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 (351) - 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.

Decent fall seasonal. Aromas and flavors of pumpkin, spice and earth. Not too sweet with biscuit finish. Copper color with a light body.

Bottle. Amber with of white head. Aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg. Medium body, medium sweetness, cinnamon and other pumpkin spices

willisread (3395) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2017
Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Pours a clear copper witih a small white head. Light cinnamon and caramel nose. Simple and easy drinking with some lingering cinnamon and clove on the finish. Simple pumpkin beer.

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)

sarauckelman (542) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Clear orange with no head. Sharp spicy aroma of allspice and a hint of vegetation. Rich and malty with a vegetal undertone. Light bodied. Very mellow and well blended.

uckelman (805) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2017
Pours clear amber, ring of head. Aroma is pie spices. Texture is sort of foamy/lively/creamy. Roasty flavors.

The_Osprey (8211) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
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 it’s more orange in nature. But whether or not it’s 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. It’s mostly dry, more like a cracker, with a very faint pumpkin touch, playing in the background instead of shouting in the foreground.
