Notes/Commercial Description:
Early American colonialists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing ales, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious. Blended with barley malt, pumpkins became a commonly used beer ingredient. Post Road Pumpkin Ale brings back this tasty tradition. Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center, and crisp finish.

In the mood for a seasonal Thanksgiving beer, Bucky picked up a bottle of Post Road Pumpkin Ale ("PRPA") from his local LCBO. PRPA is produced by Brooklyn Brewery, and came in a brown, 355 ml bottle. The beer was 5.0% alcohol by volume.

Brooklyn Brewery was officially opened on May 28, 1996 when Mayor Rudy Giuliani cut the ribbon and poured the first official glasses of a Bavarian style wheat beer known as Brooklyner Weisse. The brewery went on to develop several new beers, including Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, Brooklyn Pennant Ale '55 and a list of seasonal and special beers. Brooklyn Brewery has grown over the years to the point where its beers can be enjoyed in 25 U.S. states and 20 countries.

PRPA poured a translucent orange/brown colour, taking on more of an amber hue when backlit. A steady stream of small, fast rising bubbles was visible, and pouring produced about 1" of off-white head, which settled down after four minutes to a thin, foamy cap that left some modest lacing down the glass. Its aroma was of pumpkin pie spices and hops, with the pumpkin spices being a little understated for me. The beer's flavour was of sweet malts with a hint of brown sugar up front, transitioning to the pumpkin pie spices, and finishing with a mild hop bitterness that lingered for a few seconds after swallowing the beer. Again, I found the pie spices to be too subtle for my taste. PRPA had a medium carbonation that suited it well, and I would describe it as light to medium bodied. Overall, this is a decent pumpkin beer, but simply not in the same class as say, Southern Tier's Pumking Ale. PRPA sells for $2.45 per 355 ml bottle, and is reasonably priced.The beer is available from August through November.

My first pumpkin ale, so here goes.
Orange pour, thin creamy head, sticky like syrup.
Smells of sugared pumpkin mash, cinnamon, nuts (almonds), and just a bit of bready malt to give a pumpkin pie aroma.
Taste is not what i expected. Reminding vaguely of vegetable stew, pumpkin is not too sweet and overencumbered by chunky doughy malts and toasted bread crust. Some acidic fruit too, like yellow apple and pear, lower oranges. Spices are mild: nutmeg, cinnamon, light (burnt) brown sugar. Dry grassy hops in the finish, mild bitterness. Malts stick around.
Low carbonation, smooth, but a heavy at times. Also has a certain rooty earthiness, dry and "fluffy".
Didn't know exactly what to expect, maybe a sweet spicy (expected ginger) beer, so i don't really know if the style is the problem or Post Road in particular. I wouldn't look again for this one, but i will definitely try more pumpkin ales.

The aroma for this beer starts with a ton of caramel and a touch of molasses. There’s also hit of fall spice and pumpkin, but a little more of the spice. The flavor follows similarly, bread and biscuit malts with some buttery notes. The pumpkin and spice come mostly as the aftertaste, rounded off with a good bitter balance. A nice fall classic from Brooklyn Brewery.

Brookly Brewery Post Road Pumpkin Ale
21A - Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer

Aroma 5/12
Immediately hit by thick meaty pumpkin which quickly dissipates. There are hints of pie spice that come through more as it warms - nutmeg, cinammon, cloves, all-spice.
As it warms a sweet toasted malt profile comes through. The nose dissipates in general and becomes very thin very quickly.

Appearance 3/3
Deep orange amber color. Clear. A medium-low amount of bubbles rising to the surface. Creamy, frothy off white head that slowly settles to a thick good creamy layer fully covering the surface. Thick foam sticks to the side of the glass and is easily reabsorbed by the beer as it washes over.

Flavor 10/20
Pumpkin meat flavor with sweet roasted barley malts and caramel. Gives way to a soft bitter aftertaste with a pumpkin meat still dominating. A tad watery, with a touch of sulfur to the mineral profile. As it warms the pie spices start to come subtly through and the pumpkin meat becomes very faint. These specialty ingredients take a backseat to the hops bitterness and sweet malt profile - with the exception of the cinammon/all-spice, which dominate with a high level of bitterness and astringency.

Mouthfeel 2/5
Medium bodied. Crisp. High carbonation. Very astringent - my tongue feels slightly numb from a large mouthfull. There is an alcohol warmth that is surprising for a 5% abv.

Overall Impression 4/10
It looks and starts out like a pumpkin ale but then turns into something else entirely as it warms. If the brewer was going for a good balance and trying not to make this an in your face pumpkin, he seems to have erred on the side of caution and understated the specialty ingredients. Reducing any cinammon/all-spice additives that may be present could help bring balance and reduce the high level of astringency. Try reducing the carbonation level to give a smoother feel.

One of the earliest pumpkin beers, IIRC, and an annual fave of mine. I have no idea why I have not reviewed it until now, but it should be my pleasure to do so.

