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.

Ive been looking to get my hands on some of this for some time now, glad to have it in my possesion finally!

A- Nice amber orange color. Small creamy head leaves lace.

S- Lots of pumpkin spice in the aroma as well as cinnamon, nutmeg,clove. Fairly nice.

T- Good flavors of pumpkin with caramel malts dominating most of the flavor. Cinnamon, some cardamom, touch of nutmeg, hops are present in the finish lending a nice earthyness to the brew.

M- medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

D- Good drinkable pumpkin ale.

Overall alot of spice flavors, maybe a little too much but im not complaining. Great flavor in my opinion. Hope to get more of this next year.
