Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 10-09-2001

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.

This beer is great up until the mouth-feel, just very light, otherwise, everything I look for in a pumpkin beer. Mildly spiced.

Pours with a white, small head. Has a dark golden color. The smell has an awful stench of bad squash rather than pumpkin. Thankfully, it doesn't taste as it smells. The pumpkin is prevalent, but not overwhelming, combing well with the brewed spices.

Clear light pumpkin-orange color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is of spiced pumpkin pie, cool and refreshing. I personally would say this is your average seasonal pumpkin ale with more dry spice than actual true pumpkin flavor. Very seldom do you get a pumpkin ale that tastes like pumpkin and is not overpowered with dry cinnamon and nutmeg. Unfortunately, this beer falls into the dry spice category. Overall, feels ok and the balance is not THAT bad. Average beer
