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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

355 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - clear orange color, 1 finger of head. Decent retention time and some visible carbonation.

Smell - plenty of pumpkin, spices namely cinnamon and nutmeg. Some earthiness beneath. Straightforward and to the point.

Taste - starts sweet and pumpkin like, with and element of bitterness following the initial rush. Spices shine through here too. Yummy and surprisingly flavourful for a 5.0% ABV beer.

Mouthfeel - smooth, light bodied with a moderately dry finish. Feel is good but not great as it's a bit thinner than optimal.

Overall - very good pumpkin beer, focused a lot of the spices that are normally associated with pumpkin rather than pumpkin directly. However, the pumpkin still deserves top billing as the interplay between the earthy pumpkin and the spices makes this a very tasty beer that advocates should try.
