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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Didn't expect to have a pumpkin this late, however I found it locally and gave it a go.

A - Mostly clear coppery-orange with rising bubbles, fantastic lacing, and over a finger of off white head that retains a little.

S - Nose is of spiced pumpkin. Maltiness, cinnamon, some nutmeg are all in there. Balanced. Very nice.

T - Nice toasted grain and malt along with an authentic pumpkin taste that comes through in the middle and lingers in the finish. Spices are nicely subdued but complimentary in the background. Some slightly bitter hoppiness on the back end as well.

MF - Medium-bodied, fairly smooth, and perhaps a bit overcarbonated for my liking.

O - This is the kind of pumpkin ale I was looking for the past two months. Very nice.
