Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 10-09-2001

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: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an orange-amber color with a nice amount of white creamy head with some lacing.

The scent is of mainly spices, nutmeg and clove are apparent, also some caramel malt and notes of hops.

The taste is of pumpkin spice and nutmeg, sweet caramel malt, some bread, some notes of earthy hops.

Medium body, smooth and crisp, moderate carbonation.

This was a decent pumpkin ale, nothing extraordinary, but easy to drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Chilled 12 oz. bottle into a stemless tulip pint. Best By Jan 2013 printed on bottle.

Look- Honey amber, light homogenous haze. Three fingers of dense, crackly foam that settles to a dense ring of suds over five minutes or so. Sparse lacing.

Smell- Fairly spicy, heavy cinnamon and nutmeg, apple cider, light caramel sweetness.

Taste- A little bland after the nose, and a lot heavier on the dusty nutmeg flavor. Significant caramel, with a surprisingly assertive earthy hop presence and a vaguely apple-like fruit flavor. Tealike finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, soft carbonation, nearly flat after a vigorous pour. Strong mineral/chalky feel.

Overall- It's fine, but I have to say that I'd prefer if they went all the way and presented more of a dessert beer. As it is, it's better than most lighter pumpkin/pumpkin spice ales, but I find myself wanting more spice flavor and the feel is a bit dull and lifeless.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving was from a 12 oz bottle

Appearance-Orange hue with light coming through resin. Foam was a finger's worth, and lasted 5 minutes.

Smell-Mild spices, clove and a faint peach. Fresh aromas of faint cinnamon linger the most while still sipping.

Taste-solid, not a spice-bomb, but has that complexity of a fruit beer. Nice Hops flavor in the background.

Mouthfeel-light carbonation, ephemeral mouthfeel.

Overall-Solid Pumpkin beer. When I'm not in the mood for sweet and spicy syrup (like Pumpking,, which I do get a hankering for at times), this is my alternate go-to.
