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.

Not offensive in any way. Mild sweet pumpkin aroma with muted spices. Smooth clean taste with crisp medium-high carbonation. Pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla are detectable, but just barely. Decent light pumpkin ale, but probably not one I'll buy again.

Poured bottle into glass. 5% abv

Appearance- Clear medium dark orange with a foamy slightly off-white head.

Smell- Nutty aroma with a bit of pumpkin and spices in the background.

Taste- Some light malt up front turns into that of fresh pumpkin. More than the nose suggests. Later in the flavor profile, the pumpkin turns on more and lingers with some bitterness. A nutmeg like flavor is also present but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel- Thin just like a lager. Adequate carbonation. Quite crisp.

Overall- A decent pumpkin beer and worth a try when all the Fall beers appear. The spices are not overdone and pumpkin flavor is there. Easy drinking and flavorful.