From the bottle: "In the 18th Century, colonial Americans brewed wonderful and interesting ales by using local ingredients. Barley was the principal ingredient but pumpkins were also used. Pumpkinswere favored by brewers for their rich, spicy flavors, which melded perfectly with the malted barley. Post Road brings you a delicious rendition of this traditional American classic."

I remember when Brooklyn first came out with this beer as Jeff Wells and Xxxx Xxxx were their top two sales reps and I would frequently end up hanging out with the two of them, pre-/ during/ and/or post-festivals and they were really touting it.

My aggro pour netted three fingers of dense, but rocky, tawny head with good retention. Color was a coppery-amber (SRM = ~ 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose seemed to rely more heavily on nutmeg and vanilla than cinnamon, although that was also evident. Sticky lacing began to form as the head fell while I typed, so all was in readiness for the first sip. Mouthfeel was on the thin side, although not outright watery. The taste was a bit more muted than I remember in this one, slightly spicy, but not enough to peg the meter in either direction. I did get a pleasant wash of biscuit malt on the finish, though, which gave it a kind of cinnamon toast-like aspect. Overall, it did not live up to my memory, but I have had far worse, especially this year.

12oz. bottle into a Heady Topper stemless snifter.

Pours a .5 finger foamy white head with poor retention. Beer is a clear bright orange. Lacing is spotty and sparse with little cling. Solid.

Nose is cinnamon sugar, some spice and a touch of pumpkin puree. Average.

Opens cinnamon and nutmeg. Coarse brown sugar mixed with pumpkin spice and puree in the middle with an annoying, lingering bitterness in the background. End is spicy and moderately sweet with a filmy, bitter pumpkin skin aftertaste. Not that great.

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Crisp and clean in the mouth and goes down easy and touch watery. Accented finish with a slightly lingering, filmy aftertaste. Okay.

This beer's not bad at all but compared to a lot of the other Pumpkin beers that exist out there, it just doesn't have very much character that stands out. Pass on this one.

In just about every respect this beer falls short of what a pumpkin should be. Pours from the bottle light caramel in color. The aroma is cinnamon and pumpkin. Very effevescent with the bubbles on the palate. My least favorite part was the bitter hoppy finish. Not recommend for those that like Southern Tiers Pumpking.

It looks like they only add nutmeg instead of the usual mélange of pumpkin spices.

Aroma: Spicy notes up front, mostly nutmeg. I get some malty to grainy character. Not as aromatic as many of the beers I've been trying. No hop aroma.

Appearance: Suitably orange in color with excellent clarity. There is a fine bright white head that fades very quickly.

Flavor: Not a sweet beer, comes off as dry throughout the taste. Subtle to nearly absent spices in the flavor--hint of nutmeg and possibly cinnamon. I get a tingle from spice on the tongue. Has a bit of herbal astringency, coming off as medicinal but not overwhelming. No hop flavors.

Overall: Not a bad beer. Very drinkable, but the body is a bit light. Not a ton of spices here, but present. This may be a good gateway beer for those who don't like pumpkin beers since it is very restrained.

Very good. Possibly one of Brooklyn's best. Nice label. Sweet and approachable.

A: Pumpkin colored body with a great head but much lacing. Nice looker.

Smell: Sweet caramel malt, lots of fresh pumpkin and modest spice. Inviting. Not cloying.

Taste: Upfront follows smell ,with plenty of natural pumpkin flavor, perhaps as much as any except for ELYSIAN & SMUTTY which are "Must Try"; lesser spice profile, enough bitterness in the finish to be dry and a great food beer. well balanced. (in this case with NYC pizza on the ferry.)

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, Ho hum.

Drinkability: Natural pumpkin; Up there with the best. Nothing wrong with Pumpkin ales in the fall!

3.68/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Slightly cloudy, pale orange, fairly foamy head with this pour, looks fine to me.

Nose- Pumpkin puree, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, some cinnamon. Definitely dominated by the pumpkin associated flavors. A little maltiness as well.

Taste- A little disappointed here based on the initial smells, a little less intensity here. Still some pumpkin , although the spices take over a little more here. Some hoppy bitterness as well. Not sure I like the noticeable hop and pumpkin components together. Sweet pumpkin pie like finish.

Mouthfeel- A little thin but the head lingered for a while and gave it a nice contrast of textures. Went down nice.

Overall- Another quality pumpkin ale. Different from many as it has a strong pumpkin component and also a strong beer component, nicely done.

Brooklyn Brewery’s Post Road Pumpkin Ale

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a clear, orange/copper color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: A lot of spice: nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon, clove, pumpkin, malt and subtle hops.

Taste: Very similar to the aroma. Spicy with notes of nutmeg, brown sugar, cinnamon and clove, followed by some pumpkin, malt and finished with some hops. Not as sweet as other pumpkin beers I’ve had. Not as strong in flavor as other pumpkin beers, either.

Mouthfeel: Medium, with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.0%, there is no presence of alcohol on the palate.

Overall: This is a very good tasting beer. Very enjoyable, very refreshing, but I’m a little disappointed in it this year. It’s not as bold in pumpkin or spice flavors than I remember it being in past years. Still a good beer though.

