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.

A lot of people came into my job looking for this after we sold our two cases so I figured id give it a try. Pours a nice amber/orange color with a very faint pumpkin scent and a slight "beer" scent. Decent sized head with decent retention.

Unfortunately the beer didn't live up to the build up. Nice thing carbonated mouth feel that goes down easy but not much else. Slight traces of pumpkin, allspice, and cinnamon, but not much. All these flavors quickly dissipate however when you swallow and a very moderate hop presence makes itself known. More like a beer with a slight pumpkin flavor than a pumpkin ale.

not what I want when I want pumpkin ales

well, it's better than bill's pumpkin ale, but i just do not understand the pumpkin ale thing. i don't like pumpkin pie, and it is much worse in a beer. a few of my buddies loved this, so i gave it a try. it was a big mistake. again, it is better than the other pumpkin i have had, but it is still just not right to me

Appearance – Dark amber color with creamy off-white head.

Aroma – Huge Cinnamon smell with a hint of clove.

Palate – Smooth thin mouth feel.

Flavor – Tastes like it smells. Smooth and clean taste upfront that leads into an overwhelming cinnamon and clove aftertaste.

Final thoughts – Not much in the way of pumpkin pie flavor. It should be renamed Cinnamon Ale because it totally dominates the flavor. To me this was a very disappointing experience.
