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.

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.

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.

Dark amber body with medium creamy head. Aroma has spicy character with pumpkin notes, clove, floral, pine. Taste has medium christmas spice bitterness, background of pumpkin sweetness. Dry and astringency texture. Body is full, high carbonation. I had worse pumpkin ale, but not a better one, that said I cannot say I like it.

O aroma e o sabor de abóbora são bem sutis, mas são muito agradáveis. O retrogosto me lembrou barra de cereal. Muito gostoso. O pessoal não gostou muito da aparência mas eu achei bem atraente. Bela cerveja e não é enjoativa !
