesamt recht süß mit einer guten Textur. Kürbis schmecke ich allerdings nicht.

Geruch nach Muskat. Dazu ein paar Waldbeeren und estrige Noten. Im Geschmack trocken und trotzdem ’mundvoll’, im Abgang eher muffig. Interessant, wäre der Abgang besser, wäre es um Klassen besser.

Mahogany pour with a tan head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Taste is a nice pumpkin and spice combination. The cinnamon and ginger come out more in the finish.

MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: spicy, ginger, little sour, soft bitterness, bit weird. Aftertaste: little bitter, spicy, cloves, bit sour, meh.