Pours medium copper with fast fizzy foam that settles out. Pumpkin pie nose, nutmeg, cinnamon. Taste is a full rich pumpkin malt. Firm carbonation. Crisp. Strong hop backs the flavor nicely. Good spices. Really good.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Tan colored and well- filtered, this beer has a nose that is one of spices and vegetables. The foam level on this beer is average and there is only a small amount of lace.

The flavor of this beer emphasizes the taste of pumpkin, with some dessert- like spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, a touch of caramel, and some clove with pale malts in the background. The pumpkin flavor is rather subdued, but it is clear that this was brewed to be a pumpkin fall seasonal.

This beer is medium in body and one surprise is that the pumpkin flavor is less pronounced than with other beer. I have tasted some pumpkin brew that goes all- out with its pumpkin spice flavor. This one is much more subtle and some may criticize it for that reason. But even though the pumpkin flavor tends toward the light side, it is still nice and shouldn’t discourage anyone from trying it.

I like a good pumpkin beer and Post Road is a good, although not great, representative of this style. It’s an all- around likeable pumpkin ale that most anyone who tries it will find to their liking.

3.19/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

A - Copper to orange color and very clear. Head is light tan color, fluffy and made of tiny bubbles. It quickly shrinks to a thin sheen and thick lacing on the glass.

S - At the forefront is pumpkin pie; some slightly vegetal pumpkin, but mostly the spices are apparent. Malty aroma like an amber ale in the background.

T - The taste has the same vegetal pumpkin flavor to match the aroma. The pumpkin pie spices again dominate the actual fruit. No hops or alcohol flavors; malt is subdued.

M - Light to medium body. Moderate hops bitterness. No alcohol burn. Light carbonation. The finish leaves a "powdery" taste in the mouth that I have felt from some other heavily spiced beers.

O - There is nothing technically wrong with this beer, but I don't care for its emphasis on spices. It is more interesting than many pumpkin beers I've tried, but in my opinion, it is not all that pleasant. Just one more reminder to me why I don't like pumpkin beers.

3.78/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance:
Pours a deep, opaque orange color that supports a thin bone-white head. Head persistency is just OK, as is lacing and visible carbonation.

Aroma:
The aroma is fairly unique for the style.. Consisting of heavy clove and lavender. A very clean aroma, reminds me of being in a flower shop. Coriander and nutmeg round out the notable spicing.

Taste:
The aroma carries over to the flavor profile mostly intact, unfortunately it's muted. A light, caramel malt provides a simple backbone for the spices and notes of roasted pumpkin seeds. It's good but dull.

Mouthfeel:
Carbonation is quite low and the body is thin. It's a smooth drinker, however.

Overall:
This is, overall, a good beer. It's so easy to drink that it wouldn't offend the domestic beer fans in your family.

Appearance: It has a beautiful deep hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick light beige head that dies down moderately and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of bready and toasty malts, cinnamon, cloves nutmeg and some all-spice.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some bready and toasty malts upfront, some caramel and faint pumpkin pie notes of cinnamon, cloves, all-spice and nutmeg

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Not the greatest pumpkin ale but still very enjoyable.

A: Deep orange-brown with very minimal head and apparently very heavy carb, as there are tons of bubbles on the sides of the glass and floating quickly up from the bottom.

S: Generously spiced pumpkin pie. The spices come through much stronger than the pumpkin, which -make no mistake- is quite ample as well.

T: Pumpkin notes with very strong cinnamon and nutmeg flavor.

M: Thin and heavily carbonated. The strong spice presence leaves a pleasant, slightly burning (but it's a good burn) tingle on the tongue. I find this beer to be quite refreshing for a pumpkin ale. In my previous experiences with pumpkin ales, I've found them to be typically heartier and not so much refreshing. My only negative here is that carbonation. I'd think this beer would be much more pleasant to drink if the carbonation was dialed back.

O: Very good. I really enjoy the spice characteristics here. It's not too sweet, which is great, especially if you'd like to session this beer.

Special aside: This is the 100th beer on my "had" list.

Alright, I am giving Pumpkin another chance. Had it as a special beer at Luccas in Back Bay. Had it on tap. Poured a nice orange color with little head and decent carbonation. Very spivey sweet smell. Taste isn't half bad. Not something I want a to of, but has a mild mealtimes that balances the fake pumpkin taste. All in all ok. After the disastrous Shipyard, this may make me want to have 1 pumpkin ale a year. Ok beer. Not great, but almost done

Attractive beer with autumn orange body that is very clear. Full tan head. Very attractive.
Soft ale aroma with apparent pumpkin and spice. Pleasant and not too strong. No sweetness.
Again a solid ale with a unsweetened pumpkin and spice flavor. Hop flavors towards the finish, which is kinda' long. Rather drying as well and a lingering soft bitterness.
Quite a bit of carbonation, but it is soft and enhances the experience.
Well balanced and minimal excess. On target for style, although this one will be clearly enjoyed by some and not by others. It is an ale with pumpkin and due to the minimal sweetness more than one can be enjoyed in a session.
