Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Fall

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.

Pours an orange amber color with an off white head. Good lacing.
Smells like pumpkin and spices.
Tastes like... pumpkin and spices. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and a bit of caramel.
Medium body and carbonation.

My first pumpkin beer! pretty interesting. Tastes like a bitter pumpkin pie. Would try it again, but I might rather try some new pumpkin beers. Not bad at all though. Quite interesting.
