From notes... Props to my BA in crime joemcgrath27 for the seasonal delivery!
A - Pours a slightly hazy golden copper colour with an orange hue, finger of soapy head, solid retention and sporadic lacing.
S - Musty caramel, nutmeg, cinnamon, earthy pumpkin, and a hint of leafy green hops.
T - The caramel and toffee undertones make for a deliciously balanced ale with the earthy pumpkin coming through alongside the leafy hops. The spices are subtle but present with nutmeg, cinnamon, all-spice and vanilla coming through. Unique peppery spice lingers on the palette.
M - Medium, smooth and wet... The perfect combination.
O - Nicely balanced pumpkin and malt undertones, nice leafy hops and uniquely spiced. Not overly spiced and some solid pumpkin presence. A solid gourd ale.

Nearly clear, orange colored ale with a pale tan head of 3 fingers. Good lacing.
It smells like pumpkin pie and light toasted malts. Kind of nice.
The taste has a light sweeteness upfront, some citrusy tartness in the middle, and a rising bitterness in the end. Disappointingly nondescript after the aroma.
Moderate in body with a slight tingle and the warmth of alcohol.
I really liked the aroma, but overall I was a bit dissapointed.

Brooklyn Brewery has been one of my favourite brewers at "The Great Canadian Beerfest" Victoria BC Canada since their first appearance in 2008 although they did not pour Post Road PA at this years fest , I found this at the Quadra St. Cascadia Liquor Store
during the limited October pumpkin ale season , pleasant enough in appearance and smell , I was disapointed in both taste and mouthfeel , just a little to watery for my taste buds

A - Clear goldenrod with a pervasive orange hue. Minimal white head.
S - Sweet pumpkin upfront followed by standard pie spicing layered with molasses syrup with cinnamon and ginger as the dominating aromas. Light hop aroma.
T - Subdued spicing over squashy pumpkin with a not unpleasant gourd aftertaste. Some hop bitterness. Mellow and restrained in comparison to the expectations offered by the smell.
M - Smooth and light with a crisp finish.
O - Refreshing and generally well-balanced, probably a more traditional and colonial-inspired representation of the style.

A: Pours a clear straw yellow with orange highlights. A moderate amount of white head forms initially with a thin layer remaining behind. Vigorous carbonation visible.
S: Pumpkin pie spices predominate in the nose with notes of molasses and gourdy pumpkin character underneath. There is also a hint of graininess like you might smell in an American lager.
T: The flavor isn't quite as robust as you would expect from the aroma. The main flavor has a grain-like character with a touch of pumpkin/gourd character. Just a hint of pumpkin pie spices, barely detectable.
M: The body is fairly light, and with the high carbonation you wind up with a somewhat thin tasting beer.
O: Not a bad beer, but not exceptional either. Could be good on a warm day as opposed to a chilly autumn as it is a rather refreshing drink.
