Availability: Fall

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.

I'm new to pumpkin ales I must admit. But I started with Wayerbacher Imperial Pumpkin ale. Perhaps that set the bar very high for me, because this ale is not even close to Wayerbacher. It is pleasant don't get me wrong, but it's watery and not nearly spicy enough. I will finish my six pack and never get it again. I love brooklyn brewery I really do but this one is not so great.

Not much to this beer, and I fail to detect the pumpkin flavor at all.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Flying Dog goblet (1414112141905)

A: Clear copper with a 3 finger head on a nice vigorous pour. Nice bit of lacing.

S: Very light with mostly notes of pumpkin.

T: Weird mix of flavors here that don't seem to work. There is this strange off-flavor present, that finishes it off and throws everything off.

M: Smooth with just a slight bit of carbonation.

O: After having some great pumpkin beers, this one is falling towards the bottom of the pack. Just not enough spice to back up the weird flavors in this.

Slightly sour note, lots of clove and cinnamon, ginger. Way too spicy for my liking.
