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.

Pours a bright copper colored brew with a one finger head. Aroma is nutmeg and pumpkin. Taste is very light and largely pumpkin. This is one of the lightest pumpkin brews I've had. It has a crisp, clean taste but not one that a pumpkin aficionado might look forward to.

Copper-colored beer with a fast-receding white head. The nose is mild and has notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. Carbonation is high. There is very little flavor -- and the little flavor is disagreeable; almost sour (in a bad way). A more substantial malt base would help this mediocre ale.

First taste felt and tasted like cinnamon perfume. Lacking pumpkin. The cinnamon and nutmeg kill its flavor.

Possibly the most disappointing pumpkin beer I have ever had. Pleasant coppery color with virtually no head.
Nose is light with some odd notes. Flavor is slightly malty with some fall spice notes but the pumpkin is lacking.
Finish is bitter with a chemical after taste.

Look – Light orange color with a mostly transparent body helped by chill haze. Got a hefty two fingers of fluffy, white head.

Aroma – Subtle pumpkin with a strong malt and cracker character.

Taste – Pumpkin is bigger here than it was on the nose, but even then, it still isn’t very robust. More concerning if the aftertaste which is dirty and unpleasant. It has a mossy/grassy taste, but not in a fresh hop sense, but again, just dirty.

Mouthfeel – Body is light and crisp. Arguably thin at times, but it moves the beer along.

Overall – Pretty bland overall and the taste was just off. Any pumpkin that was there was too hidden behind a thin body and bad aftertaste.

Unfortunately this is one of the worst pumpkin beers I've had. Barely any flavor, super thin mouthfeel. Definitely disappointed, this was my first brew from this brewery. Just super not into this one
