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.

Not the best tasting pumpkin ale, but man that aroma brought it up to the head of the pack. If I had a clogged nose, Weyerbacher would be king, but this aroma is so tense. Strong pumpkin, nutmeg and a (dare I say) a plethora of spice? Pour was typical...nice light amber with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was very pumpkinny but more vegetably than the others. Tastes like a bunch of vegetables blended together and mixed with the sweet elixir that beer is. Very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a one finger off-white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of pumpkins, and pumpkin spice. Taste is the same as aroma with a light bready character. Thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. A good pumpkin ale but it needs a little more malt sweetness to balance out the pumpkin and spices.

I was really looking forward to this (my first pumpkin of the season), and was really disappointed. Little flavor of any kind...some cinnamon and spicyness, but not much. Look elsewhere for Pumpkin.

Rated while drinking: Pours a light-hued golden orange color with a fluffy off-white head. Lots of bubbles too. Smells of (surprise) pumpkins, sweet spices (lots of cinnamon) and not too much else. Pleasant aroma though. Taste is cold pumpkin pie. Spices are as prevalent in the nose as on the tongue. Clean, fresh taste as well. Aftertaste makes you want to take another sip. Tasty nonetheless. Smooth on the palate, a little carbonation and very easy to drink. But I find myself sipping this beer because its too tasty not to. I have an affinity for these pumpkin brews, and especially with the seasons changing, I find myself getting very very excited about autumn and winter seasonals. This beer got me that much more excited.

I love fall beer. Medium dark brown rusty colored body. Nose of semi-sweet, pulpy pumpkin, with light hints of cinnamon and apples. Wet and slippery up front, then a little brash, then generally unsweet lightly pasty across the back. Flavor is best described as pumpkin-infused cardboard, since the pumpkin characteristics, while easily noticed, lack vibrancy, lack depth, and lack fullness. Comes across as plain and simple, almost like a poorly constructed brown ale with a moderately hint of pumpkin flavor. Could benefit from some brown sugar yeast flavors and a little sweetness. I’m complaining a lot only because it wasn’t spectacular, and in all honesty I enjoyed drinking this since I’m generally a big fan of pumpkin beer.

clear light amber with a medium white head...aroma of spice, cinammon and malts...semi sweet pumpkins and nutmeg...thin mouthfeel...plain finish...interesting beer...cloves, nutmeg, caramel and bisquits...like a beer version of pumpkin pie....I love pumpkin pie and I realy enjoyed this beer...more of a novelty for me than a regular

Sweet cinnamon and caramel aroma. Crystal clear dark amber color, medium vanishing head. Nutmeg and slightly tinny taste. Tinny finish. Bitter finish does not compliment the spicy foretaste very well. Drinkable.

Tap @ Boston University Pub, Boston, MA (Rated 9/06). Pours an orange-copper color with a prominent white head. Aroma is strong pumpkin with small hints of clove, cinnamon, and what appears to be allspice thrown in. Taste is overpowering in pumpkin, which ultimately takes away from the beer. A miss for Brooklyn.

Rated 9/3/06: The temperature is dropping and the fall seasonals have been popping up. Pumpkin Ales are meant to be enjoyed this time of year and this is a rather good offering. Nice full pumpkin aroma with spicy hints of clove and cinnamon. Golden dark copper color with a huge creamy head that ultimately settles and leaves some decent lacing. Mouthfeel is good and crisp, wish it were a bit thicker and creamier though. Flavor has a nice balance, the pumpkin is easily detected but not overdone. Good spiciness of clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon. The aftertaste lingers for a while giving a nice sweet finish. Out of the ordinary and well done Im sure there are better out there but this one still hits the mark.
