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.

Bottle.The pour was a cloudy dark amber with a small (less than 1 finger) creamy white head that dissipated rapidly and had fair lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt and a doughy yeast with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, allspice and pumpkin. The taste was sweet and mildly bitter with a hint of brown sugar and cinnamon in the beginning and then became quite bitter with a strong presence of allspice and a hint of pumpkin at the end. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow leaving a hint of bitter spice behind. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery yet dry in texture with a forceful carbonation. Overall a mild tasting Pumpkin Ale that had a spicy bitterness which laid on the taste buds for a little while.

Pours a clear amber with a thin layer of effervescent head. Aroma is pumpkin spices with apple juice notes. Flavor carries more of the spiced apple cider with a heavy level of carbonation that seems to take away from the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tried the original before the new BB label. Poured a light yellowish orange with fizzy head. Strong aroma of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon. Light and bubbly on the palate. Pumpkin spice is obviously the dominate flavor. Compliments a thanksgiving dinner very well.

Bottle. Amber Gold in colour. Spices (cinnamon & nutmeg) dominate. Sweet malt and light hops. Dry finish. Unpleasant vegetal bitterness in the aftertaste. Not for me. (2008)

December 2016 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Thanks Fergus! As Post Road Pumpkin Ale. Amber orange, translucent, foamy tan head, dotted lacing. Aroma is pumpkin spice, nutmeg, clove, ginger, toffee and fudge. A bit like one of those pumpkin lattes which are so popular nowadays. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is papery, nutmeg, woody peppery finish with some clove, quite dry. OK. (3.0)

October 25th, 2014 - Under the heavy red light of the bar, this beer is more a candy apple red, but I suspect given the style its more orange in nature. But whether or not its one shade or another on the spectrum, the head is clearly visible, with a nice mottled, webby texture, and enough grip to cling to the glass well after a sip. The aroma is hard to get in the bar thanks to aroma pollutants, but the flavor is clear and clean. Its mostly dry, more like a cracker, with a very faint pumpkin touch, playing in the background instead of shouting in the foreground.

Best by 02/17. Pours pretty golden amber, clear, orange tinged white head. Aroma is lots of cinnamon, pumpkin spice, nutmeg. Very nicely pumpkin spiced. More than I expected. Flavor is sort of generic ale, cinnamon undertones, nutmeg, earthy, some pumpkin, but Id call it mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. Kinda bitter finish for a pumpkin beer. Fine. Its a pumpkin-spiced beer. Not particularly roasty or malty. Not too sweet. Not the best pumpkin beer Ive ever had but I would drink it again.
