Pours a deep copper color with a light almost non existent head,aroma is nutmeg and cloves just right for a pumpkin pie.Flavor is not as sweet as some other pumpkin ales with the spicey ness coming thru as it warms with a nice lingering maltiness in the finish.I notice a slight hop-dryness in there as well.A pretty good beer but New Holland Ichibod Ale is my favorite pumpkin beer so far.

Presentation: 12oz brown long neck with a no freshness date to be found.
Appearance: Amber with an orange tinge with a nice clarity. Decent creamy white head that sticks.
Smell: Sweet pie spice aroma (nutmeg, corriander, clove, all-spice). Light earthy hop and faint caramel malt aroma also.
Taste: Moderately bodied and crisp and smooth on the mouth. Loads of pumpkin pie spice upfront with a earthy/woody hop character. Underlying malt sweetness with flavours of caramel and sweet bread. Definite beer characteristics, which is uncommon with the many overdone pumpkin ales out there. Pumpkin flavour is very faint yet still adds to the complexity, a little on the sweet side. Just enough bitterness from the hops to balance yet not clash wit the spices. Mild tea-like hop flavour hides around the edges of the palate with a sweet grainy finish.
Notes: One of the better pumpkin ales to be had ... pumpkin pie all over. It's generally hard to have more than one pumpkin ale in a row, however this one is pretty damn drinkable.

I got this from genog as a Beer Powerball gift!
I'll admit I wondered if pumpkin beer would be okay in May but it is surprisingly good.
Smells all cinnamony, spicy and sweet. Has a white head with lots of lacing. Looks good, smells good...tastes good, too! Taste is rather sweet with loads of cinnamon and maybe a little clove. Nice bit of bitter hops to balance it out as well. This is really a very good beer. Much nicer than I was expecting.

Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: The body has a deep golden amber color with a tall foamy and off white colored head. The body has good clarity and the head has good retention as it slowly fades to a much thinner layer that hangs on well. On the way down the glass the head makes slick spotty lacing.
Smell: In the nose there are pleasant pumpkin pie spices like clove, allspice and defiantly cinnamon, with some sweet roasted grain as well.
Taste/Palate: The flavor has a base of sweet roasted grain and a healthy dose of bitter spice and dry leafy hops. Clove, cinnamon and other pie spices pop out and there is just enough pumpkin flesh flavor to make it work. The palate has a tingly carbonation and a medium body.
Notes: This is a solid Pumpkin ale with just enough balance for my taste.

12 oz bottle pours a clear, honey amber body with a small, offwhite head that quickly drops to a film and collar. Sticky, patch lace is abundant. Pie spices take a backseat to caramel maltiness and herbal hops in the aroma. Light medium body with good carbonation. Pie spices dominate the taste, if not the aroma. Cinnamon and nutmeg flavors are most assertive, with malty caramel and fresh pumpkin in the background. Plenty of spicy and herbal hops provide a solid bitterness to balance. Decent drinkability for a pumpkin ale.

I do not like pumpkin ale. I do not like post road pumpkin ale. It pours orangy amber, with a white head composed of tiny bubbles. Leaves light wispy lacing. This beer is loaded with halloweeny pumpkiny spices. Its sweet and cloying and all together not to my liking. One of the very few not spoiled, not macro brews that I have swilled down the drain in the life

Pours a orange amber, slight rust color. Nice foamy head recedes a bit, but sticks around the sides.
Smell is a bit cinnamonny, with pumpkin and nutmeg as well.
Taste is very easy and balanced. Nutmeg up front, with some sweet cinnamon, balanced off in the end with some very subtle bittering hops.
Mouthfeel of the liquid is nice, but the spices feel a bit powdery and chalky.
Very easy drinking, and new-user friendly. This is the one that started the whole pumpkin craze, and it is a nice entry level offering to the category.

3.7/5 rDev +6.6%
Appearance: 1 inch head, orange-brown, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell: cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin
Taste: cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar, toasted malt, and pumpkin..with a tad bit of hops in the end.
Mouthfeel: sweet start and body with a slightly bitter finish, medium bodied, and high carbonation.
Drinkability: Dangerously drinkable, especially for the style. I like how this has a marzen taste to it. The spicing seems just right and I could have two or three. Brooklyn seems to do seasonal Autumn beers quite well.
