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.

Pours a filtered polished copper with a thin slightly off-white head. Aromas of pumpkin spices, nutmeg, all with a slight chemical tinge to it. Light bodied mouthfeel with tastes of light pumpkin, light maltiness, with a light vanilla finish. Feels a bit manufactured and lacking a naturalness. Wouldn’t buy this one again.
