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.

chickenflea (339) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 19, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 Bottle. Light orange in color, the beer sported a tall foamy white head. Just average aroma. There is a very light pumpkin aroma, but little in the way of spices and malt. The taste is interesting at first but does not finish well with a spicy tanic aftertaste. Medium carbonation.I did not like the first bottle I tried. But after three (on different days) I am starting to see what they are trying to do. It is also not my favorite pumpkin beer. But it still good and unique in that it is not overly malty.

Artificial pumpkin aroma, wheat, spice, malt, hops. Earthy hops take over the pumpkin and spice but it is full flavored. Just ok.

radio_nowhere (833) - Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Bottle into pint glass, orangy-amber color with off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, clove (spice forward), roasty malt and light pumpkin. Taste is milder than aroma adding some light caramel and faint earthy bitterness. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, crisp with roasty/spices finish. Leans more light marzen with some pumpkin pie oomph, nice and refreshing.

bkurtz (807) - PERU - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle - Pours a clear amber/orange with a smallish head. Nice aromas of ginger and spice. Taste is bready with some pumpkin spice. Finish is somewhat soapy. Average at best.

Alpha10 (338) - 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 (2274) - 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.

Has a bit of an after taste. Kind of dry and lacks flavor. Nice aroma and appearance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

katrinaez (57) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2014
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.

bigda83 (215) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2014
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.

Slight spice taste and smell, not strong at all...just about right, but finish is a bit too watery...decent
